YoungBoy Never Broke Again Gets Tatted Up in “Graffiti” Video
YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who was just released from jail two months ago, is back with "Graffiti," a new cut from his forthcoming A.I. YoungBoy project. He's released the song along with a music video, which was directed by David G. Peep the visual below.
Like pretty much all of YoungBoy's videos, this one has the feel of a day-long documentary—almost like a reality show. It begins with the young rapper counting up fat stacks of cash and getting into an argument with what's presumably his girlfriend. After the half-hearted back-and-forth, YoungBoy collects his stacks and goes about his business for the day, getting a tattoo, performing at a show and handing cash stacks to a baby.
The video is pretty straightforward and it seems like he's having a good time, but it's not all fun and games. The hook for the song reveals some of the Baton Rouge, La.-based rapper's inner turmoil.
"All this pain and I feel like I can't hold it/Gone off lean, and you know that I be on it/
I don't slipping boy you know that I'm focused/Fly time, prime time, I'm balling hard sideline," he half-sings through the first part of the hook.
It's the sort of perfectly melodic and reflective cut YoungBoy's been putting out lately, and we expect to hear more tracks like it on A.I. YoungBoy, which drops on Aug. 4.
Check out the video for "Graffiti" below. After that, give his song "Call on Me" a listen too.
