NBA YoungBoy Doesn’t Pay For Features & “Turns Down 100,000s For Them”

As fans await more information regarding NBA YoungBoy’s case, his friend is giving insight into how the rapper navigates the industry. YoungBoy has been incarcerated since earlier this year after he was arrested in Los Angeles. Last Fall, the Louisiana icon was taken into custody after police reportedly found the rapper filming at a relative’s home. Months later, YoungBoy was tacked with federal weapons charges and his attorneys have continued to deny that any of the firearms belonged to the rapper. 

Meanwhile, YoungBoy has stayed busy while behind bars as his team has released new music. The chart-topping artist has also stayed in contact, as minimal as it has been, with his fans by sharing lengthy text updates about how he’s handling his current circumstance.
