Lil Yachty’s Latest Single, “Strike (Holster)” Has Arrived: Stream
Lil Yachty’s Latest Single Strike (Holster) Has Arrived Stream – 2023 has been a fantastic year for music so far already, especially in the realm of hip-hop and R&B. Just one of the many artists contributing to that is Lil Yachty, who ended January with the arrival of his featureless Let’s Start Here. album. The 14-track record finds the SoundCloud star feeling more experimental than ever before, a trend he continues on his latest offering, “Strike (Holster).”
The single arrived in time for New Music Friday (April 7), and was teased by Yachty on social media earlier this week. Unsurprisingly, his good friend Drake even gave him a co-sign while promoting his own contribution for this weekend, “Search & Rescue.” An accompanying visual has yet to drop, though HypeBae notes that Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett was the first to tease Lil Boat’s with a music video preview.
While Let’s Start Here saw Yachty exploring the sounds of psychedelic, ’70s rock, “Strike (Holster)” seemingly takes the rapper back to his roots. The single comes via Quality Control and Motown Records and finds the 25-year-old lyricizing over production by Teddy Walton and Aaron Bow. “You know that shit look real when you already do / You know the guys sip on drank ’til it’s early, yeah,” his first verse begins. “All this Bottega shit I shop at, Berlin just did / Drank man had cracked the seal, I begged him to sell it too,” Boat later adds.
It remains unclear in the latest release is a prelude to an upcoming project, or simply the Georgia native proving to his long-time fans that he still has the rap skills they previously revered him for.
