YoungBoy Never Broke Again may be taking a break from hip hop for some “healing time.”
The embattled Baton Rouge rapper released his latest mixtape Colors on Friday (Jan. 21), and it includes 20-tracks filled with hard-hitting bars and emotional reflections. Besides the Quando Rono assisted “Gangsta,” and the Internet Money collaboration “Flossin,” YoungBoy holds down the project predominantly on his own.
According to Jason “Cheese” Goldberg, a producer who worked on Colors and has produced songs like “Toxic Punk,” “Kacey Talk,” and others, YoungBoy will be taking a substantial break from releasing new music.
Goldberg discussed YoungBoy’s hiatus in an Instagram post. “PSA: A select few songs probably (maybe) will drop from now until then but Top will not be seen or heard from into his album approximately #6months from now,” Goldberg wrote on Instagram. “We have some amazing songs for you thank you for everything #HealingTime #RockPeace #ForeverBro.”
The news comes after a busy past few months for the “Emo Rockstar” rapper. While in prison at the St. Martin Parish Correctional Center in Louisiana, YoungBoy’s Sincerely, Kentrell album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. He was released from prison, after a seven-month stay, in October, and ordered to stay on a pre-trial house arrest in Utah.
Since then, he’s released a joint mixtape with Baby called From the Bayou, and an onslaught of singles.
YoungBoy’s break may be for the best since he’s currently involved in a war of words with NLE Choppa and Lil Durk. Days ago, images of YB lying next to cash spread out into a message that reads, “You niggas gone die” hit the Internet. An additional photo shows the bills arranged to say “Stay safe.” A rumored reply via Lil Durk’s Instagram reads, “Hurry ya’ll bitch azz up.”
It’s unclear exactly how YB plans to spend his six months away from music as he awaits trial on federal gun charges in Louisiana.
