Atlanta-born sensation Lil Yachty aka Miles Parks McCollum has released the video for”1Night,” a delight of a video that encapsulates a lot of the excitement he’s been generating as of late. Off of his “Lil Boat mixtape, the wavy single disarms misogynist lyrics (“I can’t love no bitch every single ho is trife”) with off-kilter and sedated beats, an irreverence perfectly expressed in a Glassface and Rahil-directed video that leans in on everyone’s current favorite art form–a mix of GIFs and memes; shout out to the crying Jordan face of course! One of rap’s cool kids, Yachty also includes a clip of his appearance in Kanye West’s Season 3 fashion presentation at Madison Square Garden.
The video comes on the heels of Yachty’s sold out performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (times change, they do!), followed up by a fan-crazed performance at SoHo boutique VFiles (shut down by cops), all of which are the perfect build up to his biggest gig yet as an opening act on Young Thug’s first national tour.
