Don't Try This At Home
Clocking in at nearly 90 minutes, Don’t Try This At Home marks the longest album of NBA YoungBoy’s prolific career. Much like his similarly sprawling The Last Slimeto, this 33-track effort perpetuates a multi-year winning streak for the Baton Rouge rapper. Coming mere months after his Motown debut I Rest My Case, the project captures his idiosyncratic essence, vacillating between confident spat moments and earnestly sung ones. “Big Truck” unrepentantly lays waste to lesser locals, while “Out Nothing” turns its love song pretense simultaneously luxe and toxic. High-profile features by Nicki Minaj on “WTF” and Post Malone with The Kid LAROI on “What You Say” only add to his already considerable clout, though he arguably sounds his finest on “Rear View” opposite Mariah The Scientist.
