At just 16 years young, rapper YungManny has built up a formidable résumé, highlighting the origins of the DMV flow, his ear for R&B-based melodies and a growth spurt with seemingly every release in his catalog. He blended comedy and hip-hop with the memorable “All My Guys Are Ballers” and built up a report with Xanman. Today he returns with the emotional “Blessings In Disguise,” a narrative music video that highlights drug addiction, unrequited love and family disputes fit for a Netflix originals series pilot.

It’s not every day that you see a teenager carry the charisma he displays in the visual. He plays a passive bystander while he watches the interconnected stories unfold, showing off his singing chops while reminiscing about a girl not returning his passion or thoughtfulness. He ditches the humor displayed in his past efforts but is still self-aware enough to finish the single with some optimism.

Earlier today YungManny joined an All-Star cast for “495” for Kevin Durant’s upcoming Basketball County documentary with other stars from the region like Rico Nasty, IDK, Big Flock, Big JAM and Weensey.

Watch the full visual above and stay tuned for his Confused EP dropping on May 27. In more music news, Gunna has announced his new WUNNA album with a documentary trailer.
