The wannabe rappers teamed up in acts of crime to pay for studio time. In 2015, he released his first mix-tape titled Life Before Fame which was followed by mixtapes namely, Mind of a Menace, Mind of a Menace 2, and Before I Go.

In October 2016, YoungBoy Never Broke Again released yet another mixtape titled 38 Baby. It had songs featuring Boosie Badazz, Kevin Gates, Stroke Tha Don, and NBA 3Three. This gained him an increasing attraction. Only 3 weeks later, on November 7, 2016, he released another mixtape, Mind of a Menace. Some of the tracks even included death threats to rapper Scotty Cain, dating back to the feud they had in December 2015.
