Watch: Lil Yachty raps about 59 Simpsons characters

Lil Yachty's raps are more fun than a B.Y.O.B.B.

One of the most polarizing names in rap may have just become the world's new favorite MC.

Lil Yachty is hyper-controversial in the world of hip-hop, but not for any sort of subject matter or incidents outside of the booth. Rather, it's because of his distinct "mumbling" melodic style and unshakable happiness. While there seems to be a disconnect between Yachty and older hip-hop fans, we can all agree on classic era The Simpsons being incredible, right?

If that's the case, Yachty is about to win the jaded over with this Roots-backed Simpsons history lesson. Premiering on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the re-arrangement of The Simpsons' theme allows Yachty to touch on some of Springfield's most beloved members. There's also quite a few deep-cuts and one-offs mentioned, as well as two punchlines dedicated entirely to "Steamed Hams."

All is forgiven, Yachty! Your move, Joe Budden. Might we suggest King of the Hill?
