Lil Yachty is fast becoming hip-hop’s next big thing. The young ATLien rapper was featured as part of Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 launch, has been in the studio with Tyler, The Creator and had underground hit Minnesota played on OVO Radio. He recently released his debut mixtape, Lil Boat (read our review here), to positive reviews, and is already talking about another project that’s got me really excited.
Interviewed by the VFiles during this year’s SXSW on a yacht of all places, Yachty revealed he’s working on a collaborative mixtape with contemporaries Lil B and Soulja Boy. “We gonna make the Pretty Boy Millionaires 2 mixtape,” he told host Rox Brown. For those not in the know, Pretty Boy Millionaires is an excellent tape crafted by Lil B and Soulja Boy back in 2010 that’s well worth checking out.
Lil Yachty certainly isn’t your average rap star, so it deciding to team up with fellow indie rappers Lil B and Soulja makes sense. Without a release date or confirmation from the other two artists regarding Pretty Boy Millionaires 2, I take what Yachty says with a grain of hopeful salt. In the meantime, if you haven’t experienced Yachty yet, do yourself a favour and stream his mixtape below.
