Lil Yachty Shares ‘Lil Boat 2’ Tracklist f/ 2 Chainz, Lil Pump, Gucci Mane & More

Lil Yachty dropped the tracklist to his upcoming album Lil Boat 2 Monday night, and it looks like he's recruited a ton of artists to be featured. Boat shared the official tracklist on his Instagram after a bit of teasing on Twitter.

 

Track list… Track list..

A post shared by King boat (@lilyachty) on Mar 5, 2018 at 8:20pm PST

The project, out this Friday, March 9, pulls big names like 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Quavo and Offset, as well as some of Yachty's contemporaries, like Lil Pump, Ugly God, and NBA Youngboy. With such a range of rappers, it'll be interesting to hear how it turns out. Before dropping the official tracklist, Yachty decided to have some fun on Twitter, seeing how many likes he could stack up from eager fans. He shared a tweet asking for 40,000 likes in order to reveal the full Lil Boat 2 lineup.

As the likes quickly rolled in, Boat did a little trolling and continued to ask for 60k, then 70k before finally releasing the tracklist. He also shared what looks to be the official cover art, picturing Yachty half-submerged in water, drenched in sunset hues, and rocking a massive chain. 

Look out for Lil Boat 2 this Friday, and in the meantime, listen to Yachty's most recent collab with Gucci Mane here.

Lil Pump Is Reportedly Being Sued for an Alleged Hit and Run

Last October, rapper Lil Pump along with his manager and some friends, allegedly got into a pretty bad car accident that left the other driver severely injured. TMZ reports that this other driver is now filing a suit against the rapper and his former label Warner Bros. Records, to cover his medical bills and damages for his injuries, pain and suffering.

In the suit, a California man claims he was driving around Los Angeles on Oct. 11, when a Bentley “violently collided” into his Nissan Pathfinder. He also states he was pulled out of the car by the rapper and his friends while still unconscious, before they took off on foot, leaving the car behind instead of sticking around to make sure he was okay. Allegedly, they only stayed long enough to pull a duffel bag from the Bentley's trunk. What the court documents don't specify is who was driving the Bentley at the time of the incident.

Lil Pump posted a selfie in a neck and wrist brace just two days after the alleged hit and run, alluding to his possible involvement in the accident. This is far from Pump's first brush with the law. Just last month, Pump was arrested for discharging a firearm in his home after three men were allegedly seen “jimmying” the front door before the shot was fired. Police would later conclude the shots came from inside Pump's home and found the handgun underneath his balcony.

Smokepurpp Speaks on the Hip-Hop Generation Gap and Mumble Rap Critics

Smokepurpp doesn't give a fuck what you think. That much will be clear if you've spent any time watching his and Lil Pump's adventures on social media. Their raw and reckless energy is part of what their fans like so much about the two artists, and that same energy has them Tweeting things like “Bitch I'm better than j Cole. Fuck all that lyrical shit” (Lil Pump, 2016) and teasing a J. Cole diss track.

In a new interview with Montreality, Smokepurpp makes clear that none of this should be taken too seriously. “Nowadays everything is kind of a troll, so people know it's trolling, but if you don't, we don't care, Pump doesn't care,” he says. He goes on to remind critics of younger artists that music is always evolving, and that's just natural.

“The OGs that are around right now don't sound like the OGs that were around before them. We don't sound like our OGs and when we're the OGs, the younger people are not going to sound like us. Music is art, there's no specific way to make art, you could do what you want, you could grab a mic and fart on that sh*t and go viral. If we want to mumble rap, we can mumble rap.”

Smokepurpp also speaks on Lil Peep, his favorite rapper 50 Cent, chasing your dreams, and more. Watch the interview below and then check out what happened when we had Smokepurpp on Trending Topics.
