YoungBoy Album Review

By Adam Sarsfield

On August 5, Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, better known as YoungBoy Never Broke Again, released his 4th studio album. The album has a massive tracklist coming in at 30 songs, making the album a total listen time of 1 hour and 21 minutes. YoungBoy created a mostly solo album with only one feature from the Migos rapper Quavo. The album’s release follows a recent court finalization over a gun possession charge brought onto YoungBoy. YoungBoy was wanted in connection with a police raid that happened in Louisiana but fled authorities until they tracked him down in Los Angeles. Police attempted to pull YoungBoy over however he refused to do so and started a short police chase that ended when he attempted to flee on foot. He was caught and brought to trial over an illegal gun possession charge but was found not guilty. Overall, the album was well received by many people with a good mix between YoungBoys famous aggressive violent tone mixed with a more emotional emo rap tone. The album was able to acheive around 108,400 units sold in the first week of its release. Personally I think it is overall a good album but I haven’t had the chance to closely listen to each song on the album so I do not have any favorite songs yet. Having listened to the album for a quick run through ,it makes sense why there was so much praise about it, as YoungBoy still delivers an amazing album that stays consistent to his normal flow. I would recommend taking a listen to the album if you have not already.
