Besides the actual sun, there is no source of joy in the world right now brighter and more sustaining than Lil Yachty. So basically, the moral of the story is: cancel all your plans and stay at home, and instead just understand that the Goodest Night has now been had, by one Lil Boat, Esq. You will never have as good a night as Lil Yachty. Apologies.” – NOISEY

ABOUT NESSLY
With a flow as wild as his ever-evolving presence, 22-year-old Nessly immediately draws attention to himself. Two 2016 projects—Still Finessin and Solo Boy Band—introduced the world to his singular style with The Fader asserting, Nessly sets himself apart with his Solo Boy Band project.” Beyond acclaim from Complex, Pigeons and Planes, and Noisey, XXL would go so far as to claim that he takes “his sonics to an untouchable level that will challenge the industry.” Emerging from the fertile Soundcloud battleground, he’s already received support from Drake’s OVO Sound Radio and Pharrell’s OHTERtone in addition to collaborations with everyone from Lil Yachty, Playboi Carti, and A$AP Mob to a tour with Ugly God. He blossoms into the star he was always meant to be on his 2018 major label debut project, WILDFLOWER[Republic Records]. Executive Produced by TM88 [Travis Scott, Future] and Take A Daytrip [6lack, Raury], all 14 tracks speak to the artist’s comment to thick soundscapes and even thicker hooks. From the woozy chant of the single “Back 2 Life” to the creepy catchiness of “WHOHASIT” [feat. Ski Mask The Slump God] and spacey R&B on “Water Springs” [feat. 24hrs], a very bright future is in bloom for Nessly.
