Lil Yachty's smash hit Poland went viral in 2022. But the rapper just let it slip he had no intention for the track to ever see the light of day. That's right. Here's what the rapper said.

This week, he dropped jaws during his sit-down with Zane Lowe when discussing a track off of his sick new album Let's Start Here. Yup--he revealed how the unexpected success of Poland had him really feeling some type of way and PISSED OFF to say the least! "That was irritating," he said. "I was pissed because I made Poland while making this album on a day when they were mixing and I was in the other room just bored with the homies. I would've never dropped Poland — ever — because I wanted to pivot myself into this. So I was really irritated when it dropped, but I'm so grateful it did. Like I said, I really don't know what I do next. I don't know if I'm a do this again or do more rap."

Quality Control CEO Pee jumped on it and helped make this unprecedented moment happen - a rapper being honored from Her Majesty The Queen of Polska? Yeah. Super lit news for sure!

Pee's ridiculous scheme paid off big time - he texted Lil Yachty and it turns out, he was SHOCKED that the two even knew about each other! After a lot of investigation, an "Oh s***" moment happened from none other than Yachy himself.
