New Music: Ralo feat. Young Thug, Lil Yachty, & Lil Uzi Vert – ‘Young Ni**a’

Ralo taps some of the biggest names in trap for his new single, “Young Ni**a,” which features Young Thug, Lil Yachty, and Lil Uzi Vert.

Ralo and Jeffery kick off the track with back-and-forth flows. “Young ni**a fly like propellers,” raps Thugga, while Ralo adds, “Young ni**a stacking up vegetables.”

Over Ricky Racks’ hard-hitting beat, Lil Boat delivers sharp spite for detractors. “I do commercials, I’m so controversial,” he raps. “Every time they see me, they hatin’ / They hate when I win, but they love when I sin / These ni**as gon’ wake the man that’s within.”

Although billed as a guest artist, Uzi Vert doesn’t have a verse on the track. Instead, he delivers ad-libs throughout.

“Young Thug is a real life gangster and he’s supported me since the beginning,” Ralo told Complex. “Him and I were in the studio and he introduced me to Lil Uzi and he started ad-libbing the hook and the song came together.

“I really wanted Lil Yachty on this song because I said something about him in an interview that was wrong,” Ralo added. “I apologized about it because I didn’t even know him at the time. Collaborating with guys like Thug and Yachty helped me to break into the blogs and mainstream media. I already had the streets locked.”

“Young Ni**a” is a single off Ralo’s forthcoming Famerican Gangster 2. Due Feb. 12, the project features Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Birdman, YFN Lucci, and Shy Glizzy.
