Full disclosure? Before two minutes ago I wouldn't have known who Lil' Yachty was if was he sitting across from me at a food court trying to dunk his french fries in ketchup and inevitably missing the tray completely. Obviously that's all changed now, because...well...I don't encounter all that many people with bright pink dreadlocks. Still, I am not familiar with his music though - given the current state of hip hop - I would venture to guess he sounds a lot like a low budget 'Future'. Myself? I'm more of a fan of older artists that were attaching 'Lil' to the front of their rap name when it was still cool, so excuse me if I am wrong for assuming that Lil' Yachty is not someone with staying power in the music industry.
More importantly, this guy has to lose his black card, right? As a white male I am fairly certain that I'm not allowed to be the one to officially apprehend it, but I would like to let this blog serve as a notice to the NAACP that there is some African American imposter roaming the streets disparaging their culture. I don't believe in the "either ya sling crack rock or ya gotta wicked jump shot" mantra (R.I.P. Biggie), but I think it's fair to expect rappers to attempt dunks without looking like a toddler that's being held up just a littttttle too far away from a full size rim by their guardian. I don't know what the bare minimum for being able to retain your 'blackness' is, but it's got to be more than the athletic abortion I just witnessed.
