HIP-HOP | YoungBoy


Eighteen-year-old YoungBoy — also known as NBA (Never Broke Again) YoungBoy — has been climbing to the top and putting Baton Rouge, the home of Boosie and Kevin Gates, back on the map. YoungBoy's production has that Louisiana sound, with deep bass lines, keys, and MIDI guitar riffs, and he seems to be able to swing between the polarities of Top 40 hip-hop and rowdy, Southern trap. After a 2016 assault charge with a deadly weapon, resulting in three years probation, his focus has shifted from gang violence to his family and staying out of trouble.

YoungBoy performs Friday, February 9, at Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 7 p.m. $40-$60.;
