MOTOWN OPENS ITS DOORS TO YOUNGBOY

YoungBoy Never Broke Again is hooking up with Motown Records to create a global JV for his label. The first release from Never Broke Again will be a compilation in October with a single out this month.

YoungBoy and Kyle “Montana” Clairborne will continue to lead Never Broke Again. The Never Broke Again Vol. 1 compilation of 16 unreleased tracks will feature YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Quando Rondo and others; solo projects from 16-year-old P Yungin and Meechy Baby will follow in early 2022.

Motown Records Chairman and CEO Ethiopia Habtemariam called Never Broke Again “a homegrown brand that has created an incredibly authentic and credible movement that represents the next generation in Louisiana’s legacy of ground-breaking hip-hop labels.”

Clairborne returned the compliment, saying, “Motown has been an inspiration for generations—a place that helps develop artists, songwriters and business executives and I’m thankful to Ethiopia, Kenoe [Jordan] and the team for making Never Broke Again part of the Motown family.”
