Lil Yachty is the latest celebrity to venture into Esports after he was welcomed into one of the most notable teams in gaming.
FaZe Clan’s newest member is none other than rapper Lil Yachty. He announced that he was the latest FaZe clan member on stage during his set at the Rolling Loud Festival. The rapper brought up several FaZe Clan members to the stage including Rice Gum, FaZe Banks, and FaZe Temperrr who he referred to as his brothers. The group presented him with a shirt with the words ‘Welcome To FaZe Clan’ emblazoned on it. His gaming alias and Instagram handle will now be FaZe Boat much like his other nickname ‘Lil Boat.’
This should be no surprise to Lil Yachty fans as the 21-year-old tweeted that he wanted to be a member over year ago on November 5, 2017.

Lil Yachty won’t be the last celebrity inductee for FaZe as they’ve been on a recruiting spree for the last few months. They’re looking for dedicated gamers who’ll fit in with the rest of the group regardless of status, so you don’t necessarily have to be a celeb like Yachty to join.
“What FaZe really is at the end of the day is it’s a f—–g family, honestly. When people come in, I want it to be the people who want it the f—–g most,” shared FaZe Banks.
