It’s only been a little over a month since the release of YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s sophomore studio LP Top, which saw 21 tracks and a couple of assists from Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne. This week, the Baton Rouge star decided to put his own twist over JAY-Z’s 4:44 cut “The Story Of O.J.,” delivering bars about his success, the drug game, Lil Wayne’s daughter Reginae, and more:

“I am one of the greatest to ever do it, tell me why your favorite rapper so fake influenced, tell you he gon’ do things, that he never was gon’ do that’s the Mandela Effect, fake till the kids don’t understand s*** they do, what the f*** you doing?/

Lil bitch ass n***a still gon criticize because they don’t understand, f*** you on criticize a made man, b***h ass n***a gonna go to the grave playing with these and I’m a stand up, thought I was the biggest boss having all my cars paid for/”

Much like his previous clips, the Rich Porter and Krispy Kam-directed visual shows YoungBoy rapping the lyrics during a typical day filled with nice cars, high-end jewelry and plenty of smoke. This go ’round, he also adds some CGI imagery of what looks like literal Hell, complete with fire, brimstone, and skeletons.

Upon its release, Top earned YoungBoy Never Broke Again his third number one album on the Billboard 200 thanks to 126,000 album equivalent units. Top also follows the 2020 releases Still Flexin, Still Steppin and 38 Baby 2, which were released this past February and April, respectively. His official debut album, Until Death Call My Name, was released in 2018 and — including the Reloaded version — saw collabs with Birdman, Future, Offset, and Lil Uzi Vert.
