About Lil Yachty

Miles Parks McCollum, more commonly known as Lil Yachty, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter who was born in Mableton, Georgia. Lil Yachty’s musical style is often coined as “bubblegum trap,” using samples from cartoons and video games to create a fun, dreamy sound for his music. Lil Yachty is most widely known for hits such as “Oprah’s Bank Account,” “Yacht Club” featuring Juice WRLD and his feature on “Broccoli” by DRAM.

Lil Yachty first came onto the music scene in 2015 with his Soundcloud track “One Night.” In February of 2016, Lil Yachty debuted as a model at Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show. He then went on to release his debut mixtape Lil Boat as well as collaborate with DRAM on “Broccoli” later that same year.

Lil Yachty began his journey as a signed artist in 2016 with Quality Control Music, Capitol Records and Motown Records. His debut studio album Teenage Emotions was released in 2017. This album featured artists such as Migos, Diplo and YG, just to name a few. Lil Yachty’s most recent album Lil Boat 3 was released in May of this year.
