This is what social media had to say:

Lil Yase started seeing musical success in 2015 after dropping “Get It In”, where the remix gained national attention in 2016. The remix featured other California rappers such as G-Val, Lil Blood, Nef The Pharaoh, Mozzy, and Yatta. He also has other joints, Demon,” “What You Mean,” “Yeah Yeah,” and more. 

Our hearts are with Lil Yase’s family and friends.
