Short Review: Lil Yachty ‘Lil Boat 2’

Yachty’s feature game has been strong this past little while and now he’s getting back to celebrating himself with the arrival of Lil Boat 2. The cherry-braided 20-year-old rapper Lil Yachty, self-proclaimed “king of teens” and the son of a friend of Coach K’s. Yachty’s popularity on Sound Cloud quickly spilled over into a run on features in 2016 that yielded the multi-platinum singles “Broccoli” and “iSpy.”

Lil boat 2 runs 17 tracks in length and features appearances from 2 Chainz, Quavo and Offset of Migos, Lil Pump, Ugly God, Young Boy Never Broke Again, Trippie Red, K$upreme, Tee Grizzley and more. Insanely interesting

The release of “Lil Boat 2” is seen as a single sequel album, this is because of the first track where Lil Yachty brings a unique charming sound making fun playful music beats giving a distinct sound and showing difference to a degree making it a standout.

LIL yachty’s altered singing tracks also fueled the lobo basically the tape which links you to the lil yachty boat 1”She ready” and “Love me forever” which is super average. With the remaining 80% of the tacks being insanely uninteresting as he loses everything that made him interesting where he substituted the goofy singing with a low key style of rapping sounding as if he’s timid.

Lil Boat 2 sounds so sluggish an act of displaying poverty in songwriting in his raps. Songwriting clearly isn’t his strongest suit. It can be entertaining to watch the gears turn, though. There aren’t any moments where he’s noticeably outpaced by his more gifted guests, as he holds his own with NBA YoungBoy, Tee Grizzley, 2 Chainz, and Offset.

On his last mixtape Yachty sounds divisive when chasing fresher, weirder styles instead of focusing in hip-hop story traditions.
