It’s commonplace for young rap stars to claim that they’ve transcended hip-hop; it’s rarer for them to actually do it. Yachty does.” – THE NEW YORKER

Besides the actual sun, there is no source of joy in the world right now brighter and more sustaining than Lil Yachty.

You will never have as good a night as Lil Yachty. Apologies.” – NOISEY

Today, rising star Ebenezer releases his visual for his track ‘Ask Around’. Directed by Bafic (Mabel/Lily Allen) and his signature style, the video follows Ebenezer on a night out with his friends through a fly on the wall perspective around his city. The video premiered earlier today via The FADER and the song is available at all digital retailers.

‘If you ask around you’ll know we are the life of the party’

In a few short years Ebenezer has worked with the likes of Rejjie Snow, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign and Craig David. With the recent release of “Cliché” featuring PnB Rock, Ebenezer heightens his musical journey, by genre-bending his emotionally tinged R&B by combining it with trap, completely void of the usual pretence that’s flooded the genre. In a way, it could be described as conscious turn-up music.

Born in East London, Ebenezer spent most of his childhood at a cousin’s house in Hackney along with his brother and sister. While his mother was busy holding down three jobs, Ebenezer and his brother spent most of their free time listening to music, watching MTV Base and learning to produce.
