While he remains on house arrest in Utah, NBA YoungBoy is preparing to drop his second project of 2023 with Don’t Try This At Home, which will hit streaming services on April 21. The album clocks in at a lengthy 33 tracks, among them his latest single “Demon Party.”
The project’s artwork depicts the F.G. Clark Activity Center in YoungBoy’s hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana — home to Southern University’s Jaguars basketball team — adorned with Don’t Try This At Home graphics on its roof.
During his appearance on the Rap Radar Podcast in February, YoungBoy claimed he would be “talking crazy” on Don’t Try This At Home, but clarified his lyrics are purely for entertainment purposes.
“I’ma talk crazy on there,” he said. “I’ma show you Murda Man. I’ma talk crazy on there, but I’m letting you know though, don’t try this at home. It’s all entertainment, bruh. I’ma talk my shit and everything I’m talking, letting you know, don’t try this at home.
“Entertainment and reality is very different. What I do think, some of the entertainers make their entertainment their reality also, if I said that right.”
YoungBoy’s last album I Rest My Case was released in January via Motown Records.
The project — his first since leaving Atlantic Records — debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 chart with roughly 29,000 total album-equivalent units in its first week.
Nicki Minaj, meanwhile, is fresh off the release of her latest single “Red Ruby Da Sleeze,” which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. A music video for the Lumidee-sampling song is on the horizon.
