NBA Youngboy has secured his reputation as a hip-hop legend once and for all. The rapper has finally become the top artist on the Apple Music charts.

Up until now, Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” claimed the top spot for the last three weeks. Youngboy’s most recent album, “Sincerely Kentrell” is now on pace to sell 135,00 to 155,00 units just in its first week.

Youngboy has also achieved this feat all by himself, while Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” had the advantage of featuring other rap big names such as Jay-Z and Lil Wayne.

What makes Youngboy’s achievement even more significant is that he has managed to put out this album while incarcerated! The rapper was locked up for an arrest earlier this year.
