But there's one older rapper whom he has nothing but respect for. Boat explained why he fucks with Kendrick Lamar in a Montreality interview.
"He understands all eras," Yachty said of K.Dot. "Like, when I first met Kendrick—not the first time I met him, I met him before and then I met him met him like sat down and talked with him—he understood me. I woulda never expect him to fucking get me, understand me. But he gets me, understands me. He knows what I like. He gets what I do ... like, he genuinely understands me." "Most niggas who do one thing, they one-sided like that," Yachty continued. "They spit, they don't fuck with the other shit. They like, 'that's shit's wack.' He respects all, everything. I fuck with Kendrick. That's a real nigga. If I could get in that studio with him it would be amazing."Listen to his words about Kendrick.
Do you think Kung Fu Kenny would jump in the studio with Boat?
Later in the interview, Yachty ranks Drake's albums and puts Take Care on top.
