Review: Lil Yachty – Lil Boat

Lil Yachty comes through with nothing to lose and nothing to prove on his new album Lil Boat. This album is a melodic trap album with heavy hitting bass and drums. While rap is nothing new, Lil Yachty manages to hold his own weight on tracks such as Minnesota and Wanna Be Us. His lyrical wordplay is very clever he raps on this album. Lil Yachty indeed is very clever with his lyrical wordplay.

Minnesota is one of those which rapidly rises Lil Yachty into becoming famous. The song was the hottest song of 2016 due to those trap beats. Lil Yachty displays an array of cocky and braggadocious raps over trap beats on Minnesota.

The streets are as cold as Minnesota and are as cold like Minnesota where Lil Yachty is from. It’s hard to stay in the streets if you cant take the heat. The streets are heartless and cold like Minnesota. The streets don’t give a fuck about you.

Minnesota is memorable for its catchy and repetitive lyrics and chorus line.

Cause it’s cold like Minnesota, cold like Minnesota, it gets cold like Minnesota
You need to stay up out them streets if you cant take the heat
You need to stay up out them streets if you cant take the heat

Minnesota was performed in D major at a tempo of 130 BPM.

Minnesota was performed in the D major key relying on the chords of B and G at a number 7 and 9 in the octave range. Those electronic piano keys you playing throughout of song use the keys and chords of B, D major, and F#m minor. The song uses the following keys of D#, A#, Gm, G, Cm, C, F#m, D, and G#. Which in turn are a mixture of major keys and minor keys.


Cause it’s cold like Minnesota, cold like Minnesota, it gets cold like Minnesota

Run/Running is not about sports contrary to the song’s title. The song Run/Running is unfortunately about drugs.

A young nigga named Lil Boat just ran the sack up. He just raised the leverage. He put the purple codeine in his beverage. Fuck with Lil Boat’s gang and you gonna get slayed. And I promise everything on Lil Yachty is good enough. He can’t be NAZ because that nigga not rich enough. Lil Yachty can see it in his eye that nigga NAZ is broke. Lil Yachty be laughing at his jokes. Lil Yachty be fucking on these hoes.

He don’t even got no time to waste money on these dimes as he is making his way in life. These niggas broke they can’t hang around Lil Yachty. They can’t hang around him unless they run their sack up. We keep on running it up. He can’t even stress it enough. His pockets just ain’t fat enough. People say, “Lil Boat, you changed” They say, “Lil Boat, don’t forget about your fam”

I rate this album 4/5****!
