20 of the Best Lyrics From YFN Lucci’s ‘Long Live Nut’ EP
Most artists have to endure a gradual progress of showing and proving before they earn the attention beyond their inner circle and are able to jump onto the fast-track to success, but YFN Lucci has not had those problems. In an Atlanta scene filled to its brim with promising talent and buzz-worthy upstarts, Lucci has managed to make a name for himself and transcend the city's borders rather quickly, becoming a popular name among rap fans that have taken a liking to his distinctive wail and testimonials inspired by the trap and the lifestyle and circumstances that surround it.
First making waves after signing to Think It's a Game Entertainment, YFN Lucci didn't take long to prove that his backers had made the right decision by scooping him up, dropping his debut mixtape, Wish Me Well, in 2014, which instantly garnered the young rapper a buzz among industry tastemakers. Wish Me Well was a successful introduction, but YFN Lucci would truly hit the ground running in 2016, with Wish Me Well 2, which would further help establish the Summerhill rep as one of the brightest talents yet to blow on the mainstream.
Spawning the hit single "Key to the Street," which reached No. 70 on the Billboard Hot 100, Wish Me Well 2 built YFN Lucci's hype up to a fever pitch, resulting in high-profile features alongside the likes of 2 Chainz, Meek Mill and Yo Gotti. After raising the bar in 2016, YFN Lucci looks to place his stamp on this year in a big way with his debut EP, Long Live Nut, which was inspired by the rapper's late mentor. Boasting features from Rick Ross, Boosie Badazz, Lil Durk, PnB Rock, Dreezy, Bigga Rankin and Trae Pound, Long Live Nut is another winner from YFN Lucci that deserves a spot in your rotation.
