Count Me In

  • Lyrics
  • This song's rhymes find Lil Yachty reflecting on the beginning of his music career, when he tried to prove himself by hanging out with more established rappers.

    "When I came into the rap game being QC I hung around big artists," he told Genius. "Big artists who was established, been established for years. Been had jewelry. Been f---ing hoes, cars, houses. I was like the little dog at first. I got a year or two in, I started feeling like, 'S--t, you gotta count me in.'"
  • The bass-heavy beat is courtesy of Queens, New York-based producer Pi'erre Bourne, who first rose to fame as the instrumentalist for Playboi Carti's breakout hit "Magnolia." Yachty recalled: "I was in L.A. with my engineer and some of the homies in the studio. Pierre sent me some beats, and I just went in and started freestyling the whole thing."
  • The Nick Roney-directed video features Yachty and friends hanging in the California desert. Did you spot Danielle Bregoli, a.k.a. Bhad Bhabie, who has a cameo around the 36-second mark, squatting next to Yachty outside of a bright yellow trailer?
