One of YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s most popular songs is “Outside Today,” from 2018’s Until Death Call My Name Reloaded, in which he takes great pains to explain just how much he doesn’t want to leave the house. If Top, the second YoungBoy offering of 2020’s quarantine period, tells us anything about the Baton Rouge MC, it’s that solitude is clearly still the preferred vibe.
The MC sounds like he’s in a great space across songs like “Kacey Talk,” which features his infant son, and also “Callin,” a song where YoungBoy—paired with maybe the perfect guest, Snoop Dogg—works through his own very relatable need for weed. He’s sharper-tongued on “Murder Business,” a quick reminder that life is the cost of disrespect, but reveals himself sensitive on “All In,” rapping: “Hope God put loyalty in all my friends/’Cause lord knows that I got they back till the end.”
