Lil Yachty Explains Why He Isn’t Going On Tour With Lil Baby
Lil Yachty has always stood out in the hip-hop scene as a one-of-a-kind talent. For example, in 2016, he released the mixtape Lil Boat, which was dubbed “bubblegum trap” as a new subgenre. Lil Boat was a joy to listen to from beginning to end, from the high-pitched autotune to the effervescent beats.
Although Yachty’s followers praised his music, it is evident that it is not for everyone. Yachty is well aware of this, and he stated on DJ Akademiks’ Off The Record show that he could never tour with Lil Baby, his labelmate. When pressed to explain himself, Yachty stated that he is in a different lane and that he would be scrutinized.
“I’m not going in front of Lil Baby, bro,” Yachty stated. “Motherfuckers gonna look at me crazy, ‘What the fuck n***a, get off that stage.’ I’m not going in front of that n***a at all… We are in such different lanes, if someone’s coming to see him, they are not tryna hear me. We are on two different ends of the spectrum.”
Yachty has a lot of bangers in his library, and his fans usually go crazy when he performs. For the time being, though, you’re more likely to see him with Tyler, the Creator than Lil Baby.
