New Music: Lil Yachty – ‘X-Men’

Move over, Wolverine. Before dropping his debut album Teenage Emotions, Lil Yachty unleashes his Evander Griim-assisted single “X-Men.”

Jumping into the world of Storm and Cyclops, Lil Boat raps about his haters. “You shouldn’t want beef from the start,” he raps. “Everywhere I go, I leave marks / All of you ni**as is marks / You’re sticky and dirty like farts.”

Meanwhile, Evander handles the chorus. “Iced out all my friends,” he brags. “Call us X-Men.”

Speaking of the song, Lil Boat told Beats 1 that he’s simply “talking shit” on the track with Evander. “He’s a good guy and I like working with genuine and good people.”

Fans can expect an “X-Men” video to drop soon, according to Yachty. “This video is going to be crazy,” he said. “The plot, the concept I came up with is insane…My whole inspiration for this video was Kendrick’s two recent videos for ‘D.N.A.’ and ‘HUMBLE.’ They’re not like that, but how creative and dope those were, it made me [say], ‘I’ve gotta take this to the next level. I really gotta do some fire shit.”

“X-Men” follows Teenage Emotion’s past releases like “Bring It Back” and “Peek a Boo.” Featuring Migos, YG, Kamaiyah, and Diplo, Lil Boat’s debut album is due May 26.
