YoungBoy Never Broke Again recently secured a deal with the Universal Music Group-owned Motown, following the release of his fifth solo full-length project of 2022. The Baton Rouge rapper will start putting out music through Motown in 2023, claims Billboard.
YoungBoy’s representative verified the signing when Complex contacted them. The information was released a year after he disclosed a partnership between his Never Broke Again collective and Motown Records.
“I felt like I had a responsibility to my artists to make sure to find the right partner for my label,” said YoungBoy at the time. “I’m looking forward working with Ethiopia, Kenoe and Motown Records.”
NBA YoungBoy released Ma I Got a Family last week in collaboration with DJ Drama, making it the artist’s sixth release of the year after Colors, The Last Slimeto, Better Than You, Realer 2, and 3800 Degrees. YoungBoy teased plans to release four additional projects before 2023 after releasing the 19-track LP.
“Fun challenge ‘10 tapes 1 year ??’” he wrote on YouTube. “I’m finna be on 6 you think I can do it?”
YoungBoy has now released 16 projects since the beginning of 2020, including three official albums (Top, Sincerely, Kentrell, and The Last Slimeto), five commercial mixtapes (38 Baby 2, Colors, Until I Return, Still Flexin, Still Steppin, Realer 2, 3800 Degrees, and Ma I Got a Family), and three joint studio projects.
