Lil Yacthy likes to push buttons.
That's why he said "Fuck J.Cole" and compared himself to Nas.
But he probably won't be comparing himself to Biggie and Tupac anytime soon. That's because the 19-year old admits he doesn't really know anything about the two rap legends.
In an interview with Billboard, Boat says he "honestly couldn't name five songs" from either Big or Pac.
"But if I'm doing this my way and making all this money," he reasonably inquires, "why should I do it how everybody says it's supposed to be done?"Yachty's way is an auto-tuned nursery-rhyme-like warble which he calls "bubble-gum trap," and which has offended some old (and some not so old) heads.
What do you think? Is Yachty forming his own lane by trolling legends and rapping simple? Or is he destined to be a flash in the pan?
