As with all of Lil Yachty’s tapes to date, ‘Michigan Boy Boat’ is fast on ideas and entertainment. He remains very stylised, though – if you like that style, fine, but there are few concessions.

Pitchfork
The mixtape struggles when the focus shifts to Yachty. He doesn’t have Mike’s commanding voice or Rio’s recklessness, the laid-back swag of Babyface Ray or the out-of-pocket insanity of YN Jay.

The mixtape format may excuse the lack of sonic cohesion for the project, but it does not explain the faltering artistic direction.

Michigan Boy Boat falls short as a showcase for both Yachty and the Michigan talent he brought on board.
