(October 10, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) – Multiplatinum Memphis rapper and CMG mogul Yo Gotti will release his brand new album, I Still Am [CMG/Epic Records], in stores and at all digital retailers on Friday October 27, 2017. The pre-order just went live this morning at this link, and it unlocks immediate grat downloads of the platinum smash “Rake It Up” [feat. Nicki Minaj] and the scorching hot new single “Juice” produced by Ben Billions who also produced the #1 platinum selling hit “Down In The DM.”
Flooding social media and the streets, the rapper personally uncovered the title and artwork on his channels. Then, the roll out took over Miami. A fleet of Rolls Royce’s proudly sported the cover as video trucks canvased neighborhoods. Fans chased down towels, glow-sticks, t-shirts, and more. This guerilla tactic set the stage for Gotti to deliver an explosive performance tonight at the BET Hip Hop Awards where he drops a medley of “Rake It Up” and “Juice.” Be sure to tune in at 8pm local time!
“Juice” has already begun to heat up airwaves. Radio One world-premiered the song as part of its coveted “New and Now” segment, jamming it every hour from 10am-8pm today. It officially impacts everywhere on Monday October 16.”
I Still Am serves as the anxiously awaited sequel to Gotti’s seminal 2013 opus I Am—which yielded the platinum hits “I Know” [feat. Rich Homie Quan] and “Act Right” [feat. Jeezy & YG]. Like all proper blockbusters, I Still Am builds on the legacy of the original, but hits harder than ever before. After the raw spitting on “Betrayal,” our star delivers another bona fide banger in the form of “Save It For Me”[feat. Chris Brown & Meek Mill] while “One on One” [feat. Meek Mill & YFN Lucci] showcases three of hip-hop’s best and brightest talents. “Yellow Tape” [feat. 21 Savage] cautions the competition with unbreakable mic bravado, and “Oh Yeah” [feat. French Montana] bares the DNA of a smash. Check out the full tracklisting below!
“Rake It Up” also shows no signs of stopping or slowing down. Recently minted platinum by the RIAA,Gotti ignited late night television on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a powerhouse performance of the track. To date, it has raked up over 65 million Spotify streams and 89 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting.

After quietly and passionately grinding for over 15 years, Yo Gotti’s hustle paid off big time in 2016. His fifth full-length album, The Art of Hustle [CMG/Epic Records], captured #4 on the Billboard Top 200, marking his highest chart bow yet. It spawned the platinum-selling smash “Down In The DM,” which not only dominated radio, but it even entered the modern lexicon as a popular phrase! In between TV performances and appearances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, The Real, and BET, he played to sold out crowds every night on The Endless Summer Tour with G-Eazy, Logic, and YG all summer long. He capped the year off with the explosive White Friday. 2017 saw him light up the road with Meek Milland turn up with another smash “Rake It Up” [feat. Nicki Minaj].
Now, I Still Am stands out as the ultimate hip-hop sequel and Gotti’s boldest work to date.
