Lil Yachty has been making a lot of news lately. After he recently talked about how he has been spending more than $50,000 a month on his volition. He also has been grinding hard while working on music. He just released that “No More Beatboxing Freestyle” where he drops rhythmic bars over Coi Leray’s “No More Parties” & SpotEmGottem’s “Beat Box.”

While dropping the bars on his TikTok viral song, he revealed how Kanye West and him had a confrontation with each other when he was 18 and tried to sign him on his music label.

I was only eighteen years old when Kanye tried to sign me/N-ggas gangsters online ’til you see ’em named Mahatma Gandhi

Even though Lil Yachty has become one of the most recognized faces in rap, he had an feature in one of the shows you probably wouldn’t expect. He modelled for Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show in the February 2016, which happened that NYC’s Madison Square Garden.

Lil Yachty also appeared on the Gillie Da Kid and Wallo’s Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast where he discussed the frustrations of trying to make rap less angry instead of being just another one of the street rappers.

Ideally, when someone says rap, the first thing that comes to mind is trap. And it’s easier, quicker and there’s a blueprint already made for it. That’s why there’s so much more of that than there would be someone in my lane or someone who raps about other things. I think I came and skyrocketed because my generation completely changed rap. We changed the rules — my whole thing was to make it so that rap didn’t have to be so angry. It was so hood, so street, so gangster.
