Though he’s been popping up everywhere from Leaf’s NYC girl gang to PARTYNEXTDOOR tracks to a PUMA capsule collection, this remains the summer of Lil Yachty first and foremost for his immersive new mixtape Summer Songs 2. It remains his most definitive statement yet, even when he’s sharing the mic. He was particularly generous on “All In,” a single that showcased literally his entire “sailing crew” in featured guest spots – a feat they repeated in the just-released music video.
Hilariously riffing on The Brady Bunch, the video does indeed showcase every member of Lil Yachty’s crew like they’re one big happy family. The retro-feel is heightened thanks to director Petra Collins, who shot the entire video on old film-stock. And though the sailing crew starts out in the confines of a school bus, their infectious energy soon brings their nonstop yacht party to the streets, resulting in one hell of a showstopper.
Summer Songs 2 is available on the iTunes store.
