Video: Lil Yachty feat. Migos - 'Peek a Boo'
It’s a good Friday for Lil Yachty fans. The self-proclaimed King of Teens has just unleashed two new tracks, starting with his Migos-assisted “Peek a Boo.”
Not to be confused with Migos’ 2014 “Peek a Boo,” which dropped on No Label II, this track was produced by Ricky Racks and it comes with a mostly black-and-white video.
Directed by Millicent Hailes with creative direction and concept by Yachty himself, “Peek a Boo” finds a shirtless Boat surrounded by gorgeous models with pasties on. Meanwhile, Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff add their energetic flair to the artistically-shot visual.
“I know it was some speculation ’bout who the one, but we invented the dabbin’,” raps Takeoff. “Fuck it, we just let ’em have it.”
Boat has received some criticism for this song, due to one of its ill-conceived punchlines. “Aiming at you and your fellows,” he raps. “My new bitch yellow / She blow that dick like a cello.”
Boat’s unfortunate error — mistaking a cello for a wind instrument — has become a point of many barbs about the track since its release.
Lil Yachty: "She blow that dick like a cello"
Me, an intellectual: ..well actually a cello is a string instrument and can't be blown

Lil Boat responded to the criticism on Friday. Replying to a fan who informed him that “you can’t blow a cello bro,” he shot back with, “I KNOW.”

But “Peek a Boo” isn’t the only new Yachty track. In fact, he also unleashed “Harley,” a motorcycle-inspired cut produced by K. Swisha.
“Late night with the report like Colbert,” he raps. “Love her iced out like a Kid Cuisine / Lil Boat in the magazine / Big bro keep the magazines / Charged up like an alkaline / Bet she feel dick in her spine.”
Yachty is currently prepping the release of his debut album, Teenage Emotions.
