The young rapper opens up.

In a new video for Mass Appeal, up-and-coming Baton Rouge rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again revealed that he should probably go through counseling. The rapper, who has made his name on incredibly grim tales of violence and inner-city life, said that he thinks he needs to deal with his anger issues.

“I have all bad days,” he said in the new video. “I think I need help. I got an anger problem.” Those issues may have come from dealing with the realities of growing up in Baton Rouge. He painted a bleak picture of his hometown when asked about it. “It was a challenge,” he said. “Baton Rouge is all about staying alive. It don’t matter if you in that set or you out that set. Ain’t no hiding from gun violence. Ain’t no hiding from violence, period. It’s either jail or death, like literally. Ain’t no living out there.”

He also explained the sort-of life he used to live in Baton Rouge, saying that he was always ready to rob somebody. “I ain’t used to let sh*t slide. I used to be wild,” he said. “I done did a lot of bad sh*t. I’m a good person. I’m not a bad person.”

The “41” rapper said he would have told his younger self to calm down and focus on the music if he was able to talk to him. “Work harder. Start focusing on the music more,” he said, when asked to give advice to his younger self. “I think I would have dodged jail.”
