NBA YoungBoy a.k.a. YoungBoy Never Broke Again is gearing up for the release of his new album. The hip-hop star shared on social media the cover art for the project, only to spark chatter among social media users as many of them thought that it looked very similar to Roddy Ricch‘s debut album cover art.

The artwork for YB’s new album “TOP” showed him standing against a plain background as he donned a black shirt with a chain necklace. Fans pointed out that his pose looked oddly similar to Ricch’s pose in his “Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial” artwork, not to mention that both rappers were shown from the chest up in their respective artworks.

 

Almost immediately after sharing his new album cover, the accusations started flooding NBA Youngboy's post with one person writing, "sooo we just gon act like this don't look like roddy rich cover".

Another user wrote, "very muchh copyin roddy", whilst a third said, "He wanna be Roddy ricch so bad".

Across social media, fans have claimed that everything from NBA Youngboy's pose, to his facial expression, chains and plain black top, combined with the black and white aesthetic is a direct copy of Roddy Ricch.

NBA Youngboy hasn't yet responded to the claims that his album cover is a copy of Roddy Ricch's, whilst Roddy has also stayed silent on the comments from fans.
