Jeron Agbewali is currently listening to “How I Been” by rap artist YoungBoy Never Broke Again, or NBA YoungBoy.

“It talks about what he’s been doing throughout the week,” Agbewali said.

“How I Been” is full of a vibrant, steady beat throughout the song. YoungBoy explores how he is trying to build his career, and how he and his partner are struggling in their relationship. 

YoungBoy, whose full name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, began his rise to fame in 2014. In 2017, YoungBoy was signed to Atlantic Records and has since made Billboard charts with several of his songs. “How I Been” was released as a single just four months ago in 2020. 

“He talks about the stuff he did this week, how he’s been doing, his health,” Agbewali said. “It’s a lot.”

With his signature energetic style and rhythm, YoungBoy’s work is a great choice for rap lovers.
