Lil Yachty Channels “Boprah” For “Oprah’s Bank Account” Ft. Drake & Da Baby [VIDEO]
Grammy nominee Lil Yachty takes things to a new level with the release of his latest visual for “Oprah’s Bank Account.” On Monday (March 9th), Lil Yachty (real name Miles McCollum), 22, pulled a double duty starring role as himself and remixed daytime talk show host ‘Boprah’ in his new nine-minute music video.
In the video, Boprah speaks one-on-one with Drake about his glow up over the years before and after his beard. During their talk, the “Life is Good,” rapper reveals his secret to his looks with his LSC (light-skinned capability). He pays homage to the LSC greats with Boprah saying,
“You talk about the greats. You talk about Rick Fox, you talk about Shemar Moore.”
To add to the sense of humor for the video, Yachty kept his mustache but donned several wigs, dresses, and pantsuits to impersonate the 66-year-old billionaire.
In a recent interview, Lil Yachty told Complex that Drake was in full support of his vision for the collaboration.
“Drake follows my Finsta, which is crazy. And he was like, ‘Yo, this is dope,’ which blew my mind. Of course that’s the homie, but him showing love like that, [was cool]. Then he [told me to] send it through. I didn’t know he was serious, but he got on.”
During Boprah’s cooking segment, Yachty burns the food so he then orders pizza delivery for the entire audience.
Next, rapper Da Baby makes his appearance as he chats with Boprah about his notorious tendency to use the same flow. He explains why,
“You make every damn song like an ongoing song. You never have to make another song again.”
Yachty added in his talk with Complex how he and Da Baby linked up in Atlanta and immediately jumped on the verse.
“He had a meet and greet in Atlanta, and I went. I didn’t necessarily know he was going to like this song or want to get on it. I didn’t play it for him and he hadn’t heard it. But I hung out with him for three or four hours there, and I was like, “You want to go to the studio?” He came and I played it, and he loved it. He thought it was a hit, so he hopped on it, which was really cool. That was maybe three or four days after I made it.”
To end, Boprah showers the audience with gifts which were obviously credit to the billionaire media mogul’s infamous, “You get a car,” daytime talk show memory.
