It was supposed to be a big week for YoungBoy Never Broke Again. Back in January, the 18-year-old Baton Rouge rapper announced his debut album, Until Death Call My Name, would officially drop on March 2. The day came and went, with no project in sight, which left fans wondering: What the hell happened?
There’s no word on why exactly the project was delayed; however, it’s safe to assume that it has something to do with YoungBoy’s mounting legal troubles.
Earlier this week, it was reported that the rapper had been extradited to Ware County Jail in Georgia, where he will face charges of felony kidnapping and aggravated assault. The charges stem from a recent incident in which the rapper was captured on camera throwing his girlfriend to the ground in a hotel hallway before dragging her back into his room.
His girlfriend, Jania Jackson, denied that YoungBoy attacked her, and insisted they were “just playing” around.
“Kidnapped? Fuck no,” she said on Periscope after YoungBoy’s arrest. “Has he ever put his hands on me? Fuck no.”
She reiterated her denial in a new track she previewed on social media:
A judge has ordered YoungBoy to remain behind bars without any bail. His probation review hearing is scheduled for May 18.
