EDITORS’ NOTES

Baton Rouge rapper Youngboy Never Broke Again was just 17 years old when he released his breakthrough mixtape. His urgent delivery, Louisiana drawl, and bleak introspection recall the city’s biggest rap stars, Boosie Badazz and Kevin Gates, both of whom appear on 38 Baby. But Youngboy finds his own voice with the singsong flows of “For It” and “38 Baby.” Among the album’s crisp, spare beats, Yung Lan’s blearily nocturnal “My Kind of Night” stands out as the closest thing to a club banger.
