Who is the rapper NBA YoungBoy?

Other names he goes by in public are YoungBoy and YoungBoy Never Broke Again.

- Aside from his rapping career helping boost his popularity, NBA YoungBoy has also been in prison countless times now. Some of his legal issues include gun use and assault.
- Despite being sent to prison over and over again, NBA YoungBoy still made time for his music career. He’s also released tracks and other projects while he was locked away for one of the many crimes he’s been charged with.
