YoungBoy Never Broke Again is ready to give up the rap game… for the right price.
The Baton Rouge rapper took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a photo of his portable hard drive. YoungBoy told his followers he was willing to sell the storage device for a whopping nine figures; and once the transaction was completed, he would retire from rapping.
“You can have it for 100 million,” he wrote in the story, “and I’ll never rap again on everything.”
It’s safe to assume the hard drive holds a trove of unreleased material. YoungBoy has spent 2022 cranking out project after project, including his fourth studio album, The Last Slimeto, as well as the mixtapes Colors, Realer 2, 3800 Degrees, Ma’ I Got a Familyand Better Than You with DaBaby.
YoungBoy presented the offer about a month after he inked a deal with Motown Records. Although the terms of the contract were not revealed, insiders told Variety that “signing was highly competitive.”
The rapper 23-year-old MC sparked retirement rumors back in July, when DJ Akademiks shared screenshots of their text conversation, in which YoungBoy insisted he would step away from rap after his next album.
“Say I ain’t fw this rap shit no mo,” he purportedly wrote, “after this album I’m done as long as my family str8, ima be good 4 life.”
It wasn’t long before YoungBoy denied those rumors: “Don’t do fake promo on me I never said that,” he wrote in the comments section. “After August, I’m dropping again.”
YoungBoy is now gearing up to drop 3860, a collaborative project with Quando Rondo. The effort will span 16 tracks, including the previously released “Give Me a Sign,” “Cream Soda,” “Keep Me Dry,” and “It’s On.” 3860 will hit streaming services this Friday.
