Like the works of its humble forebears Lil B and the venerable Soulja Boy, Lil Boat is the kind of music that does not need to make a case for its own value, only judged on the intangible, absurdist metrics of its self-contained universe.

Atlanta rapper and auto-tuned crooner Lil Yachty somehow inserts a feeling of innocence into the trap world with his odd voice and blissful production on this breakout mixtape.

There isn’t a single thing Lil Yachty’s doing that someone else isn't doing better, and in richer details. On Lil Boat, his debut mixtape, he makes a grating mess of these varying influences.

Lil Yachty is a rapper from Atlanta and he is one of the souncloud rappers who makes me move my head the most. Lil Yachty raps, "Lil Boat" hums. Title after title, the two draw a pink candy bubble gum cloud trap, sweet and friendly. Lil Yachty's songs are like nursery rhymes: minimalist, sometimes annoying, resolutely catchy ("Minnesota" in particular) and the flow is rubbery. Enamelled with references to childhood, from the World of Nemo to Mario, "Lil Boat: The ... read more
