The latest artist to try his hand at a live stream concert, Lil Yachty partnered with Headliner for an exclusive show dubbed "The Night is Young." He brought out several guests during the hour or so gig like Tee Grizzley, Mac Demarco, Bhad Bhabie (?) and Taco.
One of the best moments of the otherwise odd and underwhelming experience was when Yachty revealed unseen footage of him and Juice WRLD in the studio reciting their lyrics to an unreleased collab. He and Juice have one standout release together already in "Yacht Club."
Plus, Lil Boat dropped a pair of tie-dye T-shirts in collaboration with Chinatown Market as well as a throw rug showing a chubby version of his face accessorized with his signature braids and red beads.
Later, he performed a remix of the classic "Reese's Puffs Rap" along with fan-favorites like "Coffin," "Wock In Stock" and the Playboi Carti-assisted "Get Dripped." (Carti didn't grace the event with his presence, unfortunately.)
While Boat didn't add much energy overall, the surrounding psychedelic visuals seemed to help keep the audience interested, judging by the reactions in the real-time fan group chat.
Reese's Puffs isn't the only brand to tap Yachty for a reimagined theme song. The upcoming 'Saved By The Bell' reboot on NBC's Peacock streaming service received an upbeat treatment from the Atlanta artist. "When I wake up in the morning / Alarm gives out a warning / I don't think I'll ever make it on time," he sings.
