In January, YoungBoy dropped off his first project of the year with I Rest My Case, followed by Don't Try This at Home in April. NBA dropped off his three singles "Deep Down," "My Body" and "Now Who" in promotion for his new project.
YoungBoy most recently made headlines for his rumored beef with J. Cole, which started after fans believed the latter took shots at Top on Lil Yachty's song "The Secret Recipe." However, Cole clarified during his guest appearance on Drake's "First Person Shooter" that this wasn't the case. "I still wanna get me a song with YB, can’t trust everything that you saw on IG," Cole raps. "Just know if I diss you I make sure you know that I hit you like I’m on your caller I.D." YoungBoy has yet to respond to Cole's latest bars.
