Lil Yachty and Cole Bennett have finally delivered on the visual collab they’ve been teasing for the past week. For Yachty’s new hypnotic cut “TESLA”, he tapped long-term collaborator and Lyrical Lemonade founder, Bennett, to work his cinematic magic on Boat’s fourth (!) track of the month.
“TESLA” sees Yachty flex on every bar, leaning into his dreamy autotune-infused vocals: “We keep on droppin’ the block, it’s a real reason / Back and forth, back and forth, ’til it ain’t even / ‘Til it ain’t easy, seek help immediately,” he floats on the first verse.
The music video sees the rapper flexing his dance moves, dabbling across an array of different colored backdrops, each boasting a vibrant colorway – to which he matches his outfit. Bennett curates an array of captivating scenes of Yachty, evoking the rapper’s energy throughout the playful video.

Yachty’s been on quite the run lately. While he kicked off the year with the psychedelic Let’s Start Here, and dropped off “Poland” mid-year, the Atlanta rapper has served up a slew of tracks throughout the summer. He compiled his latest new releases – “Slide”, “SOLO STEPPIN CRETE BOY” and “Strike (Holster)” – along with “TESLA” into a four-pack entitled TESLA. He also released “Warriors” as part of 1017 ALYX 9SM’s musical venture, 1017 ALYX 9SM COMPILATION VOL. 1. He’s also been making moves outside of the music space, recently fronting the latest Arc’Teryx campaign.
“TESLA” is available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music. Stream the alluring Bennett-directed music video above.
