Multiplatinum musician and entrepreneur Yo Gotti announced the forthcoming release of his new mixtape, I Showed U So, a Gangsta Grillz collaboration with DJ Drama on Aug. 4.
The project serves as the long-awaited, follow-up to Gotti’s acclaimed Gangsta Grillz project, I Told U So, which he released with DJ Drama in 2006 and included collaborations with Slim Thug, Young Buck, Lil Keke and more. Gotti had recently teased the announcement on Tuesday with an Instagram post dedicated to the iconic mixtape that served as a breakthrough for his career.
At the time of Gotti’s 2006 mixtape release, the Memphis native leveraged the project to speak his successes into existence. Now 17 years later, the CMG CEO is celebrating the triumphant manifestation and execution of his dreams and accomplishments.
I Showed U So also marks Gotti’s first solo music release since February 2022, when he dropped his 11th studio album, CM10: Free Game. The project, which included collaborations with Moneybagg Yo, Shenseea, Kodak Black, 42 Dugg, EST Gee, Blac Youngsta and more, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and marked the highest-charting album in his esteemed career.
To date, Gotti has landed five consecutive Top-10 album debuts on the Billboard Top 200 with I Am (2013), The Art of Hustle (2016), I Still Am (2017), Untrapped (2020) and CM10: Free Game (2022).
The announcement of his I Showed U So mixtape comes shortly after Gotti joined First Lady Dr. Jill Biden at The White House to host a Major League Soccer Youth Clinic, where they converted the White House lawn into a soccer field.
Gotti serves as the co-owner of DC United – one of the most prestigious franchises in the Major League Soccer’s history – and he participated in various festivities around the MLS All-Star Game that took place in Washington D.C.
