Lil Yachty is in the co-director's chair for his latest video.

Redd is fresh off the release of his debut album Life's a Trip, which comes complete with appropriately psychedelia-influenced cover art. A video for the album's long-teased opener "Together/Bigger Than Satan," including a should-be-obvious Marilyn Manson nod in its title, arrived last month:
Yachty, meanwhile, recently broke down Lil Boat 2 in extended detail with Rob Markman for Genius. During the 45-minute discussion, Yachty explained what he feels is his lane and pointed to the importance of opening up a dialogue between older voices who are critical of younger artists. "That's what I be trying to do, bro," he said. "Not even as much as, like, I'm not even trying to be no lyrical rapper. I know my lane. I just be trying to bridge certain . . . because I was once that kid, you know, [who would say] 'Fuck them older n****s.'"
With his upcoming EP, due later this year, Yachty is promising "real slaps." A title for the project has not been announced.
