Life’s been pretty rad this year for Lil Yachty, who’s quickly become one of the buzziest names in rap. Now, fresh off a Grammy nomination for his and D.R.A.M.’s monster hit “Broccoli,” Lil Boat’s unleashed an explosive new song with A$AP Ferg.
“Terminator” finds Yachty going harder than usual, trading bars with a reliably energetic Ferg (who dubs himself the “Ferginator” here) over a glitchy, Maaly Raw–crafted beat. Yachty admitted on Twitter that he was sick while recording the song, but props to him for powering through to give us an explosive — yet slightly ominous — new banger.
“Terminator” arrives just over a week after Lil Yachty instated a judgment-free zone with the shimmering new song “Judgement Free.” The Atlanta native debuted the song on Ebro’s Beats 1 show, declaring, “The last time I checked, I was the one promoting positivity... I’m out here trying to promote positivity on a global scale.” Hear that, Shia LaBeouf?
