NBA Youngboy Drops “Don’t Try This At Home” Release Date & Cover Art
It’s not even April and NBA Youngboy’s second offering of the year is on the way. Over the past few months, the rapper hinted at the release of his forthcoming project, Don’t Try This At Home. Following singles like “Next” and “Demon Party,” NBA Youngboy finally settled on a release date for his new album. This morning, he shared the official cover art for his upcoming project, which drops on April 21st. The cover art includes an image of Baton Rouge’s F.G. Clark Activity Center, where the Southern University’s Jaguars play, along with the album’s title printed on the roof.
NBA Youngboy already unloaded his first project of the year, I Rest My Case in January, marking his official debut on Motown Records. During an interview with Rap Radar, he explained that the title reflects his unadulterated thoughts that will spill across his next opus. “I’mma be talking crazy on there,” he said of the project. “I’mma show you Murda Man… but I’m lettin’ you know, though: Don’t try this at home.” In the midst of his feud with Lil Durk, YB sounds like he won’t be holding back on his upcoming effort.
NBA Youngboy Sets Release Date For New Album
At its core, Don’t Try This At Home appears to be a direct message to NBA Youngboy’s peers in rap. Though he hasn’t necessarily become a competitive lyricist, he unloaded his issues towards his peers on wax in the past, especially those who portray a lifestyle that they don’t actually live. “Entertainment and reality is very different. What I do think, some of the entertainers make their entertainment their reality also, if I said that right,” he continued to explain to Rap Radar.
The album’s release couldn’t come at a better time. The Baton Rouge rapper just received modifications to his house arrest conditions. Now, he’ll be allowed to have more than three visitors at his home at a time. Hopefully, this becomes a strong sign that he’ll soon be released. Following the release of Don’t Try This At Home – his seventh release within the past year – we hope to see NBA Youngboy back on the road and touring, once again.
