Lil Yachty shook social media, after he shared a video of himself opening up his brand new pair of $1000 earphones, that put all others to shame.
Proud to show off how much money he has, the US rapper asserted that you aren’t actually rich, until you can blow R13 000 on Louis Vuitton earphones.
“I know you thought you were rich, and I understand. But you’re not rich. This is real wealth”, said Lil Yachty. “Throw your air pods away,” the rapper added.
Social media weren’t too keen on Lil Yachty’s bold stance and joked that he could afford R13 000 earphones, but that he couldn’t afford moisturizer.
A hilariously high number of Twitter users commented that Lil Yachty should have moisturized his hands before recording the video because his hands look “ashy”. Some users added that lotion only costs $5, Briefly.co.za found.
Twitter user, Gianni Smith argued that “real wealth” isn’t so much being able to buy fancy and expensive earphones, but being the brand that could sell earphones for $1000.
Other users sarcastically joked that Lil Yachty will have to go make some more “mediocre music” now, so that he can earn some money after having dropped $1000 on earphones.
Another user, Olivia Akolo also pointed out that the rapper, even though he claims to be a musician, is only paying for the Louis Vuitton brand name, but the quality of the audio technology, adding that you shouldn’t trust a clothing brand to make earphones.
The rapper is known for his bold attitude and has released songs called, Gucci Flip Flops and SaintLaurentYSL.
