NBA YoungBoy is currently one of the most recognizable and controversial rappers in the Hip-Hop world. Never Broke Again YoungBoy has also faced his own fair share of legal issues over the years. Despite it all, YoungBoy is a very genuine person and he sticks to his guns.
The rocky relationship between NBA YoungBoy and Atlantic Records may soon come to an end. It won’t be due to a lack of effort on the label’s part. YoungBoy reportedly turned down a $25 million re-signing offer from Atlantic, according to DJ Akademiks.
NBA YoungBoy is leaving. He will not be re-signing. He didn’t like their offers. I can tell you they offered him like $25 million and he turned it down. He don’t want it. He’s good. He don’t want the money. He doesn’t want to be in a record deal anymore with Atlantic. He wants to be completely free. He wants to be independent. He wants to do his thing.
NBA YoungBoy accused Atlantic of blackballing him earlier this year. If he can remain out of prison, he can do whatever he wants now. That is a huge if. Currently, YoungBoy faces seven years in prison if convicted on federal weapons charges.
Since the 2010s, NBA YoungBoy has been rapping. At the young age of 22, the Baton Rouge native has already broken numerous records. He has more RIAA certifications than rappers J. Cole and Future, has broken Biggie Small’s Billboard 200 chart record, and has over 38 billion YouTube video views, to mention a few. It’s no wonder why his record label wants him to stick around, but only time will tell what NBA YoungBoy decides to do.
