Realer

YoungBoy Never Broke Again

Apple Magazine - - Itunes Review -

2018 was a busy year for Louisiana’s lat­est ex­port. With an ar­rest, a de­but al­bum, three mix­tapes, three EPs and Realer re­leased at the end of De­cem­ber, YoungBoy Never Broke Again cap­tures the pain of liv­ing up to his grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion. The al­bum is a com­bi­na­tion of per­sonal con­fes­sions and dan­ger­ously spe­cific threats, wo­ven to­gether with brash, but melo­di­ous beats and flashes of harsh, bru­tal re­al­ity, show­ing that YoungBoy is grow­ing in con­fi­dence with ev­ery re­lease.

FIVE FACTS:

1. Raised in Ba­ton Rouge, Louisiana, YoungBoy NBA broke into the mu­sic in­dus­try af­ter be­com­ing renowned on SoundCloud and so­cial me­dia.

2. He broke his neck as a tod­dler, and the scars are still vis­i­ble on his fore­head from the head-brace he wore un­til the in­jury was healed.

3. His first mix­tape, re­leased in 2015, was aptly ti­tled Life Be­fore Fame.
