This year, FACT TV’s Bryan McKay, Claire Lobenfeld and John Twells packed up and headed to Austin, Texas for South By Southwest 2016 and talked to some of the festival’s most exciting artists.
Atlanta’s Lil Yachty is a polarizing force in rap right now. He’s popular to the point of being ubiquitous, but the young rapper’s fusion of Makonnen and Lil B’s free associating slurs and Future’s Auto-Tuned croon has old schoolers weeping all over their AF1s.
FACT caught up with Yachty at this year’s SXSW to talk about his rapid rise to fame and his obsession with Call of Duty, which he plays online with fans.
LiL Yachty’s new mixtape, Lil Boat is out now.
