Baton Rouge rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again has inked a new deal with Motown Records.
According to Billboard, YoungBoy is departing Warner Music Group’s Atlantic Records after releasing four official studio albums and many mixtapes and joining Universal Music Group-owned Motown in 2023.
Youngboy has already been working with Motown since last year, when he signed a global joint venture deal with the label and his Never Broke Again collective.
“I felt like I had a responsibility to my artists to make sure to find the right partner for my label,” YoungBoy said at the time. “I’m looking forward working with Ethiopia, Kenoe and Motown Records.”
YoungBoy previously released two compilations through Motown– Never Broke Again: The Compilation Volume 1 (2021) and Green Flag Activity (2022). He dropped a third, Nightmare on 38th Street, on Friday, October 28.
Meanwhile, Youngboy recently released Ma, I Got a Family, the superstar’s 5th project of the year, following his recent project, 3800 Degrees, released earlier this month.
Before that, he dropped Colors in January, Better Than You, a collaborative tape with DaBaby, in March, and The Last Slimeto in August.
