Lil Yachty Is A City Girl

What are you all going to say now?

In an interview with Kerwin Frost, Lil Yachty revealed that he wrote City Girls’ smash hit “Act Up.”

“I wrote the whole song except for JT’s last verse. But everything that everyone is singing and all. I wrote the whole thing.” […]

“I just thought like them. I know them personally and I know what women like to hear,” he explained. “I was like, ‘What’s some raunchy shit?’ So before I went in the booth, I said, ‘No homo y’all.’ Because all my boys was in the room. And I started saying just crazy shit. But I came out and I was like, ‘Y’all watch, this is about to blow up.’”

This has shocked the internet and even had buddy trending for most of the day. Of course, the song is all about bussing’ it open and getting over on men. So naturally, it was a surprise to some that a man would write it, despite the long history of men writing rap lyrics from women’s perspectives.

Still, the reactions are absolutely priceless…
