Writer Rembert Browne met Lil Yachty in Los Angeles and New York, accompanying him during his rigorous promo schedule just before the release of his first studio album, Teenage Emotions. Browne documents five days in the life of the atypical rapper, including an inspiring appearance on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 and a wild episode of Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. During the story, Yachty balances youth and adulthood in moments of “uninhibited earnestness, blissful ignorance, and ever-connectedness,” and proves why he’s king to many of his teenage peers — just before he turns 20.
Lil Yachty on his busy social life:
“I hate being alone. That’s why I like being with my friends: we’ve got energy, we’re social as hell. I’m not 30 or anything — I’m 19.”
On being treated like a child:
“Some of that shit is so lame. I push this ‘king of the teens’ shit, but they be thinking teens like 13. On some super corny, under-underage shit. It happens all the time.”
