In a recent Instagram post, the Roots co-founder revealed how much he “really really really” enjoyed the Atlanta rapper’s latest LP, declaring it “might be the most surprising transition of any music career I’ve witnessed in a min, especially under the umbrella of hip-hop.”

“But man….whatever you put in your Wheaties bro….keep goin,” Questlove said of Yachty’s newest project. “Shit like this (envelope pushing) got me hyped about music’s future.”
Lil Yachty commented on Questlove’s post with an appreciation for his sentiments. “[T]hank u for the kind words sir,” he wrote.
Let’s Start Here was released Friday (January 27) with the single “sAy sOMETHINg” making BET’s New Music Monday post for this week.
