Lil Yachty turned just 19 yesterday; think about that for one second. In celebration of his birthday, the rapper released some new merch not for Lil Yachty, Lil Boat, or even Darnell Boat. Instead, the merch stars Miles Parks McCollum (Lil Yachty’s birth name).
Lil Yachty released a T-shirt in four different colorways with, presumably, his senior yearbook picture captioned with the phrase: “B4 DA BOAT.” The tee comes in black, blue, red, and mustard yellow. You can purchase the merch for $35 while listening to the four new tracks released alongside the tees. “This is Lil Boat, it’s my motherfucking birthday” he raps at the top of the first track. “So, I made this mix of fucking old shit, new shit.” He’s talking about the music, but the concept could easily be applied to the merch, too.
When you click over to the shop, you’ll also find Yachty’s previously released merch. The selection’s bright colors and maritime themes really helps it stand out in the stampede of merch 2016 has welcomed.
