      i-D meets: lil yachty

      Lil Yachty is the self confessed 'King of the Teens' making waves across all types of social media, counting Frank Ocean, Skepta and Charli XCX as fans. i-D Meets the red-braided, boat obsessed rapper and artist who just "wanted to be a superstar", to make sense of all the hype. Hailing from Atlanta, Yachty goes against everything we thought we knew about hip hop. Here Yacthy talks us through his personal image, digs into the UK's finest offering of snacks, and tells us the importance of originality. It's all just boats, water, and being swag!
