YoungBoy Never Broke Again
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.
