Even after releasing his career-elevating studio album 2 Alivë in mid-February, as well as its nine-song Geek Pack deluxe on April Fool’s Day, Yeat has not let his foot off the gas. For the past few months, the turban-donning powerhouse has made a scorching summer even hotter.
Songs like the TikTok dominant, culture-shifting “Rich Minion” with Cole Bennett and late-July’s “hollon” with Yung Kayo have kept Yeat’s name in the mouths of fans in every crevice of the hip-hop scene. This relevancy allowed for him to quickly pivot to his latest project LYFË, a 12-song EP he released at midnight on Friday (Sept. 9).
LYFË’s track list includes the project’s promotional single “Talk” (Sept. 2), as well as the sole feature Lil Uzi Vert on the opening song “Flawlëss.” Along with this, fans received another Lyrical Lemonade video attached to the project, following up Cole Bennett’s “Still Countin” and “Poppin” videos from earlier this year.
“Talk” will likely sound like a familar bop for TikTok users, Yeat stans and mostly all hip-hop lovers, considering the song’s snippet blew up on TikTok in mid-June. Used in over 50,000 videos on the app, “Talk”’s official release and inclusion on LYFË should only propel its viral appeal. Continuing his uphill ascent, Yeat and Cole Bennett linked back up for the visual to his long-teased track “Out thë way” on Friday (Sept. 9).
After posting a story in late July that revealed six potential songs for Lyfë, which included the feature from Uzi — who he collaborated with previously on songs like “Big tonka” and “3G” for Geek Pack — the Twizzy Rich bossman continued teasing the project by previewing songs like “Up off X,” which is now confirmed to be one of LYFË‘s 12 tracks.
A few of the EP’s 12 songs had previously been previewed, with the Uzi song being the most anticipated. Produced by BNYX, who has contributed instrumentals for previous Yeat hits like “Forëally / 4Ly” and “Tonka 2,” “Flawlëss” is the third collaboration between Yeat and Uzi after “Big tonka” and “3G” from Geek Pack.
After the song was revealed in a snippet of a studio session earlier this year, BNYX left a comment on a post of the video where he confirms the song’s sample comes from a Sanskrit love song. What excited fans the most for this track was the dramatic build-up and explosive first verse from Yeat.
Ahead of LYFË, Yeat did a great job of keeping his fans hungry and on the edge of their seat for new music. Now that we have certified hits like “Talk” and “Flawlëss,” along with 10 more brand new Yeat songs, all there’s left to do is celebrate another dominant showing from of one of the genre’s most exciting, generational artists.
