Since popping up on the scene with his debut mixtape, Life Before Fame, YoungBoy Never Broke Again has become one of the most interesting figures in modern hip-hop. Between 2015 and 2022, the Baton Rouge rapstar has amassed a voluminous discography of cutting edge sounds that have elevated YoungBoy from cloud-era hopeful to the contemporary rap icon he is today.
All this urges the question; how much has YoungBoy Never Broke Again made from streaming on Spotify?
Using the given Spotify payout rate of .00437 payout per stream, and factoring that with the industry standard artist payout of 18%, we have approximated just how much YB has made from Spotify on each of his major projects.
Please remember, this is just an estimation. Our calculations do not account for any of YoungBoy NBA’s collaborative albums with other artists, including Fed Baby’s with Moneybagg Yo, From the Bayou with Birdman, Better Than You with DaBaby, or any others. Also It is entirely possible YoungBoy’s payout is different than the industry average, and this calculation does not account for any of the artist’s additional revenue streams (other digital streaming platforms, endorsements, etc.).
