Published

on

Kali Uchi is next up to cover The FADER’s forthcoming Summer Music Issue. She is the final of four covers, following Cardi B, Paramore’s Hayley Williams, and Lil Yachty. The print edition hits newsstands July 25, and can be pre-ordered here.

Kali Uchis on her image ahead of her forthcoming album:
“I like to conceptualize a project before I put it in motion. The last project was all pastels and blonde and pink, all dreamy and angelic. It was very baby. This one is more mature. I feel more in tune with myself, Like I’ve actually come into my own as a woman.”

Tyler, the Creator on working with Kali Uchis:
“Her sense of melody is good and works really well with my chords. We knock ideas out quick, and we trust each other. Our timeline of songs 20 years from now is gonna be great.”

Kali Uchis on advocating for oppressed communities:
“I don’t like to see people using their power over others, trying to hurt people who are weak, or poor, or people with darker skin, or anyone who doesn’t have as much privilege. It makes me so angry. I want to fight for people. I want to be able to make some kind of difference in the world. I really don’t like to label myself. I just believe in standing up for people, and against discrimination. I consider myself an advocate for human rights. And for doing the right thing.”

Kali Uchis on her public persona:
“A lot of times I don’t feel like I’m her. A lot of times I feel like I’m helping her. But we have the same purpose.”

Lil Yachty on his busy social life:
“I hate being alone. That’s why I like being with my friends: we’ve got energy, we’re social as hell. I’m not 30 or anything — I’m 19.”

On being treated like a child:
“Some of that shit is so lame. I push this ‘king of the teens’ shit, but they be thinking teens like 13. On some super corny, under-underage shit. It happens all the time.”

Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg on Lil Yachty:
“Yachty’s always gotten it. We had to have the old heads conversation, but we liked him personally. He’s wise beyond his years for sure.”

Lil Yachty on the unique artist & manager relationship he has with Coach K:
“It makes things pretty one-sided sometimes. Like, technically the manager works for the artist. What the artist says goes. But I know Coach always has the best intentions, so sometimes he just tells me what to do. And I don’t really have any say. I mean, I have a say so, but for the most part I don’t really care to say anything.”

Producer Su$h! Ceej on Yachty’s songwriting process:
“He knows what beats he wants and is very specific with the sound he’s trying to create, freestyling everything at first and fine-tuning as he goes, making a lot of songs in a short amount of time depending on how many pizza breaks or what video games are in the other room.”
