NBA YoungBoy Biography
American rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again, also known as NBA YoungBoy or just YoungBoy, was born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden on October 20, 1999. He independently released six mixtapes between 2015 and 2017, steadily building a cult following. Gaulden signed with Atlantic Records toward the end of 2017. He released the song “Outside Today” in January 2018, and it reached its top position of number 31 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. His 2018 debut studio album, Until Death, Call My Name, which featured the song as its lead single, reached number seven on the US Billboard 200.
In October 2019, Gaulden released the song “Bandit” (with Juice WRLD), which went to number ten in the charts. A week later, he released AI YoungBoy 2, which made its Billboard 200 debut at number one. He released 38 Baby 2, his second project to top the Billboard 200 charts, in April 2020. His final endeavor was the release of The Last Slimeto, his fourth studio album, in August 2022.
Youngboy was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on October 20, 1999. When he was a young child, he fractured his neck while wrestling, necessitating a head brace while his spine recovered. His forehead was permanently scarred by the brace. His father received a 55-year prison sentence, so he was primarily raised by his maternal grandmother. He left secondary school in the ninth grade. He started writing the songs for his debut album while being held in a juvenile prison center on a robbery conviction.
NBA YoungBoy moved in with his friend and fellow rapper NBA 3Three from Baton Rouge after his release after his grandma passed away from heart failure (also known as OG 3Three). The two then started engaging in illicit activity to start paying for studio time.
How YoungBoy started producing music

The “song-for-song rap beef” between him and another Baton Rouge rapper Scotty Cain in December 2015, which featured tracks from both rappers, may also have contributed to his sudden ascent to fame.
Although the two Baton Rouge rappers’ quarrel never really resulted in physical violence, it did garner a lot of media attention.
NBA YoungBoy was detained in Austin, Texas in November 2016 on charges of attempting to commit first-degree murder in connection with a reported drive-by gunshot. His two mixtapes, Before I Go and Mind of a Menace 3, were re-released while he was incarcerated in Louisiana’s East Baton Rouge Parish.
