Video Review: YoungBoy Never Broke Again “Kacey Talk”

At the Billionaire club, the chips rise from the table. YoungBoy Never Broke Again stands in silhouette by a flame orange window. He squirts a paint gun against a white background, splattered with color. As he sits in a meeting, he flicks the pages of the executives.

Water swirls together over his car as he dances by it at night. He leaves the conference room and walks in the hallway of the office. While he smokes a cigar by the neon Billionaire sign, money floats near his head. His child, Kacey paints on the wall.

He stands by a copier in the office. A slot machine says “4 K T.” His face painted green, he sits by his child. A flash of ligtning occurs in a young woman’s eye in the casino. He leans against the table, grinning at the second young woman standing next to him. He hands Kacey a paintbrush. Green paint flows upward in the corner. He smokes a cigar while he sits at a desk in the office. Kacey paints his cheek and he smiles. He shows his son a paint gun and shoots. On the wall, he writes “4 K T” and gives his son a high-five. Kacey claps and his son dances. He hugs his son.
