Lil Yachty worked with many amazing artists over the years, and his next big collaboration will be the most surprising one yet. The Grammy-nominated rapper revealed that he’s gearing up for the release of a collaborative album with the British singer James Blake.

Lil Yachty teased the release of his collaborative album Bad Cameo in a clip shared on social media and explained how his partnership with Blake came to be.

“I think James has worked with a quite substantial amount of hip hop artists, but this project is so left for both of us. Then, aside from the one picture that James posted, which he doesn’t have many followers actually, I don’t think people know that we know each other exist,” he explained.

Blake seemingly confirmed the news by reposting Lil Yachty’s video, in addition to sharing several articles announcing their partnership. His last studio album Playing Robots into Heaven came out last year and produced singles “Big Hammer”, “Loading”, and “Tell Me”.

Lil Yachty has recently teased collaborations with several other artists, including Fred Again and Overmono, plus “When We Die (Can We Still Get High?)” ft. Yungblud. He also experimented with different genres, including psychedelic rock and funk, on his last album Let’s Start Here.
