American rapper Kentrell DeSean Gaulden known professionally as YoungBoy Never Broke Again has released a new track, “Nightfall” from his fourth studio album, “The Last Slimeto.”
The Last Slimeto serves as a follow-up to BETTER THAN YOU, YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s joint mixtape with DaBaby.
The Last Slimeto features guest appearances from Kehlani, Rod Wave, and Quavo. The album also features production from YoungBoy’s in-house producer and engineer, Jason “Cheese” Goldberg, alongside Nick “Popnick” Seeley, Palaze, Haze, and many more prestigious producers in the rap industry.
The album was first teased on Instagram by YoungBoy’s go-to engineer, Jason “Cheese” Goldberg who previewed the official artwork while also hinting at a March 2022 release. Alongside the album teaser, Jason also hinted at an end to YoungBoy’s contract with Atlantic Records, and it was later confirmed that The Last Slimeto will indeed be YoungBoy’s last album with Atlantic Records.
