  • Lil Yachty - Keep Sailing (Film)

    1,245,647 views 2 months ago
    “I was probably the popularest kind on campus, but in the worst way,” Lil Yachty says partway through #KeepSailing, a new film directed by Petra Collins and produced by The FADER. “I was a laughingstock. I was a joke because of my hair. Being in college really let me know I don’t want to live a regular life. I want to be rich, I want to be a celebrity, I want to be famous. I want to have this hair and people don’t laugh, they get excited.”

    Filmed in the Atlanta suburbs where the red-headed Lil Yachty grew up, this 14-minute film — sort of like a docu-musical — is a gorgeous and goofy look at his rise. It’s full of surreal reenactments, boat trips, and interviews with Lil Yachty’s mom, his uncle Darnell Boat, his go-to producers Burberry Perry and Earl, and all his good friends in the Sailing Team.

    Plus! There are musical performances of two new songs — “So Many People” and “All In” — both from Lil Yachty's new mixtape Summer Songs 2, which comes out tonight, July 19, at midnight EST. The kid had a dream and he made it real.
