His new album Lil Boat 3 is out this spring.

Lil Yachty first stormed rap with a mixture of catchy melodies, a loveable persona, and a total disregard for the chatter of naysayers. On Monday, the Atlanta rapper brought that vibe back in a big way with the music video for "Oprah's Bank Account," a new song featuring Drake and DaBaby. Yachty stars in the Director X-helmed clip as "Boprah" (perhaps a pun on "Boat," Yachty's nickname) and hosts a very special episode of his talk show with appearances from Drake and DaBaby.

The video succeeds not just because of Yachty's committed performance, but because each artist goes all in on making fun of themselves — Drake reveals his LSC (light-skinned capability), DaBaby skewers his notorious tendency to use the same flow over and over ("make every damn song like an ongoing song," he says. "You never have to make another song again,") while Yachty-as-Boprah endures Drake's skewering of mumble-rap, the genre Yachty pioneered. It's been awhile since Yachty commanded the charts, but the feel-goodness of "Oprah's Bank Account" makes the best case in a minute for his return. Check out the music video above.
