Lil Yachty has fueled speculation that he and Drake could one day release a collaborative album together. The rapper recently teased the idea as something that they’ve discussed with one another in the past. During an appearance on an OGM Vlog posted to YouTube, the 26-year-old addressed the increasing demand for a full-length project from the pair.
“We’ve talked about it before… It would be nice, right?” Yachty said of the idea. However, he noted that since Drake has hinted at taking a break from music following the release of For All The Dogs, that such an album likely wouldn’t surface for years.
“I think [Drake] gon’ take a little second to breathe [first],” Yachty predicted, adding that he also plans on going on a brief musical hiatus himself. “Ima take next year to figure out my situation… And you know, we’ll look into it in the future.”

Yachty most recently appeared on Drake’s For All The Dogs album on the song “Another Late Night,” which was recently accompanied by a music video directed by Cole Bennett. The track caused a stir on social media due to Yachty’s lyric about music star Billie Eilish’s breasts, which prompted a reaction from the singer herself.
The Georgia native previously worked with Drake in 2020 on his song “Oprah’s Bank Account” featuring DaBaby, as well as on the remix to his single, “Poland,” in 2022. Earlier this year, Yachty and Drake had a conversation in which the latter spoke of making a “graceful exit” from making music and the limelight.
“I think like on a broader scale, I think I’m at the point now where I just wanna, like — I feel like maybe we talked about this the other day — but I feel like I’m kind of introducing the concept in my mind of a graceful exit,” the 37-year-old said at the time.
“This doesn’t mean an all-out retirement,” he continued. “I’ll still be around to like, you know, work with people or do a show here or there, but I’m not going to like, force myself to compete… So I guess that’s the one thing that I want for myself really badly.”
The chart-topper concluded by saying, “So I guess what’s left for me is just to find a way to gracefully — I’m not ready now — but to gracefully continue making projects that are extremely, like, interesting and hopefully cherished by people. And then to find the right time to say like, ‘I can’t wait to see what the next generation does.’”
