WHAT IT IS: At 19 years old, Lil Yachty and his whimsical brand of “boat music,” along with his signature beaded red braids, have taken the Internet and hip-hop by storm. His mind-blowing “1 Night” video went viral, attracting 40m views to date. His first headlining tour sold out in minutes. He modeled for Kanye West during his Yeezy Season 3 event at MSG, became the face of the Puma x Pink Dolphin line, shut down Times Square and starred alongside NBA champion and All-Star Lebron James in a Sprite ad. His first mixtape, Lil Boat, is approaching 300m streams, and “1 Night” is nearing platinum certification.
