Lil Yachty has dropped a stylish visual for “Plastic,” his Michigan Boy Boat cut with Icewear Vezzo and Rio Da Yung OG.
Over the track’s emotional piano-led production, the trio deliver rugged verses touching on street life. “Me and Vezzo don’t do double cups, yeah, we triple stackin’ it / Lucky I came in with my bitch, them hoes, I would’ve cracked ‘em / Last n***a speak on my name, a random person jacked him / If I die, I’ll be on CNN like Michael Jackson,” Yachty spits.
The black-and-white music video was directed by Ethan Iverson and depicts the rappers with their crews, performing the song in large rooms, studio settings, and a strip club, as they send dollar bills flying.
The clip also ends with a bittersweet moment, as Rio comments on his incarceration. “Don’t forget about me, ‘cos I’m coming back, goddamn it,” he says at the video’s conclusion, as its closing screen reads: “Free Rio Da Yung OG.” The rapper is currently serving a five year sentence for gun and substance-related charges.
Besides “Plastic,” Michigan Boy Boat also featured Tee Grizzley, Sada Baby, and Babyface Ray. Prior to the mixtape, Yachty also dropped the single “Cortex,” in which he shared that he was working on “four to five projects.”
The mixtape continued Yachty’s admiration for the Wolverine State. In a music video for his February track “Royal Rumble,” he brought several Michigan-based rappers into the fold, including RMC Mike, Krispylife Kidd, as well as Icewear Vezzo himself.
Last week, Icewear Vezzo dropped his latest single “Choppy Talk”, having signed to his hometown’s Motown Records last October. Rio Da Yung OG, on the other hand, dropped the Bag Talk project last month.
