Never Broke Again AI Youngboy

The newcomer NBA Youngboy repping Baton Rouge, Louisiana stepped in the game as a volatile youth. Youngboy took dual state felony charges for attempted murder, but was released in May to a lesser charge of Aggravated Assault.  As young champions in the game, this close knit crew rap the grim realities of street life and success. NBA Youngboy gained fame behind mix-tapes 38 Baby and Mind of a Menace 3 Reloaded.  Never Broke Again is a code this crew live by.  Heavy artillery and raw rhymes accentuate these story-lines. NBA Youngboy is attempting to rise from the ashes of the Louisiana Underground Rap scene and streets with Never Broke Again.  AI Youngboy is a detailed survival guide for young boys pushing to get paper or respect.  Authentic to the life of struggle, the rap game brings hope to these young rappers.  After his release rappers such as Meek Mill and Boosie Badazz were vocal about NBA Youngboy focusing on his music while living on the straight and narrow to perfect his craft.  The references to the actual NBA are less than expected, but this EP holds its own. The NBA squad shows heart in the Hip Hop game despite shortcomings. As independent rappers they remain focused on their talents. The cycle of guns and violence will take many under, however as a young rapper and entrepreneur, with a livid crew, NBA Youngboy and his squad have time to bounce back.  Never Broke Again as a crew may thrive or notably grow continuing to bring hot music to the streets.

After “Wins and Losses” went viral during his incarceration, Youngboy has emerged as one of the rap industry’s rising stars.  As the 17 year old’s fan base is extra inclusive of fellow rappers, NBA 3Three, NBA Big B, and NBA KD who released mix-tape Extortion Season in May.  AI Youngboy flosses as the groups leader and resident trap star.  Last year XXL quoted NBA Youngboy as stating, “NBA is me, Youngboy, Never Broke Again, I built it from the ground to the top. NBA falls, I fall.   The AI Youngboy tour begins September 10, in Long Beach, California and ends September 29th in Atlanta.  The hit single, “Untouchable” is gaining in popularity and respect for the talented rapper.  The album AI Youngboy features both Peewey Longway and Yo Gotti. Holding an arsenal of gritty Southern rhymes, NBA Youngboy brings his chilling truth to the world, and hopefully a city near you.
