"Rake It Up" is a song by Yo Gotti and Mike WiLL Made-It featuring Nicki Minaj from Gotti's ninth studio album I Still Am from which it was released as the lead single on June 1, 2017. The track is also from Gotti's collaborative mixtape with Mike WiLL Made-It, Gotti Made-It. The track marks the fourth collaboration between Minaj and Gotti.

Background and release

After collaborating on "5 Star" (Remix), "Coca Coca" and "Down in the DM" (Remix); "Rake It Up" marks the fourth time Yo Gotti and Nicki Minaj have worked together on a recording. To promote the song, Gotti has, on May 30, 2017, teased the song on his Snapchat during a private boat party. Minaj also played a snippet of the song on May 31, 2017 via her Instagram account, confirming that the track would be released the following day at midnight (EST). Soon after the song was announced, critics wrote how Minaj was probably trying to "steal a little of her ex-boyfriend's (Meek Mill) thunder", since he was very recently featured on another Yo Gotti song called "Top Lookin Down". On June 1, 2017, the song premiered online and was released worldwide as a digital download.
