It’s Lil Yachty’s second full mixtape, and it comes as a follow-up to the popular “Lil Boat” mixtape released in March. “Summer Songs 2” also comes after the Atlanta rapper was recognized as a 2016 XXL Freshman of the Year, further cementing his presence in rap. “Lil Boat” boosted Yachty to the mainstream with tracks like “Minnesota,” a song that sums up the rapper’s light-hearted and fun-filled style.
“Summer Songs 2” builds on Yachty’s sound as well as adding more traditional rapping from the soon-to-be 19-year-old. His catchy melodies and bubbly production shine through on the tape, elements that are a staple of his popularity and fans’ enjoyment.
