I would never wake up and think, “Damn, I need a Lexus.”Casey: They’re nice, dude. That’s why it’s so funny.Casey: It’s kind of weird.Lil Yachty: Since this is an interview and I have you here, where do you get the inspiration for these skits?Casey: Could be just from watching something online or I’ll be in a mood and I’ll just be with myself for a certain amount of time until I can make a skit out of it.Lil Yachty: Do you script it or is it just fuck it?Casey: No, I don’t write anything. I definitely posted it. I’ve been writing music.Lil Yachty: You’re going to start writing music?Casey: No, I’m already making music, but I’m going to start writing some to pitch.Lil Yachty: Do you find writing more difficult than writing your own thing?Casey: Yeah, for sure because it’s work. You got to let them know that you’re definitely hilarious.Casey: Thank you, man. It was hilarious.Casey: Snoop posted it.Lil Yachty: Yeah, that’s fire. Assistant producer: Taylor Roberts I’m sure you’ve been stopped over a few times.Casey: I’ve gotten stopped, but I’ve never gotten a ticket ever.Lil Yachty: Really?Casey: I’m a pretty good driver, though.Lil Yachty: I think I have nine speeding tickets on my record.Casey: Really?Lil Yachty: Yeah, I got my license taken away twice in the last year.Casey: Damn, you were just hauling ass?Lil Yachty: Fast cars. A few months ago we asked rapper Lil Yachty and comedian Casey Frey to photograph each other on Zoom (because we thrive on chaos), and it lived up to everything we had hoped for: Logging in 10 minutes early to find Casey just sitting in silence, Yachty coming on 30 minutes late and sitting in his sneaker closet, Casey singing “Disturbia” on repeat, Yachty photographing Casey while eating waffles… She’s nice. You need to sit down and write shit out instead of-Lil Yachty: Instead of just being you?Casey: Yeah, or instead of making shit when the inspiration is there, it’s more like work.Lil Yachty: I love your skits like the one where you’re the drunk girl the day before the wedding. Nick Colletti, he’s hilarious.Lil Yachty: Yeah, he’s funny, too. I was just super fucked up. That’s when I first saw you in that video.Casey: Yeah, I think you sort of helped me pop off when that went on. She’s an older lady. I appreciate it.Lil Yachty: It’s all good, bro.Casey: It can be hard to tell sometimes how much someone actually likes it or if they’re commenting. Especially the way you can pull your shoulders up.Casey: Yeah, put your guns up. Just dropped off sweets. She’s been doing my mom’s hair since I was alive. Then the homie that you do things with. I live with 10 people, so it’s an interesting day every day. It would be stupid not to give you your own thing, bro.Casey: I know. No indication of where it came from. Give me sexy cowboy.Casey: This is the first time we’ve ever met and we just go right into taking pictures.Lil Yachty: I know! When I first started doing music and first made “1 NIGHT” in 2016, kids would come up to me all the time and be like, “Yo bro, we played this song so much here.” But in the moment you don’t ever get to think about, “Damn, I wonder who’s watching this.” Sometimes we can forget or be discouraged or confused about whatever we’re doing especially if in the moment it’s not turning into gold or turning into overnight success. Did I ever tell you that?Casey: Did you?Lil Yachty: I bought a few shirts and I bought them for everyone.Casey: What did you buy? Jump in your pool!Lil Yachty: I wish, but these braids are fresh.Casey: Who does your braids?Lil Yachty: My mom’s hair stylist does. Weird.Casey: Is that safe?Lil Yachty: Right! What merch?Lil Yachty: I have the All Men Are Friends shirt.Casey: That’s one of the first ones.Lil Yachty: Yeah, but that video went so up. Did you repost it?Lil Yachty: Yes! You can’t really tell how much someone likes it unless they’re actually talking to you.Lil Yachty: I need to stop, but I just want to let you know that you’re doing your thing and I love it. It’s like a sports car. I’ll usually just do hella takes and I’ll keep adding onto it. I’m going to start writing something right now, though. It actually kind of helped with it because I was actually so messed up.Lil Yachty: That one was actually so hilarious. It’s so smooth that you can’t tell.Lil Yachty: A smooth Lexus.Casey: It’s smooth.Lil Yachty: That’s so white. I’ll remember what i did and keep adding things on until it’s good.Lil Yachty: Damn, it’s so good though, bro. Ferraris, Lambourghinis and a Hell Cat.Casey: Wow, it’s like a set up. You look like Johnny Depp in 1999. Did you just freestyle it?Casey: Yeah, that was on the second take. It’s not like crazy crazy, but it’s faster than anything I’ve ever had. I show everyone anytime I’m with someone or a girl, I always pull up your videos because it’s guaranteed to make someone laugh. I think his name is Nick?Casey: Yeah. It’s so funny that you did 10 seconds and then from there, it was just top tier. That’s where I’m at. They’re probably trying to poison us. You know I bought your merch! You guys need your own thing, bro. It’s a group home.Casey: Group home up in here.Lil Yachty: I live in a white neighborhood and they dropped off sweets yesterday at my doorsteps with no note. For sure, for sure. They last forever.Lil Yachty: I wouldn’t even know that. I’m so jealous that you have blue eyes.PAPER: What are you eating?Lil Yachty: A Cinnamon Toast Crunch waffle… Read the transcript of their Zoom call, below (edited down for time).Lil Yachty: Casey fucking Frey!Casey Frey: What’s up man?Lil Yachty: His lighting is so good. People are interested, I just needed to get my shit together sort of. I recently got a new Lexus GLS. Alright, let’s start it off. you get the gist.
