Lil Yachty appears as “Boprah,” a satirical talk show host in his latest video.
After a bit of a break, Lil Yachty jumps back into the industry with a hilarious video for his new song “Oprah’s Bank Account.” This is Yachty’s latest release since appearing on Zaytoven’s A-Team project that dropped last month.
In the visual featuring Drake and DaBaby, the Quality Control rapper appears as Boprah, a talk show host. During the first segment of the show Drake chats with him about LSC or “light-skinned capability” which entails his beard and his signature pose in his selfies. The satire continues when Yachty asks Drake what he thinks about the new generation of mumble rappers. To which Drake says, “I embrace it.” He adds that he “loves all the little ditties, all the little jingles that the kids are doing.”
Later in the clip, DaBaby appears as himself in a lavish home where he’s being interviewed by Yachty. When speaking of his success as a rapper he shared he makes every song like an ongoing song because “you never have to make another song again.”
In an interview with Complex, Lil Yachty pointed out that Lizzo was supposed to be in the original song. “It’s so crazy because I originally wanted to put Lizzo on it,” he said. “I sent it to her, and I don’t want to say she didn’t like it, because she never got back to me on it, which was cool. I understand people are busy.” Drake popped up on the single after Yachty posted a clip of it on his fake Instagram account.
Later in the feature, he expressed that “Oprah’s Bank Account” will set the tone for his upcoming album Lil Boat 3 which will be out soon. He also shared, “My album’s done. I haven’t spoken on it yet, but it’s coming. It’s ending the trilogy to my Lil Boat series.”
