Over the past few months, it has been rare for me to go a day without hearing the name YEAT, and I figured it was about time that I tapped in. Luckily, when I was hanging out with my brother over the weekend, we went down a rabbit hole of his music and I feel as if I have a very sturdy understanding of the Portland rapper’s skill set, yet he seems to surprise me on every new song he releases. Not only was it time that I got in tune, but when I saw him kicking it with Drake over the weekend as well, I knew that he was an artist that means business, and I couldn’t ignore him any longer.
I’m so glad this awakening happened too, because with his most recent Flansie and Skimayne song “Gët Busy”, he shows that he is truly a force to be reckoned with, and I am so happy that he’s on my radar now. The song itself is very diverse, giving him a foundation to show off his versatile sounds and very intriguing vocals that are constantly switching up with pretty much every line he delivers, giving us a mixture of Playboi Carti, Young Thug, and other extremely talented artists who seem to use their voice more as an instrument than anything else.
Along with this record comes a Satch Films and Jack Rottier-shot music video that is another great addition to this release, and I had to highlight that as well. Here, he takes us out to the desert where he hangs out in a very futuristic fortress of sorts, chilling by the pool and in the kitchen with the homie. As they dance around and vibe out with this remarkable song, animations bring certain objects to life, letting rocks, bottles of lean, and bells float around his vicinity, adding an interesting element to the visual.
I know I’m only getting familiar with Yeat’s music at this point, but I can stress how thoroughly impressed I am thus far. So, if you’re in the same boat as me, make sure you tap in with YEAT’s latest music video for his song “Gët Busy” before going on a YEAT spree and checking out the rest of his inventive and individualistic discography.
