NBA FREE AGENCY (UPDATE)

With the drop of YoungBoy Never Broke Again's The Last Slimeto (NBA/Atlantic), the prolific rapper—who is, pound for pound, a Top 5 most-streamed artist in the U.S.—becomes one of the hottest free agents in the biz. Interest in his next chapter has boosted the project, which now looks headed for a six-figure debut.

Though Slimeto is YoungBoy's first release of 2022, he's earned 4b+ streams this year. The numbers he's been able to achieve in his short career (he's only 22) can be attributed to various factors: He's delivered mixtapes and albums at a relentless pace; he's respected both by the streets and critically acclaimed artists; and he's one of only a few MCs who can balance ferocious bars with soulful, heart-wrenching hooks. 

YB's ascension from street rapper to chart-topping phenom is distinguished by four #1 projects (album, mixtape or EP), 26 total projects and a Grammy nomination for "Wusyaname," his collaboration with Tyler, The Creator.

Where will the young Baton Rouge talent land? Stay tuned...
