Lyfë

The rapping of LA-based MC Yeat rewards repeated listens. He’s got an accent of mysterious origin, his speech slurred and drawn out in a way that makes it hard to understand the whole of what he’s saying—which is probably the point. The production across Lyfë—the follow-up to the MC’s 29-song 2 Alivë (Geëk Pack) and his second project of 2022—is at once cacophonous and future-leaning (the lion’s share coming courtesy of Working on Dying’s Bnyx). The themes are the same ones that permeate most of Yeat’s music to date—drugs, money, that ever-dependable Tonka truck. But what he’s buried deeper therein are explanations for titles like “Flawlëss” or “Wat it feel lykë.” It’s likely best not to think too hard about them; from the sounds of things, those who do have already gotten left behind. As the MC puts it on “Krank,” “You already know who I am, little bitch/I’m man of the year.”
