Lil Yachty Says He Finally Listened to Both of The Notorious B.I.G.’s Albums
Lil Yachty recently appeared on Big Boy's Neighborhood and discussed several topics including his upcoming album, his beef with Soulja Boy and how he recently listened to both of The Notorious B.I.G.'s albums, Ready to Die and Life After Death.
Lil Boat goes in-depth about the Biggie situation beginning around the 6-minute, 30-second mark of the interview. He explains that he meant no disrespect when he called the New York hip-hop legend "overrated," or when he told Billboard he “honestly couldn’t name five songs” from Tupac Shakur or The Notorious B.I.G. He was simply telling the truth. You can view the interview in its entirety above via YouTube.
Yachty talks about how he was born in 1997 after Biggie had already passed, and he simply wasn't alive to feel Frank White's true impact. He discusses how, growing up, he would only hear Atlanta rap including Jeezy, T.I. and Outkast. The main thing that should be understood from the interview is that Yachty definitely respects Biggie's legacy, so the 19-year-old deserves a break from the many haters out there.
At one point in the interview, around the 14-minute mark Yachty says he has never eaten a vegetable in his entire life. It's well-documented that he doesn't drink alcohol or smoke; however, he does have a sweet tooth. Yachty says that his tour menu consists of fruit loops with marshmellows, fruit snacks, pepperoni pizza, Hawaiian Punch, pineapple Fanta, M&Ms, gushers, cinammon sticks, and three cases of water to throw at the crowd.
Around the five-minute mark in the video, Yachty talks about how Soulja Boy used their beef as a marketing strategy. Additionally, Lil Boat discusses his upcoming album, slated to drop in December. He confirms that he'll record the entire project once he's off tour.
