NBA YoungBoy Released From Jail After Serving 90-Day Sentence

NBA YoungBoy

NBA YoungBoy is free at last.

NBA YoungBoy was released from prison early Thursday morning after serving three months on a parole violation stemming from a shooting at Rolling Loud. The rapper was greeted by family members when he left East Baton Rouge Paris Prison, including his mother who embraced him with a big hug. The group was surrounded by cameras as seen in videos posted to social media.

A judge sent YoungBoy to jail back in May after he violated his probation by hanging with associates that he had been in trouble with in the past. He and those associates were shot at during Rolling Loud festival in Miami, and his 19-year-old girlfriend was injured in the shooting. An innocent bystander was killed in the crossfire.

The 19-year-old rapper, born Kentrell Gaulden, will begin serving a year’s term on house arrest and will not be able to travel or perform until his probation is up in August 2020. However, Urban Islandz reported Wednesday that he would be dropping music as soon as he gets home.
