NBA YoungBoy released his last solo project Colors in January, before dropping his DaBaby collaborative mixtape Better Than You in March. The new music continues to arrive in abundance despite admitting he’d lost love for music during his appearance on Akademiks’ Off the Record podcast in December.
“I been wanting to stop doing music since two and a half years ago,” NBA YoungBoy said at the time. “I’m really getting to that breaking point of, like, ‘Fuck that shit.’ I used to make five, 10 songs a day. Now I make like two songs.”
He added, “I’d give it up all right now, but other than that, I’ve put my life on the line too many times. I’ve got friends that done died [in] this shit.”
