American rapper, Lil Yachty, released his new album, “Let’s Start Here,” on Friday, January 27th, seeing a change in the style of music he has been well-known for.
The 29-year-old explained that the sonic shift he made the new album with, inspired him to separate himself from his copycats. He explained saying: “If we just gonna be honest, I mean, I had n-ggas that were copying the swag,” he said confidently. “I just felt like ‘Okay, cool, everyone can do this, that’s fine. But I’m gonna show y’all what y’all can’t do.’ You feel me? That’s what’s on this other side.”
He clearly stated that he wanted to be taken seriously as an artist via a clip he shared on social media. “I wanted to be really taken serious because music is, like, everything to me. I respect all walks of music, not just rap and hip-hop, everything. So I think I wanted to make something to show the world just how great it was to me.”
He encouraged his fans to savor his new album to understand his new style of music.
I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO LISTEN FULLY THROUGH THE FIRST TIME. DONT SKIP, DONT SHUFFLE. I NEED U TO HEAR IT HOW ITS INTENDED PLZ.
