Blac Youngsta has come a long way from being known for the hilarious and creative ways in which he flashes his money and lifestyle—a trend that often overshadowed the fact the man is a legitimate recording artist. To the naked eye, the Memphis-bred emcee was just another social media user taking advantage of a significant following. The mainstream success of his “Booty” single has him poised to be the torchbearer of strip club anthems, word to mentor and CMG honcho Yo Gotti. But, the arrival of his 223 has proven that Blac Youngsta boasts layers and artistry more profound than all of these elements and it’s exciting to see.
Here, the 27-year old flaunts a versatility that hacks away at predispositions and should be more than enough evidence for anyone looking to validate his status as a more “serious artist.” On the 14-track 223, you’ll find appearances from French Montana, Gotti, LunchMoney Lewis, Lil Yachty, and Travis Scott on the previously-released “Heavy Camp.”
Tune in and let us know if you’ll be hitting repeat on any of these tracks.
