EDITORS’ NOTES

After finding his way out of Long Beach gang life, this Cambodian American rapper broke through in 2017 with the viral Mozzy team-up “Mando.” The West Coast vibes and trap sensibilities of that single and $tupid Young’s subsequent mixtapes dominate his third full-length project, True Story II. Backed by a slew of guests, including Smokepurpp and YBN Nahmir, he exudes street-level swagger and a hardened yet heartfelt realness on vibrant tracks like “Glocc in My Pants” and “Never By My Lonely.” Adding to all that clout, Bay Area legend E-40 bestows blessings on the snappy single “All Day.”
