Already announced for Australia’s Splendour In The Grass festival 2017, rap’s next big thing, Lil Yachty will make his New Zealand debut this July playing at The Hunter Lounge in Wellington.
Lil Yachty hit the charts with his 2015 singles ‘Minnesota’ and ‘1 Night’ before his ‘Summer Songs 2’ mixtape debuted at #3 on iTunes. With all eyes firmly on him, influential XXL Magazine declared him ‘rap’s next big thing’ following his hit single 'Broccoli' reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs Chart.
His recent debut headline tour The Boat Show Tour was a sell out across North America before joining fellow up-and-comers Rae Sremmurd’s wildly successful Sremmlife II Tour.
With the release of his debut album Teenage Emotions in May, expect the hype to follow Lil Yachty as the as the Sailing Team captain heads all the way down under this July.
The young Atlanta native’s previous mixtapes of last year, Lil Boat and Summer Songs 2, both made waves in the industry, but there were some high expectations going in for the rapper’s debut this year. A majority of Teenage Emotions sees Yachty going solo on the lengthy tracklist, but there were some features included on the project such as Migos, Diplo, YG, Grace and more. Teenage Emotions debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Albums Chart.
