Yo Gotti is having one of the best years of his career, and now he gets to add a new accomplishment to his growing and extensive list. “Rake It Up” featuring Nicki Minaj is Gotti’s first top 10 entry on the Billboard Hot 100.
According to Billboard, Yo Gotti’s “Rack It Up” jumped 14 spaces from No. 24 to 10. “Rake It Up” is also Minaj’s 14th top 10 entry, which is a record for the most by a female rapper.
The song’s bump can best be attributed to the release of the seductive visuals last week. “Rake It Up” is technically Gotti’s song, but Minaj easily steals the show. Throughout the visual, Nicki can be seen twerking as she holds a rake in a pastel-colored community, racing against Blac Chyna in a pink Lamborghini and twerking in a kiddie pool.
Yo Gotti has been hard at work in 2017, and it’s finally paying off. He received the key to Memphis, dropped an entire mixtape with Mike WiLL Made-It, titled Gotti Made-It and successfully navigated a tense beef with Young Dolph. The buzzing Southern artist also revealed some little-known facts in the XXL column “Doin’ Lines.” Gotti’s favorite Memphis rap album is 8Ball & MJG’s Comin’ Out Hard, he hates cats and his favorite beat of all time is DMX’s “What These Bitches Want.”
