You thought you had heard everything in 2016, didn't you? Feeling pretty comfortable in your sense of certainty that nothing else could possibly surprise you, aren't you? Well I have news for you. Clearly you did not conceive of the possibility that Lil Yachty would put out a song on which he and A$AP Ferg rap over some panpipes, because that is exactly what has happened.
"Terminator" is a fun, good old-fashioned brag fest, on which Yachty and Ferg talk themselves up in a way that I am quite certain is reserved only for rappers who are spitting over a Maaly Raw panpipe beat (sample bar: "my bed's so far from my kitchen I might build me an escalator"). The release of "Terminator" comes swiftly after Yachty premiered "Judgement Free" on Ebro Darden's Beats 1 show, where he also clapped back at everyone who says he can't rap with a freestyle that everyone who says he can't rap probably still hated.
Love him or loathe him, Yachty's viral power is not to be ignored, so I'm going to make a strong call for woodwind rap as the sound of 2017 right now.
