Lil Yachty gave hip-hop fans something to smile about on Monday, March 9, releasing a joyous new song and hilarious video, "Oprah's Bank Account," featuring DaBaby and Drake.
In celebration of the fourth anniversary of his debut mixtape, Lil Boat, as well as the two-year anniversary of Lil Boat 2, Yachty hopped on Instagram during the early afternoon to tease the surprise collaboration. It's possible this is the first single off Yachty's upcoming album, Lil Boat 3.
Directed by Julien Christian Lutz, aka Director X, the mastermind behind the videos for Drake's "Hotline Bling" and Drake and Future's "Life Is Good," the video stars Yachty impersonating Oprah on The Boprah Show, a parody of The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Rocking a full pink getup, Yachty bounces around a set filled with screaming female fans while a lightly auto-tuned hook fills the speakers. "Diamond in the rough, you look as good as Oprah's bank account," he sings.
Drake then pops out as Yachty's first talk show guest and offers a quick verse, referencing his recent trip to the Diamond District in New York.
Yachty does his best Oprah parody and asks for Drake's thoughts on a few lighthearted topics, including:
His Beard & Pierced Ears: "It's really just about reaching your full LSC, your light skin capability... I'm up there on Mount Lightmore."
His Puckered Lips Pose on Instagram: "I'm just doing what comes o nat to me, you know? Just o natural."
Mumble Rap & New Rappers: "At the forefront of that movement of music that should be forgotten about is 'Little Yachy.' That guy is just an absolute innovator of music that should never be referenced or heard by human beings again." 🤣🤣
Chauffeured by Instagram comedian Druski, Boprah also heads over to DaBaby's mansion in the woods. They walk around for a bit and she interviews him about his catch phrase, "Let's gooo."
