NBA On his angry new song “Fuck The Industry Pt. 2,” YoungBoy has fired shots at Drake, J. Cole, and Lil Yachty.
On Friday (May 12), the rapper from Baton Rouge published his most recent album, Richest Opp, which included a song that flings verbal jabs at a number of well-known artists.
YoungBoy begins by referring to Drake as his “enemy” and labeling him a “bitch,” making reference to the 6 God’s friendship with Lil Durk, and asserting that he refused to collaborate with him despite enjoying his music.
“Talk to Drake ‘cross FaceTime, he wasn’t feelin’ me/ Told me that he fuck with Durk, damn, that shit was gettin’ to me/ Told me that he like the shit I’m doin’, but can’t do shit with me/ So when we cross our ways, fuck what you say, bitch, you my enemy,” he snarls.
In recent years, Drizzy has frequently teamed up with Durk, YoungBoy’s fierce opponent, on songs like 2020’s “Laugh Now Cry Later” and his Certified Lover Boy album track “In the Bible.”
Then, NBA YoungBoy calls J. Cole, who is featured on Durk’s brand-new song, “All My Life,” which was also released on Friday, a “ho” for allegedly ghosting him after they agreed to collaborate.
“J a ho, that n-gga played it cold, like he was gon’ do a feature/ So I texted his line, a muscle sign, I swear it’s gon’ be nice to meet you,” he raps.
J. Cole allegedly waited eight hours in the studio for NBA YoungBoy in March 2021, but the rapper never showed up, according to Akademiks.
“J. Cole waited in the studio for eight hours for YoungBoy to show up,” Ak said. “YoungBoy didn’t show up. Facts. These are facts! Your favorite rapper, n-gga. J. Cole? He sat in the studio for eight hours for a session with YoungBoy. YoungBoy never showed up. Let me be fair to YoungBoy. No disrespect to J. Cole, J. Cole’s just a rapper.”
“YoungBoy be going through shit. He’s living life, he’s going through shit. YoungBoy said, ‘Yo, my energy is not fit to be in the studio with that guy.’ It wasn’t about J. Cole. It was just that he, and personally what he was going through, wasn’t fit to be in that environment.”
NBA YoungBoy finishes the vicious song by criticizing Lil Yachty for his previous connection with JT from City Girls.
“Bitch, play with me, Lil Yachty mad about JT, f-ggot/ Bitch, play with me, half of y’all ain’t got more money than me,”
Yachty replied to YoungBoy’s attack on Twitter immediately after the album’s release, but neither Drake nor J. Cole have yet provided a response. The Atlanta rapper shared a brief video of 50 Cent exclaiming, “I mean, what he say ‘fuck me’ for?!” in shock.
YoungBoy responded with a video of his own, claiming Yachty had “checked” him for shooting JT while they were still together.
Before laughing, he said, “Yachty crazy than a muthafucka. Aye bitch, you got me laughing over here, boy. Bitch, you know why I said that, mane. You called me talking about that crazy ass girl, boy,”
“Mama, that bitch really checked me ’bout that girl. That bitch checked the gangsta, man … If I ain’t mistaken, bruh, you say you X’d me out trying to talk to your bitch. And I was confused ’cause you a ho and you was coming at me like — I ain’t really do that.”
“Bitch, I got a mental problem over here and I got too much money. You n-ggas might as well stay the fuck out my way.”
NBA YoungBoy’s Richest Opp, a collection of 17 new songs with a single feature from NBA Ben10, was published through Never Broke Again/Motown Records. It is his third album to be released this year after I Rest My Case in January and Don’t Try This at Home in April.
