Born in 1999 as Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, YoungBoy was raised by his grandmother in Baton Rouge. Three deep scars mark YoungBoy’s forehead from when he broke his neck at the age of 4 and had to wear a halo brace. He dropped out of high school in 9th grade and a little later was arrested for robbery and sent to juvenile detention. While serving time, YoungBoy penned several songs that later became his first mixtape, Life Before Fame, which started his music career in 2015. Since then, the young rapper has been incarcerated several times, but he always leaves the slammer with new music to release. Fans snatch up tickets to see NBA YoungBoy when he tours their town, so don’t miss your chance to pick up yours right now.
