Lil Yachty has always been known to engage in some antics from time to time. In his music, Yachty exudes youthful exuberance and this same philosophy applies to his everyday life. At times, Yachty likes to film these antics and share them with the world. Typically, it always makes for some fun viewing and it's ultimately part of the reason why he is so beloved by all of his fans.
On Friday, Yachty decided to film a friendly race with his 50-year-old father, and it was entertaining, to say the least. Throughout the video, you can see Yachty talking a whole lot of smack before considerably outpacing his father. From there, he calls his dad an "old ass man" and belittles him for losing what appeared to be a make-shift 100-meter dash.
When you consider the age gap, Yachty's win shouldn't come as that much of a surprise. However, it is important to note that next week is Father's Day which means he will have to make this up to his dad somehow. Losing a race to your son in front of thousands of people isn't fun and we're sure he's expecting a nice gift as payback for what he had to go through.
Needless to say, it was all in good fun and we're sure Yachty's dad did plenty of winning when he was younger.
Steelers’ James Conner Delivers Heartwarming Gift To His Dad
James Conner is spreading some positive vibes during these uncertain times.
Between Coronavirus and the racial inequality in the United States and throughout the world, it is easy to get depressed with the state of affairs right now. Having said that, there has been some good news as of late and Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner came through with some of that good news over the weekend.
In a now-viral video, Conner showed off the moment in which he gifted his dad a brand new pickup truck. As you can see from the clip below, Conner and his father are standing across the street from the truck when the Steelers star reveals that the truck now belongs to his dad. Conner's father was shocked at first and then looked at his truck in giddy excitement. It was a beautiful moment between a father and son and we're sure they will remember this for a very long time.
What made the video humorous was the fact that Conner's dad refused to get in the car at first. Instead, he just wanted to admire the gift he had just been given. It adds a very pure quality to the video and we hope Conner's dad enjoys and drives the hell out of that car.
Many parents are instrumental in the success of professional athletes as they have to make numerous sacrifices along the path to glory. Clearly, Conner felt his dad was a major part of that journey.
George Floyd’s Daughter Gianna Opens Up About Her Dad: "I Miss Him"
When asked what she wants people to know about her father, George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter, Gianna, responded: “That I miss him.”
George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter, Gianna Floyd, opened up about missing her father, whose murder at the hands of police last week sparked nationwide protests against police brutality and systemic racism. On Thursday (June 4th), Gianna and her mother, Roxie Washington, sat down with ABC News to talk about George. When asked by news anchor Eva Pilgrim what she wants people to know about her father, Gianna told her, “kinda that I miss him.”
During the interview, Gianna says that her dad always “played with me,” which Roxie emphasizes. “She didn’t have to play with nobody else ‘cause daddy was gonna play with her all day long…I mean, that was his baby. He loved his little girl.”

Roxie also adds that while she didn’t tell Gianna exactly what had happened, the 6-year-old knew something was different about her dad’s death. “She said ‘I hear them. I hear them saying my daddy’s name,’” Roxie explained. “She doesn’t know what happened. I told her that her dad died ‘cause he couldn’t breathe.” At one point, Gianna reveals what she wants to be when she grows up. “I wanna be a doctor,” she says. “I wanna take care of people.”
In a new viral clip, Gianna can be seen on the shoulders of one of her dad’s best friends, NBA star Stephen Jackson, looking around proudly. “Daddy changed the world!” she declares.
It was recently revealed that Kanye West had set up a college fund for Gianna, along with covering the legal costs for the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
Joyner Lucas Buys His Dad A Benz & A Rolex
Joyner Lucas made his dad’s birthday one to remember with a pair of lavish gifts.
Though his pre-fame come-up might have been difficult at times, Joyner Lucas can officially say he’s made it in the rap game. Not only has he finally dropped off his anticipated debut album ADHD at long last, he’s also earned the respect of veterans like Eminem, Royce Da 5’9″, Chris Brown, Will Smith, and more. Suffice it to say, Joyner is doing pretty well for himself, to the point where he can pay it forward for his loved ones.

And that’s exactly what he did on his father’s birthday. Taking to Instagram to showcase some of the kingly gifts, Joyner revealed that he recently copped his dad a Mercedes Benz and a diamond-encrusted Rolex — not only that, but he also shared a throwback picture of himself and his dad in simpler times, with Joyner Sr. holding it down with bottle in hand.
At this point, it’s become a rite of passage for rappers to bless their parents with lavish gifts, gestures that often lead to some genuinely wholesome moments. We can only hope Joyner and his dad enjoyed a drink together like old time’s sake, but only after taking the new car for a lengthy spin. Congratulations to the Lucas boys.
