EDITORS’ NOTES

Like so many of Baton Rouge’s rap greats, YoungBoy Never Broke Again understands that there is no pleasure without pain. On his eight-track Master the Day of Judgement EP, the rapper reminisces on his violent early life in the streets as he celebrates his current-day success: “I know I won’t make it to heaven,” he sing-songs on the brooding “Rock and Roll.” But YoungBoy’s not completely resigned to his fate: On the twinkling trap ballad “Over,” he warbles, “I was done with love, but I done relapsed now,” and promises his girl that he’ll become a better person for her sake.
