Even though Lil Yachty's debut album is still M.I.A., that isn't stopping him and The Sailing Team from taking over Europe. On Thursday night (Jan 26), Yachty revealed on Instagram that he'll be embarking on a nine-stop tour overseas next month. 

The "Tour of Europe" will kick off Feb. 24 in London and conclude March 5 in Sweden. Earlier this month, Yachty unveiled the name of his debut album, Teenage Emotions and recently offered an update on the project on Twitter.  

"It's coming I promise, I just want it to be really fire first. Almost. Like 79% done," tweeted Yachty on Monday (Jan. 23). 

Yachty is still riding the wave of success stemming from his appearance on D.R.A.M.'s 'Broccoli" record. Not only did he notch himself a Grammy nomination, but he also was enlisted by Nautica to serve as their creative designer earlier this month. 

"Lil Yachty has such a vast and growing millennial following," said Karen Murray, president of Nautica, in a release. “We want to show a new, younger audience, in addition to our existing customer, that Nautica is a brand that offers a mix of both heritage pieces and classics pieces–clothes that you can wear for any occasion, and still look cool. We admire his genuine passion for the brand and his unique sense of style and taste level.”
