Lil Yachty surprised fans Tuesday night by dropping his own version of Tay- K‘s viral hit “The Race.” The track features the Teenage Emotions artist freestyling over the S. Diesel beat, while calling for Tay-K’s freedom. “It’s Young Boat, put a nigga in they place/Rich as f**k out the window, free Tay-K,” he raps. “First show I did I got less than 10K/Saw Tay-K, now he who he is today.”
Yachty is not the first to touch the track but he definitely did the beat justice. Lil Yachty’s take on the song is interesting considering the production actually sounds like something that Yachty could’ve used on one of his earlier mixtapes. Yachty is among a slew of other rappers, such as XXXTentacion, Lil Bibby, Trill Sammy and more who have also freestyled over this beat after Tay-K got locked up. While the song itself has gained buzz all over the internet, it’s unfortunate that he hasn’t been able to witness the success the song has been receiving as well as the success of his mixtape, Santana World. Tay-K has been imprisoned since late June after allegedly cutting off his ankle-monitor and fleeing from his home in Texas to New Jersey. While in New Jersey, he was later caught by the police and sent to prison.
