In the new track, which arrives ahead of his forthcoming album 'The Last Slimeto', the hip-hop star suggests that he's been blackballed by the music industry.

AceShowbiz - NBA YoungBoy (YoungBoy Never Broke Again) has a special treat for fans considering that he's now off the hook. Following his not guilty verdict in his gun case, the emcee unleashed a new single called "I Don't Talk".

The track arrived along with its official music video. In the Isaac Garcia-directed clip, the 22-year-old can be seen showing off stacks of cash as he raps about the good and bad side of the respect he receives amid fame. He also suggests that he's been blackballed by the music industry.

"They talk down on my name, on my face, they brought shamе/ Blackballed me from up out the gamе, b***h, stripped me out the fame," the Baton Rouge native, who is expected to release his fourth studio album "The Last Slimeto" on August 5, raps. "I ain't get a thing but a laugh when I told my pain/ 'Oh, that's hilarious, thug?' "

"I Don't Talk" arrived just days after a jury found YoungBoy not guilty of a charge of illegal firearms possession over a loaded handgun found in his car last year. The verdict was announced on Friday, July 15 after a 3-day trial.

Responding to the verdict, the rapper's attorney told TMZ that his client got emotional, putting his head down and starting to cry when the verdict was read because it's been a stressful and emotional situation for him. While walking out of the courtroom, the hip-hop star exclaimed, "I was never guilty of this," according to his lawyer. He additionally told Rolling Stone that he is "feeling great" after the verdict.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles was understandably "disappointed" with the verdict as they believed there was enough evidence to support the charges. "We believe the evidence presented in this case supported the charges brought by the grand jury," said a spokesperson for the Attorney's Office. The rep added though, "While we are disappointed with the verdict, we respect the jury's decision."

YoungBoy was arrested in Los Angeles in March 2021 on an arrest warrant stemming from his September 2020 arrest in Baton Rouge. He attempted to flee, but after a search that involved using a K9, the "Outside Today" spitter was found and booked on federal firearms charges. He was released from jail on a $1.5 million bail in October after serving 7 months and was sentenced to pre-trial house arrest in Utah.
