YoungBoy Never Broke Again doesn’t consider DaBaby, Lil Baby or Roddy Ricch to be competition. During a TIDAL Check-In interview with Elliott Wilson, the Atlantic Records artist denied any rivalry when asked about competing with the aforementioned rappers.
“It ain’t none of that,” he told Wilson. “You could never compete with a person. None of those people determine [what I do] or I determine where they gon’ go. What they make and all that shit don’t concern what’s going on over here and anything different. I don’t know what to say about that, but shit, no.”
YoungBoy had nothing but good things to say about DaBaby, Lil Baby and Roddy. In his mind, they all bring something unique to the table.
“Everybody great at what they do, and it’s all different,” he explained. “We all different.”
While YoungBoy may not care about rap’s MVP race, he’s made a strong case for being one of the contenders for the crown in 2020. He’s earned three No. 1 albums in less than a year and had a mixtape peak at No. 2 along the way.
Top, YoungBoy’s latest LP, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart following its release on September 11. The project sold roughly 126,000 album equivalent units in the U.S. in its first week.
The Baton Rouge native’s 38 Baby 2 previously reached the pinnacle of the chart in May. Last year, he secured his first No. 1 album when the AI YoungBoy 2 mixtape hit the top spot in October 2019.
