The tracklist is obviously stacked with features

Lil Yachty shared the official tracklist on March 5, and it’s official – there are gonna be some insane guest artists on Lil Boat 2. Offset and Quavo of Migos appear on multiple tracks, Lil Pump makes an appearance, as does XXL Class of 2017 Freshmen Ugly God and PnB Rock, Trippie Redd, Lil Baby, and more.


King Boat recently linked up with Quavo on “Ice Tray,” with hilarious visuals mocking Joe Budden.

He will also collaborate with “Gucci Gang” rapper Lil Pump, which makes sense considering Yachty hopped on Pump’s track “Back” from the latter’s self-titled debut mixtape.
