Yadda Man Recruits Mick Jenkins, Dizzy Wright, And More For ‘Jacket Weather’ Album



Yadda Man Jacket Weather

Yadda Man has combined the bitter cold of the Midwest with the piercing pain of heartbreak on his latest LP entitled Jacket Weather.

Inspired by past trauma and heartache endured while uncovering the cold and harsh realities of life, Yadda Man’s concise 10-track album is imbued with a sobering punch of earnest lyrical ferocity. Yadda Man, whose real name is Kenyatta Thomas, also managed to artfully orchestrate several standout features on the record. 

Along with he and Chicago MC Mick Jenkins’ retrospective-themed collaboration “Do You Remember,” Yadda Man connects with Omaha-based vocalist Ria Gold on the standout track “Cream M.D.C.T” and also breathes fire on the Dizzy Wright-assisted record “Outta Sight.”

The true hallmark of Jacket Weather, though, lies in how Yadda Man comes to terms with his demons while continuously tapping into new flows and cadences throughout the entire project.

He appears courageously vulnerable from the top of the project on opening tracks such as “Bundle Up,” where Yadda retraces the steps he took, ultimately leading to a rift between him and his father. In fact, it’s on that same track where Yadda Man opens up about his move from his native Ohio to Omaha over ten years ago and how difficult the transition was for him.

“Ugly chick from the block said she was the prettiest thing in the city/I thought Omaha had no women/So uncomfortable I broke down over a box of Popeyes chicken,” he raps.

Then, there are records such as “Cold World,” where Yadda Man details the treacherous tale of deceit that has unfurled throughout his life’s journey thus far. The vulnerability and genuine artistry Jacket Weather exudes brings Yadda Man’s productive 2022 campaign full circle. In addition to releasing the deluxe edition of his fan-favorite project JiMMY, Yadda Man has delivered several standout visuals including the video for his breakout single “Top Tier,” which has amassed well over 15,000 views in mere months. 

Even more importantly, the album marks the dawn of a new chapter in Yadda Man’s career as Jacket Weather serves as his third joint-effort release between his Off Brand Music Group imprint and former Maybach Music Group artist Stalley’s fledging label Blue Collar Gang. Since as early as 2019, Yadda Man has been locked in with the Stall God as he sharpens his pen in an effort to become a true lyrical assassin. However, it should come as no surprise that Yadda Man has elevated to once again upon the release of his latest project. 

Since delivering his debut release in 2019, he’s gone on to open for artists such as Wocka Flocka, Jarren Benton, and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, among others. Yadda Man has also received co-signs from artists such as Slim Jxmmi and Kato The Producer and was even offered a spot as an opening act for 2000s Hip Hop legend Afro Man.
