Rich Gang’s Young Thug has nothing but love for his longtime pal and protégé. The hip-hop star has saluted Louisiana native NBA Youngboy with a bromance-filled social media post.

On Sunday, Thugger hit up Instagram with a shirtless Youngboy shot filled with goat and heart emojis.

Back in March, Thug celebrated NBA’s publicized jail release following weeks behind bars.



Thug’s heartfelt words came just hours after NBA posted $75,000 bail.

The 18-year-old Louisiana rapper posted $75,000 bail Thursday around 1 PM to get released from Ware County Jail in Georgia. TMZ broke the story … YoungBoy was busted in Florida on Feb. 24 on a warrant for kidnapping, and then transferred to GA. A judge had initially denied him bail, but that changed Monday at a second hearing, where the judge set his bail amount. (TMZ)

The same month, a report emerged about prosecutors wanting to put Youngboy away for a decade on multiple criminal charges.

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.
