Lil Yachty’s Awesome New Album Cover Is Here To Help You ‘Love Yourself’

‘If you have vitiligo or if you’re gay or whatever it is, embrace yourself’

Lil Yachty, self-professed “King of the Teens,” has announced his long-awaited debut album, and it proves he’s here for every single one of you (but especially teens).

The mumble-rap poster boy has unveiled the very colorful and extremely inclusive cover of Teenage Emotions, which features him surrounded by a diverse group of young people in movie theater–style seats. There’s a girl with a green mohawk, an albino guy, and even two men making out in the upper left corner. In the center is the red-braided rapper, smiling with a rainbow grill and rocking light pink denim.

Yachty hopped on Instagram Live to discuss the album cover, saying, “In high school, as a teenager growing up, you’re surrounded by so many different types of people. There are so many types of people in the world who practice different religions or do whatever they want to do. It’s basically like... don’t be afraid to do you, to be you. If you have vitiligo or if you’re gay or whatever it is, embrace yourself. Love yourself. Be happy, positive.”

The back cover of Teenage Emotions, meanwhile, features an iced-out watch and pepperoni pizza, the food nearest and dearest to Lil Boat’s heart. It also reveals the full, 21-song tracklist, which includes collaborations with Migos, YG, Diplo, and more. Check it out below, and look out for the album when it arrives May 26.
