Lil Yachty is still a proud user of the word “swag,” despite actor Luka Sabbat’s negative review of the term.
On Saturday (March 18), Sabbat made an off-hand comment on social media about how people who use “swag” or “drip” don’t actually have either, but Yachty was quick to refute the claim.
“Anyone who uses the word ‘drip’ or ‘swag’ has none of the above,” Sabbot tweeted, to which Lil Boat said, “Not true, I say swag and I stand on being one of the flyest n-ggas breathing.”

In other news, Lil Yachty is gearing up to bring his swag to Saturday Night Live next month. Alongside host Quinta Brunson, the Atlanta native will provide the music for the show airing on April 1.
Past rap performers on SNL as of late include Lil Baby, Jack Harlow and Megan Thee Stallion.
Lil Yachty’s name has reverberated across the news wire for multiple reasons as of late.
Earlier this month, he told Twitter that he’s thinking about not doing interviews anymore because he feels as if he’s “misunderstood.” “I think ima all around just stop doing interviews, because the things I say are never understood as intended,” he tweeted.
Earlier this year, Yachty was forced to explain himself after getting a ton of backlash for saying that he wanted to move away from having the “mumble rapper” tag attached to his artistry.
At a January listening party for his eccentric rock-inspired Let’s Start Here album, Yachty explained how important it was for him to make an album that will allows fans and listeners to see his musical abilities from a different perspective.
“This album is so special and dear to me,” he said. “I think I created it just because I really wanted to be taken serious as an artist, you know? Not just some SoundCloud rapper, not some mumble rapper, not some guy that just made one hit.”
He added: “I wanted to be really taken serious because music is, like, everything to me. I respect all walks of music, not just rap and Hip Hop. Everything. So I think I wanted to make something to show the world just how great it was to me.”
