Lil Yachty‘s so pumped for live music festivals to make their return this summer … he’s ready to backflip right in.

The rapper says the absence of in-person concerts over the past year has been really tough, so just the thought of taking the stage with a packed crowd gets his blood pumping.

Yachty, who’s set to perform at Portugal’s Rolling Loud festival in July and at Chicago’s Summer Smash in August — tells us the connection he gets with his fans at a live show is unique and he expects the energy to be 50 times as intense after the long COVID break.

The hip-hop star also weighed in on one of hip-hop’s biggest feuds over the past few years — one in which he landed smack dab in the middle of and is still trying to do damage control.

Lil Yachty talked about why he sided with Cardi B over Nicki Minaj back in 2018, but explains why it’s not nearly as controversial as it’s been made out to be or at least that’s how he sees it.

“It’s the Barbz, man. They’re still killing me,” Yachty said when asked about the beef. “I woke up yesterday to a heat of fire under my butt from the Barbz. And the thing about that was I think I’m just big on loyalty. I got a lot of love for Cardi B and she’s like family to me so I’ll do whatever. I’m gonna ride. But I’ve loved Nicki Minaj since I was a child.”

“I even hit Drake, I’m like, ‘Yo Drake, tell Nicki I love her. I love her to death,’” Yachty said laughing.

He ended by saying “I checked this morning and I’m still blocked by her on all social media”.

Well we all know Nicki can be one tough cookie who likes to hold grudges. Anyways, Yachty… don’t hold your breath!
