It's no secret that Lil Yachty has been on many a mind lately, and everybody and their mother has an opinion on the divisive emcee. While Yachty rocked the proverbial boat with his recent tête-à-tête with Joe Budden, it seemed like many were quick to see things as strictly dichotomous; real rap and "mumble rap" could no longer be mutually exclusive. Now, underground rhymer Nino Bless is the latest to add his voice to the discourse with the provocatively titled "Let's Kill Yachty."
While fans of Yachty may be quick to catch feelings over the title, the track is ultimately defending the good King Boat. With a brilliant use of Yachty's soundboard friendly "chiiiiiiillll," what may have initially been perceived as a diss emerges as a shout-out to the young rapper's unconventional accomplishments. If that isn't clear by the conclusion, Bless closes things out by saying "leave Yachty the fuck alone, I'm a real lyricist, and I co-sign Yachty."
We're the black rocks and the vanguards,
And funds funneled through Viacom in a prison
So if a rap star goes against its agenda, that's when he's blackballed
It's no conspiracy it's real rap ya'll
It's a fact, it ain't where you from it's where you at dawg
