The father-of-three will now be addressed as JAY-Z, all in capital letters in with a hyphen.

His rep confirmed the name change with the Daily News and said it will be used on his yet to be released album, “4:44,” which comes out on his streaming service Tidal on June 30. Of course, it’s still going to be pronounced the same way but will be written differently.

Lil Yachty is having the time of his life on “Teenage Emotions”

Lil Yachty does not take himself too serious. He is a self-aware kid, who simply is having the time of his life by going against the rules, and living it one song at a time.

Album – Teenage Emotions
Artiste – Lil Yachty
Record Label – Quality Control/Motown/Capital Records (2017)
Duration – 69 minutes

Lil Yachty is just 19 years old.

He cannot legally have alcohol, neither is he considered an adult yet. But for someone so young, he is one of the most divisive figures of Hip hop. He draws derision from the gatekeepers, spark conversations from the elders, and when he lets fly some music, there’s a storm of criticism dogging every comment section available.

But he is a star. The flipside of all that controversy is an adoring fan base made up of young people, millennials who connect deeply to his arrogant and disruptive persona. These people adore his music, attend his concerts, share his words, and embody his spirit. These are the people he focuses on and feeds his brand of music.

Lil YachtyThe Observer

On “Teenage Emotions”, Lil Yachty isn’t a rapper. And although society and culture have tried to force him into a box to name and tag him with existing taxonomy, he still defies them. He sometimes raps two steps behind the beat, or sings with a light tenor that has become his signature vocal. But that is the least of his worries on this new project. He is right on the beat, and ready to make music for people to feel.

The closest he comes to Hip hop is in the Migos-assisted single ‘Peek a Boo’, which comes straight from Atlanta, with the contemporary trap influence. But it is in the pop tracks that he shines with youthful vigour. He plays with novel tools on ‘Made Of Glass’, ‘Lady in Yellow’, and the Island-ready ‘Better’. He talks of his relationship with his mother, his love for life and everything else.

In the end, Lil Yachty does not take himself too serious. He is a self-aware kid, who simply is having the time of his life by going against the rules, and living it one song at a time.
