Polo G Unveils 'Hall of Fame 2.0' Tracklist With Lil Baby, Speaks On "Piano G" Trolls
| LAST UPDATE 11/24/2021
Looking to end the year on a strong note, Polo G is about to drop the '2.0' deluxe for 'Hall of Fame,' which arrived back in June.
This extended third album is set to feature 14 songs and a handful of notable guests: Lil Baby, Moneybagg Yo, NLE Choppa, YungLiV and Lil Tjay.
One track catching fans' attention is "Piano G." Around the time 'Hall of Fame' dropped, internet trolls began to call the Chicago rapper "Piano G," referencing his affinity for rapping over piano-looped beats.
Polo claimed earlier that those trolling him are often the same ones buying tickets to his shows and acting like real fans. "On my dead homie, let me come to your city right now and do a show. He gon' be in the crowd singin' my s**t word for word," Polo said.
"He gon' ask his momma for the extra money to buy a meet-and-greet, and when he shake my hand at the meet-and-greet he gon' be like, 'Polo, you the GOAT, bro.' But when he get back home, he gon' get back on his trollin' s**t and say, 'Piano G,' and all bunch of little weak s**t, little lame s**t."
He spoke to Complex about his mindset while recording 'Hall of Fame.' "My mentality was to kill – Nah, it’s always to kill – but my mentality was to show that I’m evolving as an artist, trying new things, not being afraid to use different beats or try different flows, and just stepping outside the box a little more than I did last time."
'Hall of Fame' sold 143k equivalent units in its first week and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 ahead of Migos' 'Culture III,' giving Polo his first chart-topping album. The 22-year-old told The Breakfast Club in June he wanted to be "more instrument-oriented" with his next release.
Polo G is also celebrating the fact that multiple charges stemming from a June assault case involving a cop in Miami have been dropped, per TMZ.
