Lil Yachty is definitely stirring up some buzz for his debut album, ‘Teenage Emotions,‘ after debuting the cover art one week before last night’s release; featuring a plethora of controversial elements; like that which included two guys lip locking.
While he’s previously been un-apologetically open on the topic before; Bossie Badazz revisits his thoughts on media and its artists pushing a gay agenda; as he posted and deleted: “That’s two boys kissing on this album cover bro smh wtf.”
Futhermore; in an interview with TMZ’s RAQ RANTS, the Baton Rouge crooner truthfully addressed his comments on the media forcing children to be gay.
Prior to the interview, he told VladTV:
“They’re putting it in our culture. They’re putting it everywhere. Gay stuff is everywhere.”
With Raquel, he attempted to clear the air, affirming that he doesn’t hate anyone.
People think I have something against the gay community, but I don’t at all,” said Boosie. “I just said what I felt about how they forcing the gay community on kids at such a young age. That’s what I was saying, and the gay community lashed out at me saying this and that, but I have nothing against the gay community … I don’t regret saying nothing, because whatever I say I can say again. I’ll tell any gay, I’ll tell any straight person the same thing. At the same time, I want them to know I don’t have nothing against the gay community.”
Irregardless of his comments, Yachty is unbothered, especially following the release of his debut album, featuring 21 tracks; and vocals from: Kamaiyah; Diplo; Migos; YG; and more.
Though the controversial cover art has people talking, he admits he has a real, deeper meaninge behind it.
“[Like the album, it’s] capturing all aspects of teenagers and what they go through: turnt, heartbreak, happiness, sadness.”

Really hope that my fans enjoy this project. Cuz that's all that matters to me. I worked on this for over a year now. Just so my fans could feel the vibes. I didn't make this shit for anybody else. I don't expect everybody to like it.. or love it. I don't expect anybody to post my cover or none of that. But as long as I keep reading messages of how much people fucked with it and appreciate it. Then my job is done. I'm not trying to compete with anybody… My mind is far to far else where to even try to level with another artist. I love everyone who supports me. And I see the fake through the industry. Stay positive. Teenage Emotions in stores now and streaming everywhere. ⛵️
