Lil Yachty has been riding a wave since 2016, when he dropped the mixtapes Lil Boat and Summer Songs 2.
His debut full length LP Teenage Emotions pushed out the following year, and hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200. Its followup Lil Boat 2 docked at No. 2 on the albums chart in 2018, followed soon after by Nuthin' 2 Prove.
