4. NBA Youngboy - "Murda Man" and "Highway" Feat. Terinito

NBA Youngboy isn't an innovator, but the North Baton Rouge native knows how to create some bangers. Both "Murda Man" and "Highway" follow Youngboy's Master of the Day Judgement album, released earlier this year.

On March 19, the rapper was arrested for the aggravated assault and kidnapping of his girlfriend Jania. While out on bail,  a judge added conditions to his bail such as banning him from using social media and requiring that he cannot leave Louisiana, reports Baton Rouge Advocate. Obviously, both of the former conditions are instrumental in promoting music.
