March 14, 2016

Atlanta rapper Yakki sounds damn near drunk when he gets to the hook on "Pockets," a lean new track debuting today on The FADER in anticipation of Gangsta Grillz-hosted tape Yakkistick, coming soon. Recounting the days when his pockets were empty, he sings dizzily from his present heights: Now I walk around with blue hundreds in my pocket.

Meanwhile, his collaborator, 21 Savage, pulls up spitting similar tale: I remember having nothing, I was fucked up, I was struggling/ watch my momma work a double, got that work and made it double, he raps. Now I walk around with a hundred in my pocket, all my niggas with me, they got hundreds in they pockets.

"Everyone featured on this tape came from and/or understands the struggle, the struggle to want to make it out of the ghetto by way of hip-hop," Yakki wrote in an email to The FADER, explaining that "Pockets" sets the tone for Yakkistick. "I'm from a part of Atlanta called Oakland City and everyday is a struggle."

Listen to "Pockets" below. Yakkistick is coming soon.
