Contents Career 2011–14: Career beginnings, Basement Musik and Shut Up and Vibe series

Yung Simmie began rapping at a young age before he started recording and releasing songs through his Soundcloud profile. In December 2011, he released his first body of work as an underground rapper entitled Purple Lady Underground Tape, a mixtape he released as an independent artiste. In early 2012, he was signed to Raider Klan Records. It was under the label he released his first official mixtapes titled G Funk Resurrection 1993-1995: Underground Tape and Tha Undergrxxxd Mixtape: XXL Freshman xf 1993 in February and May 2012 respectively. With production credits from Key Nyata, SpaceGhostPurrp, Lil Ugly Mane, with vocal features from some members of Raider Klan including long-time friend Denzel Curry; both mixtapes largely pay tribute to the gangsta-funk genre of hip hop he grew up listening to.

On January 7, 2013, he dropped the first installment of his Basement Musik series. The mixtape included singles like "No More" featuring Chris Travis, "Florida Nigga Mentality (Remix)" featuring SpaceGhostPurrp and "Basement Musik".[5] Colin Small of Potholes in My Blog literarily compared the mixtape to When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1, the fourth studio album of Three 6 Mafia. Rating the mixtape 4 out of 5, he further went on to note that "Basement Musik is a well-crafted synthesis of the neo-Memphis sounds of 2012".[6] On July 16, he released Shut Up and Vibe Vol. 1, the first installment of his Shut Up and Vibe series. The mixtape includes songs like "Lean With the Sprite" and "Disrespect" featuring vocals from SpaceGhostPurrp. Yung Simmie is credited to have featured vocals on Denzel Curry's Nostalgic 64 in a song titled "Threatz", which Mike Madden of Pitchfork Magazine listed as his top 10 individual tracks of 2013.[7] December, Yung Simmie dropped Basement Musik 2.[8] With no vocal features, the 16-track project enlists the production services of Trill Will, DJ Smokey, PurrpDogg and Yung Simmie. [9]

2015–present: Yung Smokey and Simmie Season series

On 15 January 2015, Yung Simmie released Yung Smokey, a mixtape which gained him new grounds and further earned him features in XXL and Miami New Times.[15][16] Preceding the release of Yung Smokey were two lead singles, "20/20" and "Spaceship". A Passion of the Weiss contributor was impressed with the overall production of the album and Yung Simmie's lyrical improvements. He further concluded that "Yung Smokey is the best realized of his (Yung Simmie) increasingly worthwhile album material".[17] On the 21st of March, he released "Full Metal 2" off the third installment of his Basement Musik series. The song sampled Akira Senju's "Trishas Lullaby".[18] It charted on the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart at #31 for three weeks.[10] In May 2015, he teamed up with Raider Klan to release Raider Klan: The Mixtape 2.75, in which he released a song and featured vocals on three other songs.[19] On 18 December, he dropped OG Smoke, a 6-track EP which features only Denzel Curry in vocal capacity and production from captaincrunch, HighAF, Jay$plash and Yung Icey Beats.[20]

On July 1, 2016, Yung Simmie released Simmie Season, the first volume of his Simmie Season series. With singles like "Shoot Da 3", "Bucks", "Drama Time" and "Underground King", the albums won him a spot in Vibes`s "30 Florida Rappers You Need To Hear."[21] He later released Simmie Season 2 in October 2016. The project includes singles like "Bucks" and "Yung Bob Marley" with production handled by PurrpDogg, HighAF, Jay Splash and Yung Simmie.[22][23]

Simmie announced via Twitter that he would be releasing his upcoming project "Big Smokey" on October 3, 2017.[24]

Musical style and influences

As per the Billboard magazine, slow trap beats, boastful lyrics, multiple references to drugs, alcohol and sex form the leitmotifs of Thomas' rap songs.[25] As per the Vibe magazine, Thomas, currently during his career, " owned the popular cloud rap style that was spawned in the South" and "has dominated the underground scene with records like Full Metal 2 and Shoot The 3..."[3]

In an interview with XXL, Thomas stated that while Lil Wayne has been his favorite artist, he wished to emulate Bob Marley in order to "touch people with my music like he did."[26]
