Rapper Lil Yachty is featured in the latest issue of SSENSE.

Brent Goldsmith lensed the shoot, and Saam Emme styled it. The creative individual, who has a nice personality styles in Balenciaga, Yeezy Season 2, Craig Green, Off-White and Sacai in the images.

The Atlanta native was interviewed by Max Mohenu. Below are some excerpts:

How would you say your style is different from other Southern rappers?

Lil Yachty: Well, I think I’m different, so my sound and style are automatically different than other Southern rappers. I don’t know, I just try to do me.

Would you say there’s a blueprint for style and aesthetic in the South?

I don’t think there’s necessarily a blueprint or particular look for Southern rappers. Nothing current, anyway. If there was a “look,” I’d say it’s maybe a 90s look.

Are the beaded braids a fashion trend over there?

No. Not the South. I don’t know where it started. I think Hurricane Chris used to do it. He might be from New Orleans, but I’m not sure.

I’ve seen you match your beads with outfits in other editorials you’ve done before. Are there certain color hair beads or color patterns you like to match with?

It’s funny, because back in the day I used to match my beads with my outfit, but when my hair got longer it was harder to do. I don’t really have a preference. I usually do clear beads now, so that’s much easier.
