WATCH: Lil Yachty’s ‘Boat Show’ features Tyler, The Creator, Taz Taylor, Freddie Gibbs, more

In the latest episode of Lil Yachty’s YouTube vlog series “The Boat Show,” the Georgia-based rapper is seen arm-in-arm with Internet Money’s Taz Taylor for a locked-in studio session.

According to Taz, Boat is in his bag when he’s actively using his voice in his music. Since Yachty’s early success was mainly driven by his use of autotune stacks and feel-good melodies on Lil Boat and Summer Songs, Yachty and Taz got to work finding a happy medium between his heavy bars and emotional hooks.

Throughout the session, Taylor is seen pushing Yachty every step of the way, questioning each of his decisions, remaining blunt about the music he’s making and the results that come with it.

Not wanting to fully depart from rapping — stemming from his homage to Detroit hip-hop on his latest mixtape Michigan Boy Boatthe video showcases a slew of unreleased songs made during the session, featuring Internet Money producers in Cxdy, Rio Levya and others.

Internet Money has been widely praised for their ability to create hits that cut through the mainstream, as Yachty seems to want to revert back to his melodic ways in some capacity.

Releasing the harmonious, lo-fi pop track “Love Music” on Friday, it seems as though the single and the video fall in line with Yachty’s supposed reveal of a new era — showcasing a revitalized, complete and melodic sound for the QC rapper. Unreleased music continuously played in the background, as Yachty is seen working with Tyler, The Creator, Swae Lee, Freddie Gibbs and Lil Tecca throughout the 30-minute vlog.

If this is any inkling for Yachty dropping something soon, there’s plenty to be excited about. With Taz and Internet Money in his corner — along with Tyler, Tecca, Swae Lee and Gibbs — expect big name features and loads of melodic Boat for whatever new project Yachty has set sail.
