In the span of just one year, West Philadelphia native Yak Yola has become one of the most promising talents in the city. His track “Demon Flow” hovers around 300k views on Youtube while his tracks “Blow”, “All In”, “Take Off”, and “Go Getta” range between 120 and 220 thousand views on the same platform.
Yola has been cosigned by Meek Mill and comedian/social influencer Gille Da King and made music with New York up and comers Sheff G and Sleepy Hollow.
Outside of music, he’s partnered with fashion brand Face Your Fears which has exploded in the past year becoming a staple of Philadelphia streetwear. The rapper rocks a custom iced out chain that dawns their signature FYF logo.
Alamo Records recognized all of this potential and signed the young artist a couple months ago. After months of anticipation, Yak Yola dropped his mixtape “Misunderstood” on Wednesday.
