Lil Yachty Claps Back at Fan for Saying He ‘Imitated Detroit Rappers’ on ‘Michigan Boat Boy’

After another fan called out Yachty for signing four female versions of the Detroit rapper Veeze, as well as for imitating “Earl when he raps over Alchemist beats,” Lil Boat responded, “I signed one girl. U n***as who hide behind pop culture pictures just be sayin anything for likes and retweets…people act like the world is goin to shit when a n***a gives an opinion.”

Yachty’s comments arrive days after the rapper claimed “hip-hop is in a terrible place” during his conversation at Rolling Stone’s Musicians on Musicians event in Brooklyn, New York.

“The state of hip-hop right now is a lot of imitation,” Yachty shared. It’s a lot of quick, low-quality music being put out.“

He continued, “It’s a lot less risk-taking, it’s a lot less originality…People are too safe now. Everyone is so safe. I rather take the risk than take the L.”
