Following its Boiler Room debut alongside song producer Trey Kams and ScHoolboy Q during Kal Banx’s TDE presented LA set, Yakiyn aka Yak The Mack unloads his self-directed music video for “Petty.” If the Dallas native looks familiar it’s most likely because photos of him modeling Kanye’s Yeezy Season 3 collection made it to the front page of GQ a few years back; fast forward to today and he’s premiering his first single of 2023 and I can assure you it was well worth the wait.
Reconnecting with Trey Kams, instrumentalist for Burna Boy and Doechii, the track finds the fashion-forward Alternative Hip-Hop act guiding fans through a tantalizing musical journey rooted in righteous fun. The ultimate soundtrack for those looking to ignite their night with passion and allure, “Petty” is an irresistible invitation to indulge in the nonchalant side of life.
“The song embodies freedom with my words and gives an introduction to my current head space. You can be the superhero, but in someone else’s eyes you can be the supervillain and that’s okay because I’m only trying to be me. It’s me coaching myself – the only competition I see is myself. I’m only worried about what I’m on,” says the Texas triple-threat when speaking about the record’s significance in a press statement.
Born and raised in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Yakiyn’s journey from an unknown talent to a burgeoning star is as inspiring as his music itself. His remarkable musical talent but also his commitment to pushing artistic boundaries compelled audiences worldwide to tune in to his 2022 release “STFU” which garnered 425K+ Spotify streams and landed him in DSP editorial playlists with over 1M+ listeners as an independent artist.
He is a fearless innovator, constantly experimenting with new sounds, production techniques, and visual aesthetics- gaining the approval of notable creatives such as Leon Bridges, Smino, and Monte Booker. This willingness to explore uncharted territory has earned him a rapidly growing fan base and the respect of peers within the industry.
