If it is true that Pheelz has indeeed left YBNL, then this is the end of an era.
Pheelz’s relationship with YBNL is one that predates the YBNL brand itself. It started a decade ago when. Olamide exited Coded Tunez, a year after his debut, to release his second as an independent artist. Olamide’s sophomore album came later that year (2012) and it was called “Yahoo Boy No Laptop.”
Abbreviated as YBNL, it also doubled as the name of the imprint Olamide released under. As for Pheelz, he worked on most of the album making the beats for some of Olamide’s finest tracks.
That was the beginning of a relationship that would go on for years, result in three Album of the Year awards, and a Fireboy album engineered by Pheelz himself.
Since 2012, there is not YBNL project Pheelz doesn’t have a credit on. He worked on Lil Kesh‘s “YAGI” and did most of Adekunle Gold‘s earliest hits. He has been there all the way.
In recent times, though, he’s not been with YBNL. Not so much anymore. Fireboy’s “Apollo” and Olamide’s last two albums have not really had Pheelz involvement.
Also, the producer has also tried to scale his career as a singer and so doesn’t do a lot of production anymore. But that notwithstanding, Pheelz was the YBNL in-house producer for a long time. In the time he was there, a lot of people have come and gone. He is indeed the last of the original YBNL.
We will not know for sure if Pheelz has left YBNL until Fireboy releases his next album. The Pheelz involvement on that album will definitely tell us all we need to know about his current relationship with the people at YBNL and his brother, Olamide.
There’s also the distinct possibility that he never had a contract with YBNL and so was never technically a YBNL producer. In which case, he has only moved on with his career.
For now, based on speculation, I’d say Pheelz isn’t with the YBNL outfit anymore.
Well, what do y’all think?
