An influential figure in his hometown scene, Yung Mal is ready to step back into the spotlight in 2023. Donning his stunna shades as he counts his blessings and his bands, Mal shares “Gah Damn,” his new video single. Over an apocalyptic trap beat by BMarch, Brgndy, and DY Krazy, Mal perfects his tumbling flow, unfurling tongue-twisting flexes with effortless ease, while taking a moment to mourn a fallen friend: “Lost my heart when my brother got killed,” he spits. In the video, directed by close collaborator ShotByWolf, the Alamo Records signee sparkles in his black-and-white fit, as he counts his hundreds and shows off his collection of souped-up vehicles.
“Gah Damn” is Mal’s first new single since the release of “Right Back Out” in July. A furious First Day Out statement, “Right Back Out” was a welcome return for the East Atlanta rapper, earning praise from the likes of Offset and Swae Lee, who posted videos with the snippet, and notable names like Young Scooter, The Honorable C-Note, and DY from 808 Mafia showed love in the Instagram comment section. The love that the rap world showed Yung Mal upon the release of “Right Back Out” is a testament to his stature in the Southern scene, the product of years making street hits on his own and as part of a duo with his frequent partner Lil Quill, and collaborating with the likes of G Herbo, Pooh Shiesty, BIG30, and more. After six long months overcoming even more obstacles, Yung Mal is ready to properly follow-up his acclaimed 2021 project 1.5 Way Or No Way and make 2023 his year.
With a project coming out in the coming weeks, Yung Mal plans to reach another level. Keep an eye on the ATL stunna as he continues to rise.
