Lil Yachty released his third album (and second of 2018) on Friday, October 19th. Nuthin’ 2 Prove is split into two halves, one devoted to rap and the other to softer, more melodic R&B songs, and features appearances from fellow Atlanta rappers Playboi Carti, Lil Baby, Young Nudy, Offset and Gunna.
Chicago’s Juice WRLD and Atlanta’s Trippie Redd also appear on Nuthin’ 2 Prove, and both have recorded forthcoming collaborative mixtapes with Lil Yachty, who has indicated that at least one of them will be released before the end of this year.
The 21-year-old Atlanta native has also been busy lately filming a role in How High 2, along with fellow Atlanta rapper DC Young Fly. MTV’s sequel to the 2001 stoner comedy has been filming in Atlanta.
