Setting the pace and changing the game with every subsequent album, Future, the multiplatinum, record-setting hip-hop innovator and prolific cultural force released two albums in February of 2017 becoming the first artist to release two Billboard 200 chart topping albums in consecutive weeks including the #1 charting album Hndrxx.
The 19-year-old Atlanta native, Lil Yachty, is proudly genre-defying, mining hip-hop, alternative, indie sounds as well as his hometown Atlanta trap DNA to solidify his mosaic approach with his first studio album Teenage Emotions. Prior to the album’s release, Lil Yachty released the mixtape Lil Boat with platinum lead single One Night. In addition, Lil Yachty has lent his musical talents to The Coca-Cola Company and Target of which he can be seen in their commercials.
