Lil Yachty Buys His Favorite Fan a $10,000 Sailing Team Necklace
Lil Yachty, the self-professed "King of Teens" has always valued his supporters. Last week, he went above and beyond for some of his biggest fans, sending them exclusive apparel and even gifting one of them with an icy Sailing Team chain.
TMZ reports the good deed kicked off last month. It all started with a tweet from Yachty, on the afternoon of Christmas Eve. "@daniellecombs_ & @GrimesYachty I have expensive & rare gifts for you two because y’all are my two most favorite fans," he wrote. "I know yall will like."
He explained in a later tweet that their haul should be considered a Christmas gift, even though it was set to arrive later.
One of the fans, 17-year-old Danielle Combs, got the best gift of the bunch. In addition to Quality Control, Yachty, and Lil Boat-designed Nautica gear, she received a Sailing Team chain, reserved for only Yachty's closest friends. The necklace is valued at $10,000, has 184 diamonds and actually has Danielle's name engraved on the back.
She shared a picture of the charm on Instagram, with the caption, "Officially Gang ⚓️ Thank You @lilyachty Sailing Team Sh*t !!!" There's also a possibility that she got the chain due to a drawing she made of Yachty in the past; Danielle is a talented artist, in addition to her Sailing Team fanhood.
Even while showing love to his adoring fans, Yachty has been busy this month. He confirmed that his upcoming album, Lil Boat 2, is completed, and that he plans to drop a collab tape with Lil Pump within the next two months. Boat will also be performing at Yams Day tomorrow, A$AP Mob's annual tribute concert to their fallen leader, A$AP Yams.
