Following last month’s debut of the video for “Slime Belief,” YoungBoy Never Broke Again is back with another new single and visual, “Scenes.” The video, which is a collaboration with PnB Rock, finds the 19-year-old Baton Rouge rapper deep within a troubled and anti-social state of mind, delivering paranoid ruminations on rough relationships, murder, drugs and the enemies who serve as thorns on his side. He’s not even old enough to drink, but YoungBoy always finds a way to produce gritty, dark music that makes it sound like he’s experienced more trials, tribulations and traumas than someone twice his age.
“Young n***a gon’ smoke all night, drink all night / I ain’t never had nothin’, came from the slums, been all right / These n***as ain’t sayin’ nothin’, these young n***as they gon’ spin all night / I got mans with me, got my head hunter he gon’ kill on site,” YoungBoy raps during his “Scenes” verse. “I been putting up with your shit all day, why you been calling me? / Xans got me laced, startin’ to see you don’t give your all to me / Your friends say my picture in your phone, why you stalking me? / I don’t want your love, get it off of me / These n***as, they lame as f*ck, let us all agree.”
