Louisiana born platinum rapper JayDaYoungan has released his long-awaited debut album, “Baby23.” The album boasts 23 tracks, including singles “23 Island”, “Perky Activated”, “38K”, “Touch Your Toes” (ft. Mulatto), with Kevin Gates, Moneybagg Yo, Dej Loaf, and Mulatto featured.
“Baby23” is an authentic glimpse into who JayDaYoungan is and how he got here.
I stand on 23 as a brand. Michael Jordan is my favorite basketball player. It’s my auntie’s number (who passed away in a tragic car accident Jan 23, 2011.) I’ve got a son now, so he’s 23 Baby. Everything is dedicated to him. This is my first child, my first album, and my story.JayDaYoungan
Lyrically, some of the songs are about pain. Some of them are good things. Some of them are about my wife and what we’re going through. It’s all of the smiles and all of the frowns. You’re hearing the good times and the bad times from me. It’s versatile.JayDaYoungan
