The Main Idea



Artist: Lil Yachty ft. Blueberry Perry

Label/Agency: QC

"Last month, Lil Yachty capitalized on his current moment in the spotlight by dropping Lil Boat The Mixtape. The first song after the intro was "Wanna Be Us," an easy-going track with a triumphant hook: All of them niggas they know us/ Them niggas, they wanna be us. Burberry Perry produced "Wanna Be Us"—along with several other tunes on Lil Boat The Mixtape—and he also rapped a verse on the song.

The clip for the track arrived today directed by JMP and John Rawl. It finds Yachty and Perry rapping and dabbing in a scenic location as the sun sets behind them. Watch above."  - FADER


"Lil Yachty continues to make waves, following up the release of his mixtape Lil Boat. He's about to be a full-blown internet phenom, if he isn't already considered one. The red-haired, soft-spoken rapper from Atlanta teams up with his frequent collaborator Burberry Perry (he's also Yachty's go-to producer) for the music video "Wanna Be Us."

The visuals are directed by JMP and John Rawl, and they find the two eccentric artists hiking up a mountain as the sun begins to set, making for some beautiful imagery.

Yachty recently stopped by our office for an episode of On The Come Up, catch that below if you missed it."  - HotNewHipHop
