After expressing a change of heart regarding his lyrical content and lifestyle, it seems his label is ready to drop another project from him.
NBA YoungBoy’s label, Never Broke Again, recently teased his next album, AI YoungBoy 3 via Instagram. Moreover, they included a video of YB and his friends throwing a knife at a cardboard box. While it’s barely been a month since his last project, the Louisiana hitmaker is nothing if not prolific. In fact, there might even be multiple projects on the way. Another phrase tossed around with AI YoungBoy 3 is “Don’t try this at home,” which the label captioned their Story post. “‘Don’t try this at home’ then AI Youngboy 3 album on the way,” the post read.
Furthermore, that phrase could refer to either YB’s knife-throwing skills or a recent interaction with Joe Budden. The MC and media commentator said he doesn’t believe Youngboy’s recent statements about retiring from his violent lyricism and lifestyle. “I don’t believe one f***in’ word of any of that s**t,” he remarked. “I laughed every time that s**t popped up on my phone. Get the f**k outta here,” going on to call the Top rapper’s words a marketing play. After Joe’s comments, Never Broke Again’s Instagram page posted a cryptic picture of Youngboy, potentially the cover art. “Tell @joebudden ‘Don’t try this at home’ who ready?” the caption read.

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old spoke on his changing perspective on violence during a rare Billboard interview. “I think about how many lives I actually am responsible for when it comes to my music,” he expressed at the time. “How many girls have I got feeling like if you don’t go about a situation that your boyfriend’s bringing on you in his way, you’re wrong? How many people have put this s**t in their ears and actually gone and hurt someone? Or how many kids felt like they needed to tote a gun and walked out of the house and toted it the wrong way? Now he’s fixing to sit there and do years of his life that he can’t get back.”
Also, YB addressed a variety of topics and life changes in his interview. For example, he spoke on considering a Mormon baptism after spending time with them under house arrest in Utah. With a new album seemingly on the way, it’ll be exciting to see how his artistry changes. However, what’s most important is that YB lives the life he wants, especially if it means making a positive impact. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest on YoungBoy Never Broke Again and his next release.
