Blac Youngsta Comes Through With "Blac Sheep," His Second Project Of The Year

Blac Youngsta keeps it featureless on his new project, "Blac Sheep."

Blac Youngsta’s been quietly ushering in a new chapter in his career. The rapper, who signed to Yo Gotti’s CMG imprint, hasn’t necessarily had the streets lit with his antics over the past year. Instead, he’s put his pen to work and kept a consistent stream of music. Blac Youngsta lit up 2022 with the release of 4LIFE, a 23-song effort that found him trading bars with Yo Gotti, 42 Dugg, and more. However, he clearly had more heat in the stash that he prepared to drop in ‘23.

Though we’re only four months into the new year, the "I'm Assuming" rapper proved that he’s not wasting a moment. In February, he released his follow-up to 4LIFE with Bank Appointment. The February release didn’t boast many features with the exception of 42 Dugg, Lil Migo, and Trapionn. The project was an excellent depiction of his gritty delivery and sound. An authentic depiction that captured his aggression, humor, and everything else that we’ve grown to love about Blac Youngsta.

Blac Youngsta Returns To The Fold With “Blac Sheep”

Nearly two months after his last release, the Memphis rapper returns with his new project Blac Sheep. The 13-song effort contains no features whatsoever but it’s another unadulterated look into Blac Youngsta’s creativity. Records like “Freaky” and “Alleged” are equally as fun as they are menacing while Youngsta aggressively dives into sexcapades and street politics. Overall, Blac Youngsta is bringing fans exactly what they want on Blac Sheep. Youngsta fully gravitates towards real guttural, heavy production that pull his energy out with each bar. It’s another exceptional release from Youngsta, though we suspect he has more in the chamber before the year closes. 

When Youngsta announced the project, he previewed a few bars that capture the essence of his new project. “I’m praying to god he can finally forgive me for my sins, I’m the Blac Sheep of my family,” he wrote. “If you are too then you my twin.” Hopefully, this won’t be the last release from Blac Youngsta this year.
