YoungBoy Never Broke Again often likes to go it alone when he's releasing music, so his collabs with other artists are special. Every time he hops on a track with another artist, it's exciting, and each of his collabs bring something new to the table.
We've taken a look at some of the best YoungBoy Never Broke Again collabs to celebrate the release of his new album, Top. YoungBoy is always able to sense when he's going to work well with someone.Top features both Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg, proving YoungBoy has earned a lot of respect from those around him - and he sounds comfortable alongside some of the biggest rappers in hip-hop.
Thug Of Spades (feat. DaBaby)
Thug Of Spades sees YoungBoy linking up with DaBaby as the pair both rap about their come ups. Both YoungBoy and DaBaby have come from nothing, and they're obviously proud of what they've achieved.
They trade verses, with DaBaby jumping on the chorus. YoungBoy shouts out his children and says he's going to take care of them, no matter what. He's obviously committed to taking care of his family through music, and he's going to have fun while he's doing it. It's exciting hearing this pairing, and we're hoping they link up for some more tracks together going forward.
Right Or Wrong (feat. Future)
Both YoungBoy and Future bring the melodies on Right Or Wrong, and it's a song that'll get firmly stuck in your head. Both rappers know what it's like to be knocked down and have to get up again.
The pair work well together, and they trade verses about making the most of their situation. YoungBoy can't quite believe how far he's come. He's proud of the scars he's accumulated along the way - they make him unique. You can tell YoungBoy wouldn't change anything about his journey, both the mistakes he's made, and the lessons he's learnt along the way.
TTG (feat. Kevin Gates)
TTG feels like a lesson of sorts. Kevin Gates has seen it all, and he's passing his wisdom onto YoungBoy. It's a coming together of the teacher and the student, and this theme continues throughout the track. It's go-time for both of them, "rewind the time, I'm in my prime," and if you start something, you better be ready to finish it.
Kevin and YoungBoy go bar-for-bar on the track. TTG means trained-to-go, aka ready for a fight - and they're both "cold blooded steppers". The energy in Kevin and YoungBoy's voices prove they are ready to protect those around them, and themselves.They've outlined through their lyrics what's going to happen, and by the assuredness in their bars, they're not going to back down. If you ask us, we wouldn't try to mess with them.
One Shot (feat. Lil Baby)
YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Lil Baby linked up for One Shot, a track off the Road To Fast 9 Mixtape. The pair both talk about knowing when to take their shot, and how to take it. They're both stars of the rap game, and when they were given a glimpse at success, they grabbed it with both hands. Now they're succeeding, they're just trying to grow. "Try to ride my wave, wonderin' why they ain't drownin' yet" is one of the messages of the track - you're inevitably going to get swept up in their fame.
YoungBoy is all about the finer things in life, and he wants those around him to be amazed. You can tell by bars like "they see my drip then hold they breath then dive in like a pool" that YoungBoy knows how impressive his rise to stardom is, but he's not done yet. The hunger in his bars prove he's just getting started.
Callin (feat. Snoop Dogg)
Snoop Dogg might be 28 years older than YoungBoy, but it turns out you can still teach an old Dogg new tricks. YoungBoy and Snoop linked up for YoungBoy's new album, Top, and the result is a track that's as smooth as silk.Both YoungBoy and Snoop are ready to give their lives for what they believe in, and they're not afraid to admit it. YoungBoy inspires Snoop to spit a verse reminiscent of some of his more aggressive tracks.
Snoop Dogg is a gangsta, and Callin is a great reminder of Snoop's status as a legend. Who knows - YoungBoy might be the one rapping with the next generation one day. YoungBoy is only 20, but he's matching it with rappers more than double his age. His bars show wisdom beyond his years, and we feel like he's going to be around for a long, long time.
Bandit (with Juice WRLD)
Bandit is one of YoungBoy's most exciting features. He bounces off the late Juice WRLD, and it was Juice's last official release as a lead artist before his passing, which gives the song extra meaning.
Both Juice and YoungBoy talk about their experience as heartbreakers. YoungBoy talks about being a sharpshooter - he's savage, and he's proud of it. Once YoungBoy has his sights set on you, you better watch out.
Bandit also has a Cole Bennett-directed video, which features the pair living it up. Every time we see YoungBoy, he looks like he's having a lot of fun. He loves rapping, and his music always gets us hyped.
