2. RIP DUMP

“RIP Dump” is a combination of every song you heard on this 4Loyalty EP: It has some hard-hitting elements, emotional vibes, moments that are chill, and lots of straight-up rapping.

Dedication songs are usually soulful; however, Young Boy Never Broke Again uses “RIP Dump” as an opportunity to flex his muscles and let the world know that you can’t turn his lights off. In the hood, I guess it’s kill or be killed, and his paranoia really starts to flare up when he thinks about his homies that are gone.

 

 

1. THIS FOR THE

I love it when hood n***as call out other hood n***as! On “This For The,” that’s what happens.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Quando Rondo call out fake b*tches, fake thugs, and everyone in-between on “This For The.” What happens from there is lots of bragging from the two rappers.

I like the tempo attached to “This For The,” and absolutely love how YoungBoy slays the hook on the song by doing a splash of harmonizing (Just a splash).

OVERALL RATING

(B)

 

No one in the rap industry is as explosive as YoungBoy Never Broke Again. Whether it’s a club banger or an emotional banger, he comes with nothing but pure passion. On 4Loyalty, YoungBoy takes us on the roughest of roller-coaster rides out of the 3 EP’s, going from club banger to emotional banger to chill banger back to emotional banger. He also showcases his versatility on the project by playing ‘hit-maker’ in “This For The,” crooner in “Permanent Scar,” and Rambo in “RIP Dump.” I love each and every character YoungBoy portrays, especially because he makes you feel like you are listening to a musical version of a Shakespeare play.

It was hard to fit this part into my main conclusion, but Quando Rondo was excellent on 4Loyalty. He matched YoungBoy’s energy throughout and actually delivered some pretty impressive bars. I also loved the beats I heard on the project, mainly because they challenged YoungBoy to be great every step of the way.

Alright, I’m ready for your next EP, YoungBoy! I’m guessing it will be called “4Lyfe” (Misspelled and everything).
