NBA YoungBoy is no stranger to controversy as he’s known to speak his mind. It appears the rapper isn’t a big fan of YouTubers using his content in their videos. Taking to Instagram on Sunday, NBA YoungBoy told YouTubers to “get a real job” while asking his label to stop users from playing his music on their channels.
The Baton Rouge rapper wrote, “Atlantic ban my music from all YouTubers – get a real job,” before adding, “Ha ha ha ion like you neither wait on my funeral.” Shortly after making the comments, NBA YoungBoy claimed Atlantic Records thought the post was about them. He also thinks the label is trying to find a way to sue him after his contract ends.
NBA said in a voice note posted on DJ Akademiks’ Instagram, “Everything y’all post, Atlantic try to make it seem like I’m talking about them so they can try to sue me once the time’s up,” He further added, “Man, tell them people suck my d*ck. Leave me alone, b*tch. Ain’t nobody talking about y’all. I hate y’all b*tches. I hate y’all more than y’all hate me. Leave me alone.”
This isn’t the first time YoungBoy has voiced his issues with Atlantic. Earlier this year, he accused the label of stopping his Colors mixtape from going No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, while also telling artists not to sign with them. He wrote at the time,
“Why black ball me I’m the good guy !!!?? I was going #1 two weeks straight with a mixtape so they took it down off the charts. I don’t give a f*ck you still can’t stop me don’t sign to Atlantic if you a artist they not gone support you especially if you live a certain way.”
Meanwhile, on the professional front NBA YoungBoy is set to release his new album The Last Slimeto on August 5 via Never Broke Again and Atlantic Records. In April, he dropped 11 songs from the 30-track project. Fans are certainly excited for the new album to drop. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
