Lil Yachty drops (like an anchor, get it?) Lil Boat 2

This post was originally published on this site

Avast, ye landlubbers, lest ye want to miss this here news. ICYMI, Lil Yachty — he of hair red and aliases many — revealed the cover art and release date for his Lil Boat sequel, the appropriately titled Lil Boat 2.

Today, it’s finally time to say: Set sail! Anchors away! Bon Voyage! Take a Dramamine if things get too rough out there; you know how you get! Other things related to boats! Because today is the day that Lil Boat 2 is out.

So yeah, stop waiting around, and go STREAM or DOWNLOAD or BUY the thing if you’d like.

“How can I be expected to listen when I don’t know what songs are even on this album,” you ask? Well here it is, the heretofore unknown Lil Boat 2 tracklist. It’s got two Migos on two different songs, fits into the greater Lil-verse with additional features from Lil Pump and Lil Baby, and has a song whose title is either a reference to the seminal Karl Marx text Das Kapital, or the Washington Capitals.

I’m guessing you probably don’t need to see that cover art again before you view that tracklist, though, right? So, here’s the back cover instead:

Lil Boat 2 tracklist:

01. Self-Made
02. Boom! featuring Ugly God
03. Oops featuring K$upreme and 2 Chainz
04. Talk to Me Nice featuring Quavo
05. Get Money Bros. featuring Tee Grizzley

You good? So what’s the hold up? Go on and listen!

Pop Radio’s Love Affair With White Rappers Continues Apace

This post was originally published on this site

“Let You Down” begins with plaintive minor-key piano chords and a trembling vocal run through that omnipresent chipmunk effect, the wildly popular pitched-up modulation that makes the human voice sound slightly alien. The singer intones, “All these voices in my head get loud/ I wish that I could shut them out/ I’m sorry that I … More »

Your Guide To The 2018 Grammys: Will They Leave Kendrick Out In The Cold Again?

This post was originally published on this site

The Grammys are this weekend — Sunday at 7:30PM EST on your local CBS affiliate, to be exact — and as always, we’re (almost certainly naïvely) hoping they won’t suck this time.
