YoungBoy, born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, is a rapper from Baton Rouge who developed a badass reputation as a teenager with a trip to a juvenile detention facility on robbery charges. It was there and then, 2015, that he wrote his debut mixtape, «Life Before Fame.» His early work drew wide notice from the hip hop industry. After his arrest on murder charges in 2016, YounBoy added Never Broke Again — NBA — to his name. He was released from jail in May 2017 after pleading guilty to a lesser charge. The case involved an alleged drive-by shooting.
