A few weeks ago, radio host Funk Flex promised to pull through with Yachty’s freestyle.
Me and @lilyachty have bumped heads many times… I called #ChrisGreen phone a week ago and #TheBoat picked up… he said “let’s have an interview” …… I said “I don’t really do interviews BUT you can come get some bars popping?” I didn’t think he would do it.. but he called and said “I’m ready… I’m coming up there” #Freestyle091 DROPS MONDAY 10AM !!!!!!!
