Louisiana rapper NBA YoungBoy might want to get the best attorney money can buy. New reports claim the hip-hop rookie could find himself in jail for up to a decade for a 2016 crime.
According to reports, attorneys want YB behind bars for the next 10 years of his life and are hoping a judge agrees.
Prosecutors are asking a Baton Rouge judge to revoke Louisiana rapper Kentrell Gaulden’s probation — on the heels of his out-of-state arrest on kidnapping and assault charges — and make him serve a suspended 10-year prison term for his role in a nonfatal 2016 drive-by shooting. The 18-year-old Gaulden, who performs under the name YoungBoy Never Broke Again, is “a threat to society and the safety of others,” East Baton Rouge Parish Assistant District Attorney April Leon alleges in court documents.

A few days ago, reports emerged about NBA getting transferred to another jail over a kidnapping charge.
The 18-year-old rapper’s been transferred to Georgia’s Ware County Jail — where he got a new mug shot — and faced the judge. TMZ broke the story … YoungBoy was busted Saturday night in Tallahassee on a kidnapping warrant, related to the attack on his gf, Jania. He’s currently facing felony kidnapping and aggravated assault charges. (TMZ)
Last week, the rapper’s mom came forward to provide a small update on his situation.
“What I’m supposed to be doing? Sitting in the f*cking cell with him? Get your a** out my f*cking life – we can’t get him out right now so what the f*ck are we supposed to do?” You wanna know what’s going on, I’m sitting here telling you.”
In late February, NBA YoungBoy’s Instagram Story provided an upbeat update on his condition.
