February 11 marked the 5th anniversary of the Yeezy Season 3 show, orchestrated by Kanye West. The thing may have gone relatively unnoticed, but Lil Yachty was among those who participated in the event, in conditions which are moreover relatively far-fetched. The artist evoked this piece of life on social networks: «5 years ago, I was in the Yeezy show. I was still living with my mother, and a friend gave me a pass so I could go to New York, I must have had like 70 dollars as savings. But it gave me strength, and I feel my life has changed since that day. My mom and my pals congratulated me over text. Thanks Ian [Connor].» In 2016, he had already returned to this episode: «Originally, I was supposed to stand at the bottom. Then, just before the show, I saw the director: «Excuse me, ma’am, don’t you think I should be up front? Don’t you think I have beautiful hair and the color matches the clothes?» They made the change and like that, they put me in front. It opened doors for me. A lot of fashion doors opened after that.»
Today 5 years ago I stood in the yeezy show… I was still living with my mom and flew on a buddy pass to New York with probably $70 bucks to my name.. but I was mad excited and I feel like my life changed from this day on. My mom and friends cheered me on via text. Thanks Ian.
