As fans of both artists will note, the two have collaborated in the past, including on the Lyfë opener “Flawless.” And while it’s not clear whether Yeat and Uzi have any plans in motion regarding official releases for the songs, merely being alerted to the existence of approximately 200 not-yet-heard-by-the-public tracks from the two should be enough to get fans excited.
“That’s my brother,” Yeat said of his relationship with Uzi, with whom he estimates he has “probably 200 songs” in the can. “He just knows that I’m the new wave. He’s tapping in and showing love.” Adding to this while filming an episode of Complex’s GOAT Talk, Yeat revealed he considers Uzi to be the greatest SoundCloud rapper of all time.
As Yeat explained, Uzi “did a lot for SoundCloud back in the day,” arguably more than their contemporaries.
“He put on for that shit,” Yeat said of the Philly rapper’s legacy, which remains in progress. “I think he might be one of the people who made it what it is.”
