Forget the hits, focus on the authenticity.
"I fuck with SoundCloud and fucked with the wave, but I had to go up and get this money."
"A lot of the traditionalists of hip-hop try to not give Yachty props."
"He gets me. He knows what I like. He gets what I do."
Give me a fucking break.
Yachty's reported publishing deal with UMP is a teachable moment for all artists.
'True to Self''s surprise drop spoiled No. 1 hopes for 'Teenage Emotions'.
From Slim Shady to Lil Boat to Quasimoto, hip-hop has a long history of artists with multiple personas.
Boat's bloated "debut" packs fearless risk-taking and some keepers, but suffers from an unrelenting runtime and tedious subject matter.
To truly understand someone, you have to know where they came from and who influenced their development.
