Lil Yachty Tells Fans When to Expect His Next Project
Lil Yachty's debut studio album is coming in December. Lil Boat makes the announcement in a new interview with WE 96.3 Portland.
You can watch the interview, which consists of an audience Q&A session, above via YouTube. Yachty talks about the upcoming album around the 3:10 mark of the video. He explains that he doesn't yet have any tracks for the album, and that he's going to craft the project from scratch as soon as he gets off tour.
Yachty says, "I have so many amazing songs that we never put out. But we've been on tour, and I keep trying to record on tour but I keep losing my voice. And it's just hard for me to record, 100 percent. So once I get off tour on the 18th, we're really just gonna lock in and just start completely fresh. So there's no songs: we're really just gonna make it in three or four weeks."
The interview spans many topics, including dream collaborations (Chris Martin of Coldplay, Kid Cudi, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Mike Dean, Lil B), how fame changed Yachty's life (but didn't change him as a person), and favorite foods (pepperoni pizza, pizza sticks, pizza rolls, anything pizza-related). He also talks about how, as soon as he got rich, Lil Boat went and bought everything he could never get before fame. In other Yachty-related news, the 19-year-old Atlanta artist just hopped on Dean Blunt's "Meditation (Remix)."
