No matter where the chips fall, there will always be a rapper declaring themselves to be the GOAT. It feels like a rite of passage at this point, with the iconic “Greatest Of All Time” acronym no longer appearing to factor in the “all time” part. Either way, who are we to hate on the confidence of youth? For Polo G, his upcoming album The Goat may very well be foreshadowing to his masterplan, should things play out the way he intends them to. Yet by naming the project as such, let’s be honest — there’s an added sense of pressure that comes with it.

While it’s impossible to judge an album on the basis of a tracklist alone, it does seem to indicate what type of sonic journey will be undertaken. From the look of it, Polo G will be spending plenty of time standing tall by his own merits, with only five of the sixteen tracks having guest appearances. On that note, look for Mustard, Juice WRLD, Lil Baby, Stunna 4 Vegas, BJ The Chicago Kid, and NLE Choppa to play supporting roles on this go-around.
