Yeat may be an extremely divisive artist amongst discussions about hip hop, but his level of success is undeniable. While his 2022 was relatively small compared to his massive 2021, it was a year full of successes. With some of his biggest features to date, we’ll look back at his year.
Outsidë (ft. Young Thug) [2 Alivë]
With the release of 2 Alivë marked his debut album through Geffen Records. Featuring similar artists in his lane such as Yung Kayo, Ken Carson & SeptembersRich, we also got see him work with much larger artists. Gunna & Young Thug appear on the album as well, providing him with some his biggest songs to date. Its hard to call this album his best considering the run he had within 2021, but what Yeat delivers here is absolutely hypnotic for its runtime.
3G (ft. Lil Uzi Vert) [2 Alivë (Geëk Pack)]
Not only did he drop his debut album, he also dropped a deluxe edition. Adding an additional nine tracks, he expanded the tracklist while adding to the overall experience with appearances from Lil Uzi Vert. Featuring on two of the tracks, they are easily the standouts on the album. With explosive performances from the two of them, they true into a duo to look out for in the future.
Flawlëss (ft. Lil Uzi Vert) [Lyfë]
Yeat continued this streak with another release, an EP amounting to twelve tracks. On this, Yeat cuts the majority of the filler to give the people a short & to-the-point release. We see the return of the pre-established duo of Yeat & Uzi, but outside of this we get a release that is all him.
Rich Minion [Minions: The Rise of Gru]
Only adding to his wild year, he got a track on Minions: The Rise of Gru soundtrack. Its a track that seemingly plays into the meme of his music being nonsensical, an extremely tongue-in-cheek moment for him. Despite being on a massive soundtrack, he doesn’t sacrifice his sound in the slightest.
