At least one of the songs will likely appear on Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”
PnB Rock just shared his new project Catch These Vibes, an 18-track effort that features collaborations with the likes of Lil Yachty, Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and more. In an interview with Billboard, the melodically-inclined rapper shared some of the stories behind the many collaborations, and in the process, revealed more music that will be making it’s way out soon.
According to PnB, he and Lil Yachty are very comfortable working together, so they linked again when both rappers were in New York, recording Catch These Vibes’ “iRun” and a few other tracks. “We made three songs that night and “iRun” was one of my favorites,” he said. “We ended up putting it on the tape. He’s going to put one of the other songs on the tape that he coming out with, and we got another song with [Ski Mask the] Slump God, and I think he’s going do something with that song.”
Yachty has announced that his Lil Boat 2 tape will be released soon, which is likely the project PnB is referring to. The two previously collaborated on “All Day,” earlier this year.
PnB also shared the story of “TTM,” which was originally a producer-based collaboration he says was “like a Diplo type of thing.” When he decided to keep the song for himself instead, he decided to add some more star power to the track. “I then felt like it could go to a higher level, so I reached out to one of my friends, Wiz,” he said. I sent it over to him to see what he thought about it. He sent it back the next day and that shit was done. He fucked with it OD.”
The Philly rapper should continue his prolific streak with plans of a joint project with Desiigner being announced earlier this month. In July, he earned his first platinum single with “Selfish.” He appeared on this year’s XXL Freshman List alongside Playboi Carti, Kamaiyah, and more. Catch These Vibes is PnB’s second full-length release of 2017, following January’s GTTM: Going Through The Motions.
