Lil Yachty launched his A Safe Place podcast in June – and apparently, his sole motivation was to make his best friend and co-host, Mitch, a rich man. Following Drake’s viral interview, Lil Boat was a guest on comedian Bobbi Althoff’s The Really Good Podcast for a new episode that dropped on Thursday (July 27).
Among the many random topics, the Atlanta-based music maker discussed his new show and explained why he launched it. “I did [start a podcast],” he confirmed. “I did it for my best friend. I did it because I wanted to make him rich.”
When Bobbi asked if it’s working, Lil Yachty replied: “Not yet. But I mean, shit. I don’t know. We got our first sponsor, we got a pretty good signing deal. So he’s not rich but he has more money than he started with.”

On a recent episode of A Safe Place featuring streamer Kai Cenat, Yachty revealed his regret for dropping $100,000 on a Disney World vacation date with a certain woman in the past.
“The overall of that trip wasn’t trickin’, [it] wasn’t for her, but it was to go big and I kinda went a little insane,” Lil Yachty said. “That thing specifically is I spent $100,000 to go to Disney World. I regret it because we weren’t dating and it just didn’t go anywhere.”
Although, Yachty enjoyed the Disney World magic but admitted he may have gone too far for a simple date to impress this certain romantic interest. “But it was fire — it was my experience too, it was crazy — but it was insane,” he added.
Lil Yachty has been tight-lipped about his dating situation as of late, but he did welcome a daughter in October 2021 with his then-girlfriend, Selangie.
“The mother of my child is Dominican and Puerto Rican, so she loves Selena — she plays her a lot,” Yachty told Billboard in March. “[We watch] the Selena movie with Jennifer Lopez a shit ton and a lot of Disney movie shit, like Frozen, Lion King, and that type of vibe.”
On the music side, Lil Yachty made his pivot to psychedelic rock with his Let’s Start Here album, which arrived in January and reached No. 9 on the Billboard 200.
