Lil Yachty Says He Has a James Blake Collab Album ‘Bad Cameo’ Coming Soon

Blake reposted on his Instagram to confirm.

Boat’s caption simply reads, “this is real.. soon.”

The news arrives as Yachty continues a prolific run that’s seen the 26-year-old drop several singles since the release of his last full-length offering, Let’s Start Here, which arrived in January 2023. Since then, Yachty has continued his momentum with the release of singles “Strike (Holster),” “Slide,” “Solo Steppin Crete Boy,” “Tesla,” “The Secret Recipe,” and, earlier this month month, “A Cold Sunday” and its music video.

In addition, Lil Boat earned credits on Drake’s latest album For All the Dogs, contributing to standout tracks such as “What Would Pluto Do,” “Away From Home,” and “Polar Opposites.”

Blake, 35, dropped less than six months ago with the Grammy-nominated Playing Robots into Heaven. Yachty is on point by quoting Blake’s collaborators list as “substantial.” He’s got a production credit on Kanye West and Ty Dolla Sign’s new album Vultures 1, plus contributions to Travis Scott’s Utopia, Metro Boomin’s Across the Spider-Verse album, and numerous Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Kendrick Lamar projects. He’s won two Grammys thanks to contributions to Killer Mike’s Michael cut “Scientists & Engineers” and “King’s Dead” off Kendrick’s Black Panther album.
