Lil Yachty's forthcoming debut album is almost ready to set sail.

After being honored in Forbes' annual 30 under 30 list, being named the creative director of Nautica and scoring a Grammy nomination for his feature on D.R.A.M.'s "Broccoli," the 19-year-old MC revealed the title of his upcoming album in an interview with MTV News.

The "Shoot Out the Roof" rapper says his album's name will be Teenage Emotions. "My fans are so loyal and dedicated that I don’t care that much about winning people over, but I know it’s gonna change and people will eventually give my shit a chance," he said. "That’s why I’m working so hard on this album, not to please others, but I’m just really trying, bro, to show people that, like, I’m not just f---ing bad!”

Lil Boat continued: "I’m not a joke. I’m not making fun of hip-hop or being disrespectful. It’s not play rap, it’s as real as anything.”
