Travis Blackley, Lil Yachty

Lil Yachty fired back at a baseball star who dissed the rapper's performance during the Atlanta Falcons vs New York Giants Monday Night Football game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

MLB pitcher Travis Blackley threw a fastball at Yachty's head after the rapper finished his autotune lip-sync performance during halftime.

Yachty performed his hit track "Everything Good Everything Right" as the musical guest for the Monday Night Football telecast, and pitcher Blackley was among the listeners who couldn't believe their ears.

In a new-deleted tweet, Blackley wrote:

"Absolute trash! How does this even pass for talent! Nothing about this so called music is real! What's ur voice actually sound like without Autotune? It can't be any worse that this!"

Yachty was unaware of Blackely's negative music review until his Twitter followers informed him.

The annoyed rapper responded by taunting Blackley, who is currently between teams.

"That's why u a free agent b**ch,” the rapper tweeted on Tuesday.

  • kree

    It is trash...........

  • Vonn

    His music is trash though. Oh well.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    He said what everybody else was thinking.

  • Trace da Ace

    Well...dude ain't lying.....all of that nasal azz, auto tuned, non rhyming, gibberish is trash....it's to the point where I can't listen to the Hip Hop channel on XM cause they always have this mess on!!

    BOMBS have been sent to President OBAMA, and Hilary Clinton. This can be solidly laid at the feet of Donald Trump and the divisive, racist, violent way he is leading this country.

  • tintin

    these entertainers need thicker skin, not everyone is gonna like your music, i personally don't care of this kid but hey if you're making money who cares, take the hate and move on.

  • SpiceGirl

    You and me both....

  • SpiceGirl

    He does know...EVERYONE is entitled to THIER opinion? And it is what it is.....

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Well I'm sorry dude, but he isn't lying

  • SpiceGirl

    Oh yeah..and your beads are PLAYED out bruh

  • Gloria

    Homeboy wasn’t lying tho. His music sucks!

  • the guest

    I think music, like art and beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

    I do not support criticism of hip hop, even when accurate, that has an underlying racist tone. However, this part is a fair criticism of today's generation of hip hop:

    What’s ur voice actually sound like without Autotune?

    With that said, I must point out that people criticized Bob Dylan and Woodie Gutherie as not being able to sing and criticized the Beatles as overrated musicians for mainly playing three chords.

    Who is that baseball player to insult Lil Yachty? Where's his manners and home training? How about thanking an artist for coming to the game to entertain baseball fans.

  • Yoni7

    Where's the lie?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well lil Yachtzee everybidy can't be wrong

  • the guest

    Even though true, he didn't have to insult him like that. Obviously Lil Yachty is a lost kid of this generation. Thanks for the show and leave it at that.

  • tia

    Unfortunately we are at a day in time where the bar and standards are super duper low. As a result, the "industry" is accepting anything and everybody and blowing it up. I know I'm getting up in age too and maybe I can't connect? Especially the rap/hip , R& B and music in general; it's totally deplorable. The guy really told no lies.

  • the guest

    WHAT????

  • Soda

    It was a football game and as an attendee, the baseball player had the right to say what he said.

  • Kbellaluvvs

    ok where's the lie? Lil Boat only entertaining to kids and most of them have grown up..

  • SunRiseBlossom

    LMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • the guest

    @theguest

  • ClaireHuxtable

    George Soros got one yesterday. The Repubs are accusing him of funding the Caravan refugees.
    Trump thinks middle Eastern terrorists are hiding in the middle.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    You're ANALytical viepoint has comparisons among "musicians" that doesn't properly match. Today's entertainers ARE GARBAGE and being paid wasteful amount of money of winch they sound on frivolous mataerial and MIND ALTERING SUBSTANCE. I AM BLACK AND I APPRIVE THE MLB ACTIONS AND OPIONION. Your opinion however makes excuses for the garbage... And your trying to turn this into A RACIAL THANG...NOPE I AIN'T BAITED! Miss me with that mentally! BYE!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Good thing wealthy people don't open their own mail.

  • wonderwoman

    Blackley wasn’t lying...

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    The "insult" was needed.. Lil Yucky need to choose a better name cause Yacht is a term meaning Hennessy drank and turnup thus his influence among this generation is not needed!

  • Ni Ni

    I was thinking i might be old too, but I'm wondering why i can get with other generations' music that I've heard up til now, like music from well before i was born.

