The Criminal History of NBA YoungBoy


NBA Youngboy is one of the most talented rappers
in hip hop right now. The 19 year old Baton Rouge rapper has gained
a massive following online with almost every single song NBA Youngboy released getting
tens of millions of plays online. What makes NBA Youngboy so unique is his ability
to make a melodic type of song bouncy and catchy, you can listen to a NBA Youngboy song
in just about any situation. But in my opinion, the thing that makes NBA
Youngboy such an iconic artist is the emotional aspect of his songs. Even though a majority of his fans may not
completely relate to Youngboy and the struggles he went through, he still has this ability
to make a connection with his fans with his music that a lot of other artists struggle
to do. What exactly are these hard to relate struggles
that NBA Youngboy tends to rap about in his music? Well we have an idea that some of it may involve
his past criminal experiences while growing up in Baton Rouge. So without further adieu, here is an exclusive
inside look at the criminal history of NBA Youngboy. NBA Youngboy’s first documented arrest happened
on November 28, 2016. According to authorities, NBA Youngboy was
arrested by U.S. Marshalls in Austin, Texas for two counts of attempted first degree murder
from a past incident that occurred on November 2, 2016 in Louisiana. Sources claim that Youngboy and another man
allegedly got out of a car and opened fire at a group of people on the 2000 block of
Kentucky Street in South Baton Rouge. Shortly after being officially charged and
booked, NBA Youngboy was extradited to another jurisdiction and was held on a $200,000 bond. After spending almost 7 months behind bars,
NBA Youngboy had a court hearing where Youngboy ended up confessing to firing a gun multiple
times during the drive-by shooting that happened on the 2000 block of Kentucky St. on November
2, 2016. Moments after Youngboy’s confession, the
prosecutor offered a plea deal to NBA Youngboy for a lesser charge in exchange for a guilty
plea. The deal was that if NBA Youngboy pled guilty,
the current charges would be reduced to one count of aggravated assault with a firearm
rather than two counts of attempted second degree murder. After already confessing to his crimes, NBA
Youngboy obviously took this generous plea deal. At the end of the hearing, Judge Bonnie Jackson
granted Youngboy a post-conviction bond of $50,000 which allowed NBA Youngboy to leave
jail that day. Once home, NBA Youngboy recorded and released
his song “Untouchable” which is one of his most popular songs to date. Several months later, NBA Youngboy was due
back into court on August 22, 2017 for sentencing. At the beginning of sentencing, the judge
gave NBA Youngboy an emotional lecture that lasted for quite some time according to people
present in the courtroom. After this lecture, the judge handed down
a 10 year suspended prison term to NBA Youngboy as well as three years of active supervised
probation. While NBA Youngboy is most likely going to
be heavily monitored for the next decade or so, he still came out with a W on this one. On top of all of that, the judge also ordered
Youngboy to perform 250 hours of community service, which includes an anti-violence public
service announcement as well as a $5,000 fine. At the end of sentencing, NBA Youngboy apologized
for his crimes and said he made a mistake and has learned from it. The last words said by the judge was “failure
is not an option” to Youngboy as he was about to get up and leave the courtroom. For the next 7 months, NBA Youngboy focused
on furthering his music career and stayed out of trouble while doing so, but that came
to an end on February 24, 2018 after NBA Youngboy was arrested in Tallahassee, Florida before
stepping onstage for his scheduled performance. Authorities claim that they arrested NBA Youngboy
for allegedly committing acts of assault, kidnapping, and for a weapons violation. These charges stem from an alleged altercation
with his girlfriend Jania Jackson. According to hotel surveillance footage, NBA
Youngboy and his girlfriend allegedly engaged in a heated tussle that included Youngboy
throwing Jania Jackson down to the ground. After the surveillance footage surfaced online,
Jackson went on social media to address the charges against Youngboy and said “Kidnapped? F**k no. Has he ever put his hands on me? F**k no.” A few days later, NBA Youngboy was transferred
to Ware County Jail in Georgia on multiple charges, two of them being felonies for kidnapping
and aggravated assault. On March 16, 2018, NBA Youngboy was released
from jail on a $75,000 bail and quickly took to social media to address these claims and
said “That’s just us, that’s how we like to play.” There were very few details on the outcome
of this case so the only information I can really give you guys is that the Judge revoked
his ability to travel out of state for the next nine of his twelve scheduled shows. NBA Youngboy’s next arrest occurred on February
11, 2019 at the Hyatt House hotel on Marietta Street in downtown Atlanta. Sources say that around 12:15 p.m. a hotel
housekeeper was assigned to clean the room NBA Youngboy and female friend Starr Thigpen
were staying in at the time. With the hotel room supposed to be empty,
the housekeeper entered the room after knocking several times. After entering, NBA Youngboy told Starr Thigpen
to get the housekeeper out of the room and according to police, Thigpen did so by assaulting
the housekeeper by striking her in the face. This physical altercation continued into the
hallway of the hotel before another employee of the Hyatt ran to the lobby to get help. Shortly after, Youngboy and Thigpen were both
arrested but with different charges. Youngboy was booked with disorderly conduct
with use of fighting words, discorderly conduct with physical obstruction of another and possession
of marijuana. Thigpen on the other hand was booked with
disorderly conduct with acts of violence towards another, disorderly conduct with physical
obstruction of another and possession of marijuana. After being booked, they were released just
moments later but it wasn’t until a month later that the Atlanta police department officially
pressed charges on the two with the final charges being 2 misdemeanors which were possession
of less than an ounce of marijuana and disorderly conduct. This case is still ongoing and NBA Youngboy
does have a upcoming court date in the near future. NBA Youngboy’s latest arrest happened on
May 17, 2019. According to multiple news outlets, NBA Youngboy
and his entourage were leaving the Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach Florida
to perform at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami. Reports say that around 1:30 p.m. gunfire
erupted outside the hotel after NBA Youngboy’s entourage and Tee Grizzley’s entourage got
into a heated argument. Both parties exchanged gunfire and a total
of 3 people were hit during the comotion. One of those individuals was 43 year old Mohamad
Jradri who was an innocent bystander who sadly passed away after getting caught in the crossfire. A 5-year-old boy was also “grazed” by
a bullet but was able to be treated at the scene by paramedics. The last person hit was NBA Youngboy’s girlfriend
Kaylyn Long. Kaylyn was apparently hit in the arm and was
taken to Aventura hospital in stable condition where she was treated and later released. Police detained and questioned four people
during this incident but all four were later released without any charges being filed. Florida has a stand your ground law, and since
NBA Youngboy claimed this was an “assassination attempt” against him, his team did nothing
illegal by firing back at the other shooters. Despite being in a shootout just moments before,
NBA Youngboy still made it in time to perform at Rolling Loud. But just days later, a judge ordered NBA Youngboy
to be arrested immediately claiming that the shooting constituted a probation violation
despite the fact that Youngboy was the target and not the one pulling the trigger. The judge requested that Youngboy remains
behind bars for at least 30 days while they figure out what to do moving forward. This is a very scary situation for NBA Youngboy
since the judge has been very lenient with him and even denied the prosecutors request
of revoking his probation after claiming Youngboy is a “threat to society”. It’s pretty clear that the judge see’s the
good in NBA Youngboy but it does seem like she’s getting pretty fed up with Youngboys
antics and has the ability to put him in jail for years. Whether or not she will is up to her, but
hopefully it all plays out in Youngboys favor. As of now he is still behind bars but has
a court hearing coming up in a few weeks so I guess we will find out the outcome of all
this then. Well there you have it, the entire criminal
