Lil Yachty just surprised fans with a flood of new music on SoundCloud, including a fresh collaboration with 21 Savage.

Late at night, on a SoundCloud page named ‘Concrete Leak System,’ the Atlanta artist released 14 new tracks. Among this collection, the standout piece is the crossover “Part of the Plan” featuring 21 Savage, along with another notable collaboration with Vory.

Yachty later clarified on X (formerly Twitter) that these tracks are part of an official release, not leaks, putting to rest any confusion.

However, over the weekend, Lil Yachty stirred some controversy. After criticizing the current state of Hip Hop, he was seen in the studio with viral rapper Ian. Fans were quick to call him out for hypocrisy, given his previous statements decrying the lack of creativity and originality in the genre.

A video circulating on social media showed the duo seemingly working on new music, humorously set to the theme song from Jeopardy!. This did not sit well with some fans, who recalled Yachty’s past remarks like, ‘Hip Hop is in a terrible place. The state of Hip Hop right now is a lot of imitation. It’s a lot of quick, low-quality music being put out. It’s a lot less risk-taking, it’s a lot less originality… People are too safe now. Everyone is so safe. I’d rather take the risk than take the L.’

Critics didn’t hold back. One user wrote, ‘Nvm I don’t really mess with him anymore. This guy said Hip Hop is in a terrible state and then went to do a song with a colonizer [three crying emojis] we’re cooked.’ Another said, ‘Lmfaoo y’all ain’t got no dignity man it’s so sad to see.’

Ian, a 19-year-old rapper from Dallas, has been gaining attention thanks to his viral hit “Figure It Out.” His style, influenced by the likes of Yeat, Playboi Carti, and Gucci Mane, has made him a polarizing figure, characterized by an unapologetic suburban persona rapping about the usual themes of money and drugs.

As of now, Lil Yachty hasn’t addressed the backlash regarding his studio session with the internet sensation.

Lil Yachty’s latest SoundCloud spree has thrilled fans with new music, but his actions continue to stir the pot in the hip hop community.
