In a short note re-shared by DJ Akademiks, the rapper wrote, “I was going #1 two weeks straight with a mixtape so they took it down off the charts.” He continued, “I don’t give a f**k you still can’t stop me don’t sign to [Atlantic Records] if you a artist they not gone support you especially if you live a certain way.”
In late 2021, YoungBoy stated during his Off the Record interview that he had no plans to sign another contract with Atlantic Records once his current deal — which will be completed upon the release of his Sincerely, Kentrell studio album followup — is finished.
Colors, a mixtape released after Sincerely, Kentrell, debuted at No. 2 on this week’s Billboard 200. It marked NBA YoungBoy’s eight top 10 entry, all of which he achieved in just under four years.
