Mixtape: Yella Beezy & Trapboy Freddy – I’m My Brother’s Keeper
The Two Oak Cliff, Dallas Denizens Connect for an Energetic Collection of Texas Trap Gems; Video for Opening Track “Raccs” Drops at 3 ET/12 PT
The Mixtape + Video:
Dallas rappers Yella Beezy and Trapboy Freddy are kindred spirits, connected by their shared hometown, drawly bars, and raw authenticity. Combining their complementary sensibilities for a full-length project, Yella and Freddy share verses on I’m My Brother’s Keeper, a new mixtape. Spanning 13 tracks, the mixtape springs from the rich Texas trap tradition, alternating between bass-boosted strip club bangers like “Throw Them Dollas,” aggressive street anthems like “Ride,” and come-up tales like “Raccs.”
Along with the release, Yella Beezy and Trapboy Freddy prepare to drop the music video for “Raccs,” the mixtape’s opening track. Produced by Monsta Beatz, “Raccs” is a classic-style Dirty South riders anthem, as both emcees unleash breakneck bars about their ever-increasing bankrolls. Directed by Jeff Adair, the video draws a contrast between the rappers’ early lives in Oak Cliff with their glamorous present–but no matter how far they go, they’ll always have time for their old neighborhood. Look for “Raccs” to release at 3pm ET/12pm PT on WorldstarHipHop’s YouTube channel.
Throughout the project, the two rappers exhibit an electric chemistry, playfully trading verses atop hard-hitting instrumentals from Monsta Beatz and others. The first full-length collaboration by the duo that previously connected for Yella Beezy’s “That’s On Me” (Remix), I’m My Brother’s Keeper is available to stream everywhere via HITCO/300 Ent.
“I’m My Brother’s Keeper is a moment for the city, a moment for Texas, and a moment for us to put on for the place that raised us,” says Trapboy Freddy.
Explains Yella Beezy, “You’re standing 10 toes with your brother. You ride for him. You gonna go to war for him, you will always be there for him. Anything he needs, you’re there. You’re locked in forever.”
I’m My Brother’s Keeper is the first project in a busy year for the two Oak Cliff natives. This year Yella Beezy is off to a strong start with recent releases, “Keep It In The Streets” and “Headlocc” featuring Young Thug. He’s planning to release Broke Nights Rich Days 2, the sequel to last year’s Billboard 200-charting Baccend Beezy, and Trapboy Freddy is gearing up for the release of his project Big Trap which will house his breakout single “Lil Quita”.
Stay tuned for more from Trapboy Freddy and Yella Beezy in the coming days.

Critical Praise For Yella Beezy:
“How Yella Beezy Scored a Number One Hit During the Summer of Drake” – Rolling Stone
“Yella makes rap that falls into the ever so-popular “melodic” description, but his flows and downright ability to spit set him apart from everyone else” – XXL
“Beezy brings the heat…In an era when hip hop artists are releasing albums where every song sounds pretty much the same, Yella Beezy has delivered a record that goes against the grain on his latest project, Baccend Beezy. The Southern rapper sticks to his roots as listeners can pick up influences from the region, but Beezy has a little bit of something for everyone on his latest mixtape. ” – HotNewHipHop
“He uses simple lyrics intelligently, with an infectious flow that would sound equally appropriate in a noisy nightclub or coming from a cell phone outside West End Station during rush hour.” – Dallas Observer
Critical Praise For Trapboy Freddy:
“TrapBoy Freddy slyly raps about how far he’s come…proving how deep the roster in Texas is at the moment.” – Pitchfork
“Hailing from Oak Cliff, one of South Dallas’s most recognizable hotbeds of rap talent… [Trapboy Freddy] possesses the type of sleek lyricism and formidable realness that feels primed to explode with a well-timed release.” – DJ Booth
“The trap star hailing from Dallas, Texas—Oak Cliff to be exact—has been going up recently off the strength of anthems like ‘Lit’ and ‘Lil Quita’…”’ – XXL
