NBA YoungBoy just dropped the tracklist for his new mixtape, Richest Opp. The release has been surrounded by drama from all sides. YoungBoy just released a studio album a few weeks ago. As such, there was no need to release new music this soon. However, after Lil Durk announced that his new album would be out this Friday, YoungBoy quickly announced he’d be dropping the mixtape the same day. This news follows reports that the two artists are still involved in a feud, despite claims from DJ Akademiks that the beef had been resolved. Both YoungBoy and Durk denied this on their social media accounts. Durk stated that he is not friends with anyone, and YoungBoy called out Akademiks and his industry friends.
Akademiks clarified his previous statement through an Instagram comment. He explained that he meant Lil Durk and NBA YoungBoy are no longer actively dissing each other in their music and tweets. The two rappers have been involved in a feud since last year when they released diss tracks targeting each other. Although the situation seemed to have calmed down for a while, the simultaneous release of their new projects may reignite the feud.

NBA Youngboy posted the tracklist for Richest Opp on his Twitter account. The mixtape is set to have 17 tracks, which is quite a bit considered the 33-song album he just released in April. While Youngboy does tend to release a ridiculous amount of material, there is a good reason for it. He has been on house arrest for years. Despite the ongoing beef with Lil Durk and his online rants, the rapper is currently living a relatively peaceful life in Utah. YoungBoy has been facing legal issues since he was arrested for federal gun charges several years ago. Sadly, because of this, he cannot make public appearances.
While YoungBoy might be on house arrest, he is still achieving huge career milestones. He just became the youngest rapper ever to have 100 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. His first single, “Untouchable,” reached number 95 in 2017, and since then, he has managed to chart an additional 99 times as either a lead artist or a featured artist. Youngboy joins an elite group of rappers, including Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Jay-Z, who have achieved this feat. He will no doubt chart again with some of the songs from his new mixtape.
