Lil Yachty Net Worth

 Lil Yachty is an American hip hop recording artist who has a net worth of $8 million. He first gained recognition on the internet in 2015 for his singles “One Night” and “Minnesota” from his debut EP Summer Songs. He released his debut mixtape Lil Boat in March 2016. On June 10, 2016, Yachty announced that he had signed a joint venture record deal with Quality Control Music, Capitol Records, and Motown Records.

Lil Yachty represents an evolution in the rap and hip-hop genres towards something completely new. Although many people have labeled the genre popularized by rappers like Lil Yachty as “mumble rap,” he does not see himself as such. Instead Lil Yachty has described his music as “bubblegum trap,” and he frequently uses sound bytes from sources such as cartoon theme songs and video games. Although perhaps simplistic, his music has been well-received by various critics, who describe it as “catchy” and “fun.”

Yachty has released four studio albums, beginning with Teenage Emotions in 2017. His second and third studio albums, Lil Boat 2 and Nuthin’ 2 Prove, were released in 2018, and his most recent album, Lil Boat 3, was released on May 29, 2020. All four of his albums have charted within the top 20 of the Billboard 200, with Lil Boat 2 peaking at #2. Yachty has also released several mixtapes and EPs throughout his career. Lil Yachty is best known for his features on the 2016 multi-platinum songs “Broccoli” and “ISpy”, his eccentric hairstyle, and his optimistic image. Yachty has been nominated for a Grammy Award for his work on “Broccoli”