    I like some Nat Turner type, old jazz, motown, 70s music. I can't put todays music in my library. There's something about it that really irritates me; makes me itch,etc.

  • Kimocha

    "What’s ur voice actually sound like without Autotune?"
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    That's a damn good question!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Artists don't play instruments and write songs anymore. Bands pretty much don't exist.
    It's hard to get recognition for being able to sing well. You also need to be freaky.

  • Trey

    Hes right...truth hurts......pathetic

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    "MLB pitcher Travis Blackley threw a fastball at Yachty’s head after the
    rapper finished his autotune lip-sync performance during halftime."

    IS THIS BEING WRITTEN "TONGUE IN CHEEK"? HE DID NOT REALLY THROW A FASTBALL AT HIS HEAD, RIGHT.................................?

  • Alextra Ballard

    ****We need a post on these BOMBS that were sent to Hillary and Bill Clinton and maybe the OBAMAS*****

  • Ni Ni

    Thanks im checking out cnn now!

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    One has also been sent to The White House (a decoy (in my opinion) to deflect that these are more likely right wingers trying to stir up things before the upcoming elections. The Time Warner Building (CNN) has also been evacuated.

    I heard about it on the radio, what's really going on here?

  • Renee26

  • Reenaface

    Exactly. It's his opinion....

  • Pamela

    Keep your fingers crossed .

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Yacht is 1 of those people who doesn't have enough talent or saleability to garner legitimate record deals but does have enough lowlife desperation to comply w/the bs of the jews&black aging perv execs who can force advertising & Marketing deals into the public scene in exchange for foul behind the scenes activity. *waves, hi nxggxs*
    I say, if you are so malleable for the bs behind the scenes, do it publicly like you're 'a boss'.,no? Like harvey, like antonio, like the carters, and the other low talents u won't & u WILL deny it like ur life depends on it...because honestly, it does.

    Today's entertainers ARE GARBAGE
    --------------------
    You said it! We just discussed this yesterday in the Minaj/Chapman post - I.e., "today's entertainers" and how they don't measure up to genuinely talented ARTISTS.

  • Renee26

    ?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Some nut job is finally putting Trump's words to action.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Freaky? Na, u need to be all out sexually exploitable. Men who prostitute, women who will sell you their children kind of all out exploitable

  • Reenaface

    We may need another British invasion with music. Where's Adele, Sade, at?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I agree with him.. BYE AND BITE ME!

  • Soda

    I'm irritated that music I like from 70s & 80s is being sampled or covered by some artists whose versions get overplayed to the point that I don't even want to hear the original anymore!

  • hi-liter

    Even White ears recognize trash when they hear it.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yew are absolutely correct...that's why I don't undastand why folks spazz out when you express yours

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond
  • Rainbowbelow

    Lil engine that could needs to realize that a lot of people agree with the baseball player including me...

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I wonder if Trump is behind this? Or some radical Republican?

  • hi-liter

    He blowing the Covert Dog Whistle.

  • Gloria

    Underground- Not mainstream. There's good artists out there- you have to look for them tho.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Wait, one was sent to the White House, too. So maybe Trump isn't behind it, but a foreign country possibly?

  • Renee26

    It's Ella Mae's turn now ?

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    And everyone has one.....lol. It shouldn't even be a problem at this point.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I was wondering what the h*** it meant. I just drink the Hennessy & enjoy the results ... I didnt know it had a whole name for it lol

  • ClaireHuxtable

    One in the same. Original Republicans don't even recognize the Republican party anymore. They used to stand for strict Christian values. Now they're cussing each other out in the church parking lot.
    Trump has truly messed with their minds.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile lil dingy gon learn tidday!!!

    Rap music has turned into Garbage.... You know its bad when the white people that they sold the music genre out for is not even buying it.

  • Soda

    I thought that Hurricane Willa was going to do Mexico's work and stop that caravan but it has become a tropical storm. Looks like more people keep being added.

  • tia

    Ella doesn't have the best voice, but she jam's tho.
    I can easily listen to her. It's EASY listening too.

  • Ni Ni

    The thing a lot of people don't understand is that there is still good r&b artists and they have been putting out very good songs. However, they are our older artists: Johnny Gill, Calvin Richardson, Babyface, After 7, En Vogue, Pebo Bryson, & many others. People don't support them because of their age, but their music sounds better than the young r&b artists. We dont have to oogle over blue eyed soul all the time, we still have some of our legends.

