Summer Songs 2

Lil Yachty
Mixtape // August 25, 2016

There are times when it’s hard to tell if Lil Yachty’s rise wasn’t born out of a dare to make a trap lullaby. His productions are often jovial, summery tunes that share more in common with “Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star” than anything by fellow ATL rappers like Lil Wayne or Young Thug.

Summer Songs 2 proves Yachty can entertain across a wide range of productions. He offers a response to his haters, places himself on the throne, and throws himself a party. Yachty successfully asserts his ability to navigate the often fickle internet youth culture–much like Soulja Boy did a decade ago, but a lack of depth can cut the party short. After all, summer doesn’t last forever.
