YoungBoy Never Broke Again and his team have been staying busy since the rapper‘s release from prison in October. Last month, fans got to check out the third official compilation from the Never Broke Again collective, reuniting YoungBoy with artists Quando Rondo, NoCap, NBA Big B, NBA Meechy Baby, Herm Tha Blacksheep, P Yungin, RJAE, and Rojay MLP. He then followed that with “Heart & Soul” and “Alligator Walk,” the latter of which is expected to appear on From The Bayou, his forthcoming joint effort with fellow statesman Birdman.
Yesterday (Dec. 6), YoungBoy liberated another song titled “Black Ball,” which sees production from Dexter Randall, Jason Goldberg, and DaniBoi and sees him rapping about staying on top in spite of all weapons formed against him:
“On top the mountain, lookin’ down on all these niggas hatin’ on me, and I see I got ’em all debatin’ on me, know I’m gon’ get paid, can’t take this hate all free, try to block me out, black ball, but they see me now, in the slums, right in that North, where the fuck I was found, I was rollin’, thuggin’ hard with them shottas through town, but now I’m livin’ in my dream now, dream now…”
The accompanying clip for “Black Ball” comes courtesy of Nick “FlyGuyNick” Belotti and sees YoungBoy at home with his love ones. Throughout the video, viewers can see the rapper in much better spirits, playing Jenga, holding his young child, play-wresting on a couch, and more — he and girlfriend Jazlyn Mychelle even find time to paint their faces during some downtime.
Back in September (and while still behind bars), YoungBoy released his third studio album Sincerely, Kentrell, a 21-track effort that landed him his fourth number one debut on the Billboard 200 thanks to 137,000 first-week units sold. A deluxe edition made landfall shortly after with two additional cuts.
