Rich The Kid collaborates with some of the hottest names in hip-hop in his upcoming debut album The World Is Yours.

In a tweet, the rapper revealed that the album will feature Quavo, Offset, and Take Off of Migos, Frank Ocean, and Yeezus himself, Kanye West.

Rich The Kid was responding to a tweet by The Daily Rap, which collates news about rap and hip-hop on its social media feed. The account posted the tracklist from the 25-year-old artist's upcoming album.

From the list alone, The World Is Yours will surely be topping the charts with guest performances from Kendrick Lamar, Khalid, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Swan Lee, Bryson Tiller, Jay Critch, and Rick Ross.

The album will be released on March 30.

Rich The Kid's World

The rapper has been teasing his new album The World Is Yours since last year. In October, he released the music video for "New Freezer," the lead track of the album and the product of his collaboration with multi-Grammy Award-winning rapper Lamar.

The music video (embedded below) is directed by Dave Free of the little homies and Jack Begert.

Rich The Kid, along with Lamar, also performed the song at the 2018 Brit Awards. The performance received mixed reactions, especially after Rich The Kid destroyed an orange sports car onstage as part of the choreography.

The performance was also riddled with technical issues and most of the song was bleeped out for profanity.

The song has already entered the songs chart. According to Billboard, "New Freezer" drew 15 million airplay, 12.7 million U.S. streams, and 5,000 downloads within the tracking week. As a result, Rich The Kid became the top emerging act in the United States for the first time this week.

Ahead of his album's release, Rich The Kid also provided fans a preview of his diss track aimed at Lil Uzi Vert. Although the track does not explicitly mention his fellow hip-hop artist, he took jabs at the Uzi's hit song "XO Tour Llif3" and "Money Longer." Listen to the preview below.

DJ Akademiks was also able to screencap an Instagram story from Rich The Kid that accuses Uzi of copying his style.
