Yella Beezy (HITCO)
4/22/19

WHAT IT IS: Months ago, rapper Yella Beezy was barely known outside of Dallas, but that’s all changed thanks to his hit record, “That’s on Me,” which went #1 at mainstream Rap/R&B radio. He’s since been deemed an “Emerging Artist” by Billboard and brought out on high-profile tours for both Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s OTR II Tour and Meek Mill’s Motivation Tour. He’s accumulated more than 350m views on YouTube, with 100m+ views coming from videos for “That’s on Me” and “That’s on Me Remix.” His debut project, Ain’t No Goin Bacc, debuted at #6 on the iTunes hip-hop chart, as his music garnered 235m+ streams. It’s no wonder why top talent like Pharrell, Chris Brown, Quavo, Timbaland and Gucci Mane are all looking to work with this star on the rise.
