CRITIC’S PICK: Last year, a random leak of a song called “Poland” went viral, and to probably most music listeners’ surprise, it catapulted Lil Yachty back into the music industry’s upper echelon of artists. Soon thereafter, Yachty turned heads even more by dropping his fifth studio album and lauded departure record, Let’s Start Here., on January 27, and since its release, the Atlanta-bred artist has been on an unbelievable run thanks to singles like “Strike (Holster),” “SOLO STEPPIN CRETE BOY,” and the J. Cole-assisted “The Secret Recipe.” With his forthcoming show at the Coca-Cola Roxy, Yachty is perfectly poised to put an exclamation point on the end of an already incredible year, so make sure you grab tickets to Lil Boat’s homecoming concert on Wednesday, November 8. — Joshua Robinson
