In a recent interview with the Rap Radar Podcast, NBA YoungBoy Never Broke Again claims to possess a unique ability to identify whether a rapper is genuinely a gangsta or not. YB also discusses his forthcoming album, ‘Don’t Try This at Home’ during the full-length sit-down, which premiered on Thursday, February 16th.
NBA YoungBoy had this to say, I’m gonna talk crazy on there. I’m gonna show you, Murda Man. I’m gonna talk crazy on there, but I’m letting you know though, don’t try this at home.”
NBA YoungBoy stated that reality and entertainment are disconnected when questioned about the blurred boundary between the two.
“Entertainment and reality is very different. What I do think is some entertainer make their entertainment their reality also. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of people you’ll see today, oh that’s 100 percent who they is. I don’t doubt it. A lot of rappers today, half of them probably 100 percent who they is. But I guarantee you bro, the majority of them, nah.”
He continued by saying, “It be like this bro… you’ll look at these rappers’ videos, you gon’ see a gun in this video, right? You go to the next one, you see a gun in his video, right? You gotta dig a little deeper sometimes, bro. Alright, now look at his mama. His mama ain’t no gangsta, so how the fuck is he a gangsta? That shit don’t be adding up, bro.”
This marks the elusive rapper’s second interview in the same month. A few weeks earlier, Billboard published a cover story with NBA YoungBoy, in which he discussed feeling guilty about the negative effects of his music, his plan to join The Mormon Church after completing his house arrest, and his tendency to release an excessive amount of music
