Lil Yachty hits the studio for “Cortex” visual
The hard-hitting cut sees production from Cash Cobain.
Clearly, Lil Yachty isn’t wasting much time cooking up some new tunes for his fans to enjoy. This week, he blesses us with “Cortex,” which sees the Atlanta rapper eschewing his melodic style for more hard-hitting street fare over drill-esque production courtesy of Cash Cobain:
“Niggas is not really killers, I seen ‘em shoot up, they treat beef like heroin, everyone wanna be kings, but niggas too soft, see, me, I got pharaoh skin, we took the drive, needed Wock’ for the low, had to do us a call in Carrollton, my niggas quick to reassemble your wig, I nicknamed him Tae ‘cause he arrogant/”
Shot by go-to videographer Ari Mairena-Dannon, the accompanying clip sees Yachty in the studio, flanked by crewmembers smoking weed, enjoy a meal, dancing to the song in question, and other activities common while in the midst of a recording session. Also notable — the message from Yachty left in the video’s description, which confirms what he’s currently in the studio for:
“right now I’m working on 4-5 projects.. I promise to give y’all a shit load of music this year…. rock outttttt.”
Last year, Yachty blessed his fans with his fourth studio album Lil Boat 3, which saw 19 cuts and appearances from Tierra Whack, A$AP Rocky, Tyler, The Creator, Future, Mike WiLL Made-It, Drake, DaBaby, Lil Keed, Young Thug, and Lil Durk. The project did moderately well commercially, peaking at number 14 on the Billboard 200 thanks to 30,000 first week album equivalent units sold. Months after its initial drop, a deluxe version of the LP — titled Lil Boat 3.5 — made landfall with eight more songs and additional contributions from Playboi Carti, Lil Baby, Vince Staples, and more.
Fans can press play on Lil Yachty’s “Cortex” video below, and keep an eye out for more releases soon.
