Video Review: YoungBoy Never Broke Again “Lil Top”

At night, a car drives on the expressway. YoungBoy Never Broke Again, wearing an orange puffer coat, sits in the backseat. In the city, they pass by a Shake Shack. He smiles as he walks in a warehouse. Animated gravel tears open through the ground. He stands by an animated ball of fire.

He dances in place as he sits in the backseat. His friends join him in the alley. He continues to walk around the warehouse by himself. He smokes as he and his friends stand by the car. While in the car, he shows off his chain. He tilts his head and within his hollowed eyes, he dances in the warehouse. Back in the car, he pulls out a gun.
