Lil Yachty?! The appearance of Lil Boat in this new Sprite ad will probably either have you smiling or shaking your head, depending on what decade of rap music you grew up with. The 2016 XXL Freshman and man behind songs like “1 Night” and “Broccoli” is huge among current rap fans who grew up watching LeBron win rings and not so popular with people who grew up during the golden age of hip hop, when Michael Jordan was winning them.
So just like LeBron in the ad, I’m not going to tell you to watch the commercial, the behind the scenes of the commercial or watch and compare the following cypher videos, but I am asking.
