Lil Yachty’s new single, “Oprah’s Bank Account,” featuring Drake and DaBaby, is now streaming. Lil Boat also dropped a video paying homage to The Oprah Winfrey Show, where he plays a wannabe Oprah called Boprah. Yachty originally wanted Lizzo on the track, but says once he sent it to her, she got quiet.
While most folks had a laugh at Lil Yachty wearing a dress and a wig to parody Oprah in his video for “Oprah’s Bank Account,” some folks were offended.
One Twitter user suggested that Lil Boat fell off so hard that he now has to resort to wearing a dress to sell records. Yachty checked them when he clapped back, “It’s just supposed to be entertaining… It ain’t even that deep. Y’all so in denial with y’all masculinity [that stuff] like this bothers y’all… Relax.”
Another follower tried to tell the Atlanta rapper, “You are Bi. Dressed up as a damn woman you done let the black community down.” That critique just confused Boat, who responded with a picture of NBA player Russell Westbrook with a puzzled look on his face.
