Although some may consider 2018 Rich The Kid’s “breakout year,” that simply isn’t accurate. The rapper’s been consistently buzzing for several years through the Rich Forever mixtapes and his work with the Migos, but this year, he obtained the commercial success he’s sought after throughout his career. The rapper is getting ready to release the follow-up to The World Is Yours in January. Today, he unleashes his new single, “Splashin.”
It would appear as if Rich The Kid is officially kicking off the campaign for his upcoming album The World Is Yours 2. The rapper released his new single, “Splashin” earlier today, although the single was initially supposed to drop last week. Rich The Kid hops on a lurky, bass-heavy beat and delivers his signature choppy flow with drip-heavy bars. This serves as the first single we’ve heard from RTK since he dropped his YG collab, “Mo Paper” in October. It’s unsure if either singles will appear on The World is Yours 2.
Rich The Kid has been hyping up his upcoming project throughout the year. A few months ago, the rapper said that his album will be “100 times better” than Kanye West’s Yandhi album. It’s a bold claim, but if Rich The Kid is confident in his product, we’re excited to see if it ends up living up to the expectations he set.
