Will Polo G's sophomore album, 'Hall Of Fame,' become his first #1 album on the Billboard 200 chart? We'll have to wait a couple of weeks to find out, as the Chicago rapper shared that he's officially dropping on Friday, June 11th.

"My goals for 'Hall Of Fame' was just to make sure that I could show my diversity as an artist," he told his nearly 8 million IG followers via the below teaser clip. "Really, like, elevating my sound. For the people to hear somethin' that I ain't never did before."

Few artists have as much buzz surrounding them as Polo G, who scored his first #1 hit on the Hot 100 with the catchy and motivational "Rapstar" in April. His debut album, 'The GOAT,' debuted at #2 on Billboard a little over a year ago, pushing 99k units.

Most recently, he tapped Lil Wayne for the single "Gang Gang," which hit #33 on this week's Hot 100. Weezy clearly brought his A-game, prompting Polo to confess that he's the only artist to have ever "walked me down" on a track.

Polo then explained that he used to study Wayne's lyrics. At 38 years old, Weezy is still delivering tongue twisters: "Call me Capalotty, Big Slimalini, Lil Slime Gotti / That ain't the 'Ghini, lil b**** that's the 'Gatti!"

But the 22-year-old will face stiff competition on the charts from two of his favorite collaborators, Lil Durk and Lil Baby. They're set to make a major splash when they deliver their joint project, 'The Voice of the Heroes,' a week earlier on Friday, June 4th.
