Simultaneously street and country with an elastic, no-nonsense flow, Yella Beezy represents the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. Active since the early 2010s, he released several mixtapes before breaking through when his 2017 track "That's on Me" became a slow-burning hit. His subsequent full-length, 2018's Ain't No Goin' Bacc, hit the top half of the Billboard 200 album chart.
Beezy has released several mixtapes, including Lil Yella Mane (2012), Country Rap Tunes (2015), Lite Work (2015), and Broke Nights Rich Days (2017). The second volume of Lite Work (also 2017) featured "That's on Me," a track with a video viewed well over four million times within four months of release. The track gradually picked up radio airplay throughout America, becoming a sleeper hit. Beezy's momentum continued with the March 2018 upload of an official clip for the Lil Baby collaboration "Up One," another track off Lite Work, Vol. 2. Its views exceeded 1.5 million in less than a week. After signing with indie label HITCO, Beezy released Ain't No Goin' Bacc in November of 2018. The release included a star-studded version of "That's on Me" featuring 2 Chainz, T.I., Jeezy, and others. ~ Andy Kellman
