Yeat is a relatively new rapper to the scene, but his concert in New York was packed. All of his fans were popping off during the setlist, and there is no doubt that he is only up from here. Firstly, Yeat began his career as Lil Yeat in 2015. However, he has deleted all of his songs from back then off the internet. His official introduction was not until 2018, when he released "Brink," on the Elevator youtube channel. He had his big break on TikTok in 2021. So far, he has released three studio albums and an EP, as well as a mixtape. His newest album was called Afterlyfe, released Feb 24. The name is a play on words for his EP, Lyfe.
Yeat is currently on tour around America, and he hit New York last night. He was so popular there that there was barely even any room to stand, as shown by the clips below. Despite the lack of legroom, however, people were still able to have a great time.
Yeat's Music And Fans
Yeat has talked in the past about how he uses LSD to help him create his music, and it shows. The backing beats to his raps are very trippy and unusual. The biggest example of this is his use of a bell in some of his songs. His rapping and lyrics are not the greatest, despite what his fans say. It is mostly mumble rap with lyrics that do not make sense and seem to be a train of thought more than an actual decision to put them in. He could be rapping about doing crime at one point in the song, then the next it could be about his Tonka trucks. Despite that, though, his fans know the lyrics by heart and sang them with him during the concert.
Yeat's fans are just as strange as his lyrics are. They talk as if they worship Yeat and that his songs cured their cancer. It is hard to tell if they are just sh*tposting or if they actually like him that much. It is especially difficult since he grew his fan base off of TikTok, so they are mostly very young and are still figuring out how to interact online. Despite the majority of them being young, there was still enough that were old enough to be able to show up for the concert.
