Khalid Recruits Rae Sremmurd and Lil Yachty for “Young Dumb & Broke” Remix
The ascendant Khalid pulls up with a remix of "Young Dumb & Broke," a track off his American Teen album. Naturally, he brings Rae Sremmurd and Lil Yachty—both acts who've pretty much branded themselves as being voices for the youth—along for the ride. Stream it below.
The remix finds Khalid, who recently linked up with Calvin Harris for a track called "Rollin," singing about life as a young, dumb and broke teenager dealing with life as a high schooler. Rae Sremmurd and Yachty sing-rap from the perspective of teens who've made it to the other side.
First to go after Khalid's verses is Swae Lee, who croons on about a girl trying to reach him using the same number she did back in 2010. Next up is Slim Jxmmi, who pretty much addresses his come-up over the course of about 12 bars. Then there's Yachty.
In a verse that sounds like something straight off Teenage Emotions, Yachty touches on transitioning from being an insecure student to a globe-trotting rap star. He definitely goes in.
"Back in high school Boat was so emotional/Now I'm super rich and everything I do is so promotional," Yachty sing-raps on the remix. "I didn't finish college, so my momma thought I wouldn't be shit/I had to prove her wrong (yah)/That's why I talk about her now in every single song."
