A collection of 10 of the more slept on gems in the discography of the most recent breakout sensation from Baton Rogue.
Since his surprise breakout in the last few years with viral sensations “38 Baby” and “So Long,” Youngboy Never Broke Again or NBA Youngboy as he’d once been known, remains a figure of controversial reputation and impressive capabilities. In the rush to greatness, he’s offered a constant outpouring of music across several mixtapes and a debut album that has inspired many to place him at the top of his generation of street rappers. However, Youngboy is a rapper whose tunes feel like moody wallowings, leaving you to sift your way through a sea of tracks with morose content and details. Hits, when they happen, are obvious bangers that captivate and become anthems but in a lot of the murkier material there’s still some real gems.
Here at Hotnewhiphop, we’ve assembled 10 cuts that help give newer listeners a deeper picture, and longtime fans a reminder of the less often cited cuts, as to what made people so invested in this rapper. You have tracks with introspective soul-searching and plenty of menacing boasts, that can range from the bluesy and the soulful to real get buck and get beat-down bangers that simply weren’t in the spotlight when he had it. Take a look and a listen at some of the more raw selections in the career of Youngboy Never Broke Again.
