Now, NBA YoungBoy has dropped a song and video from the project, though the mixtape is yet to be released. “Heart & Soul / Alligator Walk” appeared on YouTube last night and has amassed over a million views already.
The mixtape was slated for a midnight release however, at the time of going to press, it is yet to materialize. Birdman teased the tracklist via social media on Thursday and confirmed fans would have the tape as scheduled.
“MIDNITE FROM THA BAYOU #NBARG🦅🐊🐍”
In a recent interview, Birdman heaped praise on the “Life Support” hitmaker crowning him, “the biggest rapper.”
“Ain’t no n*gga gone be bigger than NBA YoungBoy, numbers don’t lie, he’s the biggest YouTube artist and he behind the wall,” he said during an appearance on the “Big Facts” podcast.
He added, “When that lil’ boy get his mind right and he comes from under this bulls*ht and understands who he is, you know, Thug and all them, they’re up in age, they’re 30, this n*gga 20. And you put a n*gga behind the wall, they become smart.”
