Lil Yachty ‘Thought A Cello Was A Woodwind Instrument’ When Writing ‘Peek a Boo’

by Malachi Weaver

Lil Yachty recently spoke with Genius about his song “Peek a Boo”, featuring Migos, and finally confronted his confusing cello line:

“My new b***h yellow/ She blow that d**k like a cello.”

Yachty passed on the blame for that line to his A&R for not warning him:

“OK, let’s stop for a second. Before you come at me, I’ma let you know. I’ma blame my A&R. Because he listened to that song many times and he allowed me to say that. I guess for a second, I thought a cello was a woodwind instrument and it is not. And nobody ever said shit. Nobody ever pulled up a pic and said, ‘Hey man. I don’t know if you know what this is, but it ain’t that.’ I f**ked up. I thought Squidward played the cello. He don’t. That’s a flute. I fucked up. But it do sound good.”