    You're not going to get straight up R&B from younger artists like Chris Brown, they are too ingrained in hip hop. Although, Kevin Ross gives me some hope. He sings, plays piano, and i believe he writes.

  • tia

    LOL!! Not itching tho:)

    Yeah, today's music has no substance at all. And if there are any good musicians out there, the "power's that be" saturates us with only ONE person. Knowing there's more talent out there. It's bad right now.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I hope some people from Puerto Rico jump in there too since Trump didn't know he's their president!
    Their island still isn't fixed.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Do people really care??? I'm asking because I don't think so at all.. but reporting on it may increase evening news ratings... kind of like the kashoggi killing... it's salacious, but I don't believe regular citizens care a bit

    Tell the truth and SHAME the white Devil selling this bs!! his and many others out successfully selling to stupid blind and dumb!! Musizk sellin these days suck donkey butt only the illiterals are buyin into that bs thats why award shows are sooooooo boring and lame now? It will never be str8 raw hardcore real G rap like Spice one mc eight nwa bone thugz pac or biggie EVER again! Once the white man got of a hold of hiphop and rap it was over ??? Just like we will never see another MJ ??!! I miss him terribly btw but im more happy hes at peace something the world never wanted to give him!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Newsflash, most of the music out right now is garbage. When was the last time you were able to sing along to 69, Yachty, Uzi, Peep, Pump Trippie or any of these mumble rappers? The producers get the credit for making a fire beat but what are these artists really saying in their music?

  • NorthDeKalb

    Baseball guy nailed it, Yachty is one of the worst out there, an embarrassment to the Atlanta hip hop brand. He makes 21 Savage seem like Andre 3000 by comparison.

  • Li-Wright

    I didn't see it, but I agree with the baseball star.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    & YOU,have finished it for me... ?'s such truth .. I don't think even the white kids/people who let them sellout for the marketing is interested in "sacrificing" babies, gang-rape & general retardi behavior in exchange for an album promo tour or "hot new single"... it's just too much. & amongst white people , jews still aren't well liked people so their contribution to the things described above to exploit black/minority rappers is enough to skip album purchases & concert tickets until things get much better

  • ohdearme

    Wait so the player threw a fastball at him, then trashed his "music"? I'd say this "rapper" gave a great response! It's cool to throw stones as long as you don't mind having them thrown back at you. "That's why u a free agent b" hehe pretty funny.

    Yes they did. That's why they don't want your daughter to be able to get an abortion.
    Or your son to have the right to be a transgendered woman now.

  • T Willis

    Naw, the music from those artists sound dated with poor lyrics. It’s not age or visibility, for why those artists aren’t more successful, it’s the horrible music that they put out.

    Take Tamia for instance... I just listened to her latest album, and it’s not good. I think there were like 2 songs worth purchasing. Now, I am a huge Tamia fan. She is someone who’s album I can buy and not worry about being sold trash music. But, these past two albums haven’t been good.

    Sometimes good artists produce trash music. It happens. Maybe they don’t have the necessary budget for dope tracks AND a dope songwriter. Maybe these things were more affordable in the 90s before corporations took over the r&b scene.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    Lol was wondering the same

  • Rayne

    He didn’t lie! It is trash ?

  • mona q

    It isn’t my choice but I wouldn’t call it trash. It’s for someone because he’s clearly making money ????? I will say that whenever I’ve seen his performances, I wondered why he wasn’t giving more effort and why he seemed of beat.

  • ShWa

    It probably was trash.....just because it's rap doesn't mean it was good music there are good rappers then there's trashy rappers....

  • ShWa

    Some of these rappers out now are trash it probably was trash I don't know the song he but did not say rap music was trash so.....

  • Fire & Ice

    These comments though ???

    The record companies did that to r & b and the music execs sold out and did not invest and grow their black audience.
    R&B is where it is because of the poor prejudice treatment the black customers recieved. R & B and the music industry in general shows the ultimate disrespect to the black consumer. Even though it’s their main audience.

  • T Willis

  • Princess

    Yachtys music wasn't made for him. Musical taste is inherently subjective. Unless you talking about instruments and technicalities the only thing that separates trash music from music is whose perspective is deemed worthy.
