Hear Lil Yachty’s ‘Lost Files’ EP With Unreleased Songs
Lil Yachty has had quite the week. Last Tuesday (Aug. 23), he celebrated his 19th birthday with a show in Atlanta, bringing our special guests Lil B, Lil Uzi Vert and Offset of Migos, posing for picture back stage. Then, on Thursday, an interview he did with Billboard revealed that he couldn't name five songs from either Biggie nor 2Pac, inciting rage damn near across the entire hip-hop landscape. He and fellow 2016 XXL Freshman Anderson .Paak exchanged some words via Twitter on the matter over the weekend.
Now, with those comments still fresh on people's minds comes a nod of sort to another rap legend, as Yachty has released an EP titled Lost Files with Digital Nas. The four track project contains previously unreleased material with K$UPREME featured on the intro. Listen to the EP above via SoundCloud, while below, Yachty has let another track loose, "Guap" with yet another 2016 Freshman, 21 Savage.
On his closing verse, 21 raps, "I’m riding round the city with a sick, make this motherfucker fish tail / I get surgical with that pump, nigga call me Denzel / Training Day, I just might hop on the plane today / My jewelry on but I’m plain today / Money on me, it might rain today / Give a fuck what these haters say." That last line may as well double for Yachty's attitude toward his recent detractors. In response to .Paak, he wrote, "It’s funny how people feel like you HAVE to like something just cause everybody else does."
