Rocking a pair of Nike Air Mags, noted old-school rap antagonist Lil Yachty kicked off his national, two-month-long Teenage Tour at The Bomb Factory in Dallas on Friday night.
In front of a crowd mostly consisting of his teenage peers, the 19-year-old made sure to throw a bunch of head nods Dallas’ way over the course of his headlining set, too. He brought Oak Cliff rapper Diego Money onto the stage at one point and also fulfilled a promise he’d been teasing on Twitter, performing live his remix of Diego Money’s close collaborator Arlington rapper Tay-K’s song, “The Race.”
“The Race,” it’s worth noting again, has become a massive viral hit in the wake of Tay-K being arrested by U.S. Marshals on capital murder charges in late June. Since news of his arrest began to spread, Tay_k has become something of a star in his own right in the world of up-and-coming rap stars. Before Lil Yachty gave his song shine on Friday, the also Atlanta-based Playboi Carti similarly rocked out to “The Race” while performing live in Dallas late last month.
