Today, platinum-certified and critically acclaimed Atlanta rapper and singer YFN Lucci releases his highly anticipated full-length debut, Ray Ray From Summer Hill [Think It’s A Game Records/Warner Bros. Records], at all digital retailers. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
YFN Lucci has quickly cemented himself at the forefront of hip-hop. He has joined forces on sizzling collaborations with everybody from Jim Jones and T.I. to Yo Gotti. Moreover, he’s delivered a steady stream of explosive music. Just last month, his Freda’s Son EP dramatically heightened anticipation for the release of Ray Ray From Summer Hill and served up a handful of hits.
Next week, YFN Lucci heads down to Austin, TX for a true SXSW takeover. On March 14th, he’ll appear at the Pandora Showcase and Welcome to the South, while performing at Beer & Tacos March 15th and SXSW Takeover March 16th. Known for his unforgettable and explosive performances, YFN Lucci also reveals the details for his upcoming headline run—the Ray Ray From Summer Hill Tour.
With special guests and openers being announced in the coming weeks, the tour kicks off April 12th in Norfolk, VA. Check out the full itinerary below.
YFN Lucci introduced his debut album with the red-hot single “Boss Life” [feat. Offset]. Last month, YFN Lucci brought the house down at the BET Social Awards with a high-energy and hard-hitting performance of the song. Online, it’s quickly nearing the 5-million mark on Spotify and 4 million views on YouTube. The album boasts the brand-new banger “Street Kings” [feat. Meek Mill] as well as the emotionally charged “Time For It” and powerful “No More.”
A versatile powerhouse, Ray Ray From Summer Hill highlights not only his rhymes but also his impressive vocal range and delivery as he seamlessly switches from huge hooks to punchy flows. There’s nobody like YFN Lucci.
Singing and rapping with the same fiery force, YFN Lucci represents the next evolution of the Atlanta sound. Inking a deal with Think It’s A Game Records in 2014, he quietly developed into one of his city’s most powerful voices. Following the success of Wish Me Well, he unleashed Wish Me Well 2 in 2016. It yielded the platinum-certified smash “Key to the Streets” [feat. Migos & Trouble], which amassed over 43.2 million Spotify streams, turned up a high-profile remix with Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, and Quavo, and landed on XXL’s “50 Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2016” and Vibe’s “The 60 Best songs of 2016” list. Forbes proclaimed YFN Lucci among “5 Breakout Hip-Hop Artists to Watch This Summer” and Billboard dubbed him one of the “Top 10 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2017”—he’s lived up to those claims with his EP Long Live Nut, and now Ray Ray From Summer Hill, (Think It’s A Game Records/Warner Bros. Records).
