Big news for fans of YoungBoy Never Broke Again — the star rapper has announced that, this Friday (Jan. 14), he’ll be releasing a new mixtape titled Colors. The project may or may not have been led by recent drops like “Black Ball,” “Emo Rockstar,” and “Fish Scale.” Just before Colors officially arrives, the Baton Rouge talent decided to bless us with another single titled “Bring The Hook,” which sees production from Karltin Bankz, Lastwordbeats, LondnBlue, D-Roc, and Jason Goldberg.
In addition to the usual hard-hitting subject matter, “Bring The Hook” will probably grab a lot of attention on social media due to lyrics that seem to be aimed at a peer who was tragically killed back in 2020:
“Nigga, this that Squid Game, O-Block pack get rolled up, murder what they told us, Atlanta boy get fold up, nigga get your hoes up, these bitches throwin’ up green flags, throwin’ that NBA up, for me, set you up to bust your ass, and know I keep that murder bag, right on him, leave a toe tag, inside the freezer, where them people put ’em ‘fore they stitch his ass, no glitchin’, better not freeze up before a nigga blitz his ass, brra-baow-baow, flip his ass…”
Colors will follow last fall’s Sincerely, Kentrell, which was released while YoungBoy was still incarcerated due to federal gun charges. Containing 21 songs (or 23 if you include the Deluxe edition) and zero features, YoungBoy‘s third studio album became his fourth number one on the Billboard 200 thanks to 137,000 first-week album equivalent units sold, following the success of AI YoungBoy 2, 38 Baby 2, and Top. Given YoungBoy‘s unstoppable career trajectory, one can expect Colors to reach the same heights upon its arrival.
