Lil Yachty has shared a video for a fresh track called “Cortex.”
The Cash Cobain-produced track is built around a sample of the French band Cortex’s 1975 song, “Huit Octobre 1971.” The Troupeau Bleu track was famously used by MF DOOM on his 2004 single, “One Beer,” and has also been sampled by Wiz Khalifa and Tyler, the Creator.
On “Cortex,” Yachty flips the track for a drill-inspired sound and spits braggadocious bars. “Ain’t nobody gon’ check me, hm / Two hunnid thousand, I spend on a neck piece / Fuck my opps, I’m deadly / When I die, hope they put on my tombstone / ‘All I wanted was respect’/ Concrete Boy Boat, I ain’t no hoe, and that’s on my set,” he raps.
Filmed with a 360-degree camera, the accompanying video shows Yachty and his friends wrapping up a recording session in the studio. In the clip’s description on YouTube, the Atlanta native teased forthcoming music.
“Right now I’m working on 4-5 projects,” he wrote. “I promise to give y’all a shit load of music this year…. rock outttttt.”
Last year, Yachty released his most recent projects, Lil Boat 3 and its extended version, Lil Boat 3.5. In February, he dropped visuals for two tracks from the latter project: “Asshole” and “In My Stussy.” That same month, he joined forces with Kodak Black for “Hit Bout it.”
