Lil Yachty killed his performance of "Bring It Back" and brought powder-blue tuxedos back along the way.

Memorial Day weekend kicked off with this excellent performance from lovable controversial hip-hop optimist Lil Yachty on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. For as many allegations that the auto-tuned MC and his contemporaries are largely a manufactured studio creation, Yachty's live outdoor performance here should lay all criticisms to rest.

The dance ballad completely connected in presentation and sound, making even the most jaded hip-hop head want to root for the kid. While some commenters have drawn comparisons to The Wedding Singer, the performance here just further solidifies Yachty as a force.

- Year of the Migos continues with their latest release "2 Hotty."

- The son of the late rap icon Notorious B.I.G. is prepping the release of his debut album.

- This Drake/Sade mash-up, More Love, is a must-hear blend.

- Veterans' Day falls the day after Memorial Day this year with brand new tracks from rap legends Raekwon and Too $hort.
