Sugar Club continues on a roll of top-tier international artists, proudly presenting another debut in Thailand, this time the ground-breaking US Hip Hop star Lil Yachty, live on Wednesday 13th in Bangkok.
Everybody’s talking about the lil’ boat from Atlanta, and if you look him up it’s easy to see why. The 19-year-old rapper cuts a striking figure with his beaded braids, colorful outfits, and he doesn’t fit the stereotype - “I hate clubs. I don’t drink or smoke”. Suffice to say Lil Yachty has plenty of personality.
In less than 3 years he’s skyrocketed to become one of the most talked-about acts in Hip Hop, scoring two hit singles from his Summer Songs EP, a raft of high-profile guest features & remixes, a modeling gig for Yeezus himself, plus a feature in the coveted XXL Freshman Class of 2016.
Yachty’s music bangs without a game plan, relying on intuition instead of a formula. He’ll rap over a flipped Rugrats instrumental one minute, and a trap beat the next. Yachty’s approach has earned him criticism from some of Rap’s old guard, some suggesting he represents a degeneration for the genre. But Yachty’s only interested in representing him flavour, spreading positivity, and getting rich from work that excites him.
