When YoungBoy Never Broke Again posted the black and white cover art for his new 18-song album, TOP, arriving on Friday, September 11, a lot of hip-hop fans had to do a double-take.
That's because the emotionless portrait looks very similar to what's seen on the front of Roddy Ricch's No. 1 debut studio album Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, which dropped this past December.
Obviously monochrome photos aren't anything new, but it's hard to deny the look-alike qualities being presented.
Here's the Antisocial cover for reference. You be the judge.
Before doing his best Roddy imitation, the 20-year-old Baton Rouge native's last project, 38 Baby 2, debuted atop the Billboard 200 in May, selling 67,000 equivalent album units.
Youngboy doesn't seem too bothered by the comparisons, though, as he quickly delivered a four-pack single, "Tracks from Top," on all streaming platforms using the same snapshot.
The mini-collection contains the previously released "Kacey Talk" and "All In," plus "Sticks With Me" and "House Arrest Tingz."
A few hours earlier, YoungBoy appeared as the honorary fourth member of the Migos in the video for their bouncy, Buddah Bless-produced track "Need It." Directed by Wyatt Winfrey and the Migos themselves, it was eventually trending at #1 on YouTube.
