Yella Beezy's rise to mainstream popularity came soon after releasing his mixtape Lite Work, Volume 2 in 2017. Included in the highly acclaimed mixtape was his hit single "That's On Me" which peaked at 37 on Billboard's Hot 100 charts and earned 200M+ video views. In 2020, Yella Beezy released "Headlocc" with Young Thug, "Solid" with 42 Dugg, and "On Fleek" featuring Gunna. His 2021 viral hit “STAR” featuring Erica Banks garnered over 2 million video views. Throughout the course of his career, Yella Beezy has collaborated on tracks with Lil Baby, Gucci Mane, and Chris Brown among many others. The Dallas born rapper currently boasts over a billion combined streams across all platforms.


Yella Beezy made his name in the industry the traditional way, building up a massive local fanbase in his hometown of Dallas before winning the support of DJs across the country. Despite his achievements, Yella Beezy prides himself on staying humble. A single mother raised him after his father was murdered when Yella was just 12 years old. Coping with the deep trauma, the light-skinned adolescent known around the neighborhood as “Yella Boy” took to football and the gangland streets of Southwest Dallas. However, music proved to be Yella Beezy’s greatest calling. Rapping and recording songs since his teens, things heated up by the mid-2010s. Videos for 2014’s “No Man” and 2015’s “Trap In Designer” achieved millions of views, transforming a local mixtape rapper into a recognized talent.

He emerged in 2017 with the Gold-certified hit "That's On Me," which peaked at #1 on Urban radio, eclipsing Drake's "In My Feelings" for the top spot. In Fall 2018, Yella Beezy opened for Beyoncé and Jay-Z on the On The Run Tour, and in 2019, he had a prominent spot supporting his "Restroom Occupied" co-star Chris Brown on his Indigoat Tour. In Summer 2019, he shared Baccend Beezy, the breakout chapter in the Texas native's independent rise from obscurity to stardom. Featuring the Urban Radio Top 10 hit "Bacc At It Again" featuring Quavo and Gucci Mane, Baccend Beezy peaked at #91 on the Billboard 200 and featured appearances from Young Thug, Chris Brown, NLE Choppa, Too $hort, and more. Under his new label partnership with Asylum Records, Yella Beezy continues his rise to viral triumph with a new album slated for release in Fall 2022.
