Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty has finally penciled in his Lil Boat 2 release date. Coincidentally, the rap rookie’s highly-anticipated project is arriving on the anniversary of Notorious B.I.G.‘s death.

Yachty went to Instagram last night (February 20) to show off the project’s artwork and drop date.

In 2016, Yachty defended initially calling Notorious B.I.G. overrated during an interview.








Last month, buzz developed about Yachty promising he had finished the underground effort.

Weeks prior, Yachty crushed fans’ hearts after announcing a setback in its release.

“I’m not gon’ lie to you guys, I know I told you guys December, I’m not gon’ lie man, I’ma tell you guys the truth. At the rate it’s looking, it’s looking like January, you know, for Lil Boat 2, I’m sorry,” Yachty says while playing Call of Duty WWII. (XXL Mag)
