Regardless of what music you listen to, you’ve probably seen Lil Yachty at some point in the last year. Whether it’s his Target commercials with Carly Rae Jepsen, his appearance on Kyle’s hit song “iSpy,” or his breakout last year on D.R.A.M.’s “Broccoli,” the kid is everywhere, and rightfully so. Having dubbed himself The King of Teens, Yachty has built his career on positivity and fun, and this latest appearance on Jimmy Fallon – in which the young rapper does a verse comprised almost entirely of Simpsons references – is exactly what you might come to expect from him if you’ve been following his career.
In a video that runs just short of three minutes, you can see Yachty accompanied by The Roots and Fallon himself (who’s holding a bunch of cue cards with each character’s name and face on them) as he name drops everyone from Homer to Fallout Boy. He also manages to drop some clever references along the way, including a nod to steamed hams. The video comes just a few weeks after Lil Yachty’s latest album, “Teenage Emotions,” which was released on May 26th.
The Simpsons, on the other hand, just wrapped up its 28th season and is set to premiere its 29th on October 1st. It’s reaching a point where the majority of Simpsons fans – people like Yachty himself, for instance, who’s only 19 – are younger than the actual show. It continues to be the longest-running American sitcom and animated series in history, having released more than 600 episodes since its premiere in 1989.
