Lil Yachty says the Georgia boycotts are a big waste of time because they won't change new voting laws.

New voter ID laws were put in place last month by Gov. Brian Kemp to even the playing field for Republicans.

Lil Yachty said he doesn't think boycotts in Georgia will help change "oppressive" voting laws in his home state, but he's got advice for people worried about getting to the polls.

TMZ caught up with the Atlanta rapper as he was leaving dinner at Delilah in West Hollywood, CA. TMZ asked Yachty about the impact of Major League Baseball, Hollywood film productions and other big businesses pulling out of Georgia in protest over the laws.

Corporations objected to the new voter ID law that requires identification to submit absentee ballots to vote in Georgia.

Democrats argue that IDs are "oppressive" against Black people who don't know how to apply for IDs.

Major League Baseball pulled its All-Star game out of Georgia in protest of the voter ID law. But critics pointed out that the league requires IDs to pick up season tickets.

ID is also required to get vaccinated in Georgia and other states.

Lil Yachty says the boycotts won't last forever because the Peach State is just too stubborn.

Yachty tells TMZ why he's not worried about a business exodus hurting Atlanta's economy, and he offers advice for voters.
