Lil Yachty's Teenage Emotions was released last week, May 26. To coincide with the release he sat down with Genius to break down the lyrics of recent single "Peek A Boo." During the conversation, Lil Boat conceded that the line "My new bitch yellow / she blow that dick like a cello," isn't entirely correct when it comes to musical instruments and how they are played.
"OK, let's stop for a second," Yachty said mounting his defense. "Before you come at me, I'ma let you know. I'ma blame my A&R. Because he listened to that song many times and he allowed me to say that. I guess for a second I thought a cello was a woodwind instrument and it is not. And nobody ever said shit. ... Nobody ever pulled up a pic and said, "Hey man. I don't know if you know what this is, but it ain't that." ... I fucked up. I thought Squidward played the cello. He don't. That's a flute. I fucked up."
The error was picked up on by @BRANDONWARDELL and blew up on Twitter.

Spongebob Squarepants fans in the comments were then quick to tell Yachty that Squidward actually plays clarinet.
Yachty promptly noted this and making it clear he now understands the many different instruments of the world.
