Lil Yachty linked up with fellow young upstarts 21 Savage and Sauce Walka for his new track “Drippin.” The song finds Sauce Walka starting things off, rapping “I’m dripping on these niggas, drip drop/This a real rolex, it don’t tick tock/Savager ride around the city with that glock.” Lil Yachty follows him up, and 21 Savage comes in to burn things down at the end with his trademark style of aggressive, gruff-voiced raps. Although it clocks in at a scant two minutes and 30 seconds, it’s more than enough time for each rapper to make their mark. The track features production from Dolan Beatz.
Lil Yachty has been on a roll ever since the release of his debut mixtape Lil Boat back in March, which racked up millions of plays on SoundCloud. Since then, he’s collaborated the likes of Post Malone (“Monte”), D.R.A.M. (“Broccoli”), Makonnen (“If You Down”), and even Kylie Jenner (“Beautiful Day”). Most notably, he showed up in the studio with Kanye West, Big Sean, Vic Mensa, Migos, and Tyler, the Creator during a recording session for Kanye’s upcoming album Turbo Grafx 16. With all this exposure and a litany of famous faces in hip-hop lining up to work with him, it seems that the red-haired Atlanta rapper has discovered some sort of winning formula. Whether that can translate into wider success beyond his viral fanbase remains to be seen, but clearly Yachty is making the most of it.
