NBA Youngboy has easily been one of hip hop’s biggest artist we have seen in recent times. The Baton Rouge bred rapper never ceases to amaze us with the constant barriers and records he’s breaking — YouTube and Spotify primarily. It’s unheard of that a rapper with no radio hits or any prestigious awards has the notoriety that NBA Youngboy has when it comes to the music. Having a cult-like fan base coining the phrase “YB better” under any music-related post on social media is power in itself. As the 22-year-old superstar continues to elevate within his career, it was only right that he connected with hip hop OG Birdman to pump out some new music, courtesy of Louisiana of course. Today (Dec. 10th), NBA Youngboy and Birdman join forces to drop off their new From The Bayou album and its thoroughness cannot be denied.

The project was first teased in early 2018, when the Louisiana rappers said it would drop on March 22, but the date came and went. Fortunately for us, things picked up steam as the album finally sees the light of day. In an interview with Big Facts Podcast in September, Birdman spoke about how great YoungBoy is and his untapped potential: “I think NBA YoungBoy might be the biggest rapper — Ain’t no nigga gone be bigger than NBA YoungBoy, numbers don’t lie, he’s the biggest YouTube artist and he behind the wall. When that lil’ boy get his mind right and he comes from under this bullshit and understands who he is, you know, Young Thug and all them, they’re up in age, they’re 30, this nigga 20.”
When it is all said and done, NBA Youngboy will indeed be one of the greatest to ever do it. There is no doubt about it that Birdman will help ensure that will be his reality. Tap in to From The Bayou now!
