NBA Youngboy has been getting congratulatory messages, shortly after revealing that he is expecting his 5th child.
The rapper who announced few months ago that he has converted to Islam and further showed off his girl completely covered in a Burka, already has 4 children, all within the same age bracket, from 4 different women. NBA Youngboy will be welcoming his 5th baby, not from his burka-wearing girlfriend, but from one of his baby mamas named Janis.
NBA Youngboy is one of the hottest young artists – and he hails from Baton Rouge, but he is constantly in trouble with the law.
YoungBoy, born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, was raised by his grandmother in north Baton Rouge. “It was hard but fun,” he says of his early childhood. “We had to make it fun.” At the age of 4, YoungBoy broke his neck in a wrestling accident, and three deep scars still mark his forehead from wearing a halo brace. When his grandmother passed away a few years ago, YoungBoy was left to fend for himself. He dropped out of school in the 9th grade and, shortly after, was arrested for robbery. “I had been rapping, but I used to hide that shit,” he remembers. “I was scared, not for sure ‘bout myself, playing with my craft.” During his six-month sentence in a juvenile detention center in Tallulah, Louisiana, he wrote song after song for what would later become his first mixtape, Life Before Fame, released in 2015.
In person, YoungBoy uses words sparingly, saying only what’s needed to get his point across. “I’m quiet,” he explained. “My vibe gets killed fast.” But in his music, he puts his whole life out in the open. Like B.G. and Boosie before him, YoungBoy deals in reality rather than elaborate metaphor, treating the sinister piano melodies and pounding bass patterns that he raps over as his confessional. On “Cross Me,” a track from his Mind of a Menace 2 mixtape, he offers a line about his father, who’s been incarcerated for much of his life: On my heart, that’s on my soul, I won’t tell no lies/ Uncle told now my Daddy doin’ 55.
