Lil Yachty is from nowhere near the Midwest — the “bubblegum trap” star hails from Atlanta — but he’s basically a hometown sweetheart thanks to his song “Minnesota.” Today, St. Paul’s Allan Kingdom dropped a remix of our state’s eponymous song, laying throaty raps over the plinky beat and shouting out Purple Rain. The first lines? “I been all around the globe, yeah/ But I stay in Minnesota.”
The remix isn’t all. In the song’s description, he writes, “Thanks 4 everything, new album soon.” His forthcoming project will be his first album since Northern Lights, which he released for free in January.
