What is there to say about Lil Yachty? He’s unorthodox, he does what he wants and he’s one of the most popular rappers in the world at the age of 19. From the golden grills to the red dreads to the heavy auto tune he’s captivating listeners all around the world.

 

Lil Yachty, also known as Lil Boat, recently came out with his first studio album titled “Teenage Emotions” on May 26, 2017. The album consists of 21 songs and features from artists such as YG and the rap group Migos.

 

However, to be brutally honest, this album was not good. There was no flow to the album, each song being produced by a different producer and having a completely different sound and idea, and Yachty just isn’t a quality rapper.

 

His lyrics are mediocre, his flow sounds awkward and his voice is a constant monotone. Admittedly, there’s a few good songs such as “Peek a Boo” or “Forever Young,” but the majority of this album is lackluster.

 

Lil Boat’s limitations as a rapper are on perfect display in “DN Freestyle” in which he sounds off-beat the whole song and his lyrics have no true meaning. His voice sounds like more of a mumble than a rap.

 

Despite my dislike for the album, I can’t help but admire what he’s doing with his career. As a 19 year old he’s taking the rap world by storm and making millions of dollars while loving life. He’s always happy and appreciates the blessings he’s received. He acknowledges the criticism he receives from the outside world and really doesn’t care at all because at the end of the day he’s still making money and loving his life. How can you not respect that?

 

I also enjoy the idea of the album. It’s supposed to be an album emphasizing representation for all people in society no matter race, gender, social standing or any other ways society attempts to judge an individual by. The cover-art is a perfect example of this as he represents multiple races, a gay couple, a mentally-disabled male and several other individuals society may consider “outsiders.” The album is about acceptance and loving life.

 

While I appreciate the idea and respect Yachty, I simply would not recommend listening to this album. I didn’t enjoy listening to it and would not listen to it again. The whole album isn’t terrible but for the most part it was rough.
