Born and raised in the state of Louisiana, he grew up in capital city of Baton rouge. At the age of 4 years old, he suffered the unfortunate accident of breaking his neck while wrestling. He had to wear a halo brace during recovery - the three scars that he has on his forehead are a result of using the brace.

He was raised by his grandmother for most of his life.

He grew up in a neighborhood filled with danger and violence. He has seen a few of his close friends die as a result of gang and gun violence.

By the time he was in the 9th grade, he dropped out of school to pursue a career

in Rapping, yet he was also involved in criminal activities.

Criminal History

Robbery

Not long after dropping out of high school in the ninth grade, he was arrested for robbery and sent to a juvenile detention center in Tallulah sometime in 2014.

During his time in prison, he wrote most of the lyrics and bars for his mixtapes Life Before Fame and Mind of A Menace which were released in 2015.

He was released sometime in December, 2015.

In November, 2016, he was involved in another shootout which took place at a venue in Austin, Texas. He was set to perform when local authorities arrived and took him down and the rest of his crew. He was extradited to Baton Rouge after. He was arrested for two counts of attempted first-degree murder. His bond was set at $200,000. [1]

He was involved in a Drive-by shooting that cops believe was connected to a larger string of incidents in the area. The rapper was accused of firing a gun multiple times on the 2000 block of Kentucky Street, and police say he was with three other people in the car, including the driver, a juvenile. During the shooting, one of the passengers was allegedly shot in the neck. [1] YoungBoy entered a guilty plea to just one count of aggravated assault with a firearm Monday morning. Investigators believe the 2016 shooting was retaliation for the shooting death of 18-year-old Keondrae Ricks, who was found shot to death in the 2000 block of Nebraska Street less than eight hours before the drive-by shooting incident. [1]

He was released on May 22nd, 2017.

He will remain out of jail until his sentence hearing.

No date has been set as of yet.

Rappers Boosie Badazz and Meek Mill came to the support of Youngboy. Boosie helped with the bond, and Meek conditioned the young rapper with advice about the rap industry before heading into it head first proceeding his release.

Lamborgini Car Crash

Some time in late June, 2017, a car crash that took place in West Hollywood, California involving a white Lamborghini was assumed to belong to Youngboy. According to reports, he had actually escaped into another vehicle, a Bentley.

NBA has been heralded for his work ethic and dedication to his craft, sound, crew, and fan base.

He alone worked on his image, management, productions, and videography projects.

In essence, Gaulden formulated a persona that people in his hometown can identify with due to the amount of violence that happens in the streets of Baton Rouge with teenagers his age.

NBA tells it himself in the following: “NBA is me, YoungBoy, Never Broke Again.

I built it from the ground to the top.

NBA fall, I all fall”.

He has garnered millions of views on his YouTube videos. His Instagram has garnered more than 1.2 million followers after having it for only a month and 44 posts.
