Lil Yachty explain to Desus & Mero that rappers flaunt pretend money.
Lil Yachty's one of the most successful new rappers in the game right now, whether you like it or not. He's gone from a Soundcloud rapper to multiple endorsement deals and a record deal with one of the biggest labels in hip hop right now. While he's faced criticisms for his music and his opinions on hip hop, he recently tweeted that he could rap circles around 75% of the new generation. He explained to Desus & Mero that he's not aiming to be the best rapper alive and it's mainly due to the fact that he's rich.
Lil Yachty was the latest "illustrious" guest on Desus & Mero's late night VICELAND show. The conversation veered into Yachty speaking about how he constantly feels slept on as a rapper in the game. While he doesn't really care, nor is he aiming to be the best rapper alive, he did say that he's content with being rich.
"I'm not the best rappper. I'm not trying to be the best rapper. I'm rich as fuck." He said. "Rappers are not rich bro. Like, they not. It's all fake. It's a facade, bro. I'm genuinely, near and dear truly rich. I don't give a fuck about none of that shit... I'm just happy, bro."
The rapper then explained he truly knew he was rich when he went to cop a Bentley on a whim. He also revealed that he and the Migos one time spent $30K at Atlanta's Magic City. However, he admits that regardless of how rich you are, you'll still regret blowing that much at a strip club.
