After serving six months in jail on weapons charges, NBA Youngboy will be RELEASED and placed on home arrest.


RAPPER NBA YoungBoy is reportedly set to be released and put on house arrest after six months in jail on weapons charges.

YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, was busted in Los Angeles in March after reportedly fleeing from the FBI and Los Angeles Police after they tried to pull him over on an outstanding federal warrant stemming from an arrest back in September.

The rapper’s attorneys told TMZ that bail has been set for YoungBoy, 22, and he is awaiting release.

He was reportedly given the option to either put up $1.5million worth of property or $500,000 cash.

After he was arrested in March, YoungBoy was transported to Louisiana and booked into a jail in St. Martin Parish.

YoungBoy was one of 16 people arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on various charges related to distribution and manufacturing of drugs and possession of stolen firearms in September 2020.

At the time, police had responded to reports that a large group of people were brandishing weapons while filming a music video.

Marijuana, hydrocodone, and several handguns and rifles were found at the scene.

His lawyer, however, denied that he was guilty at the time.

According to TMZ, documents show that federal prosecutors took issue with two guns YoungBoy allegedly had on him when he was arrested in Louisiana.

Cops claim the rapper had a .45 pistol as well as a 9mm handgun, which was not registered to him.

Documents seen by TMZ reportedly reveal that all weapons in his possession were seized immediately, including the two in question.

YoungBoy is already a convicted felon and is forbidden under state and federal laws from possessing a firearm, according to Complex.

After his arrest, Floyd Mayweather’s daughter, Iyanna, begged cops to free the rapper, just months after she gave birth to their son.

The pair began dating in 2019 and earlier this year, Yaya gave birth to YoungBoy’s seventh child.
