YoungBoy Never Broke Again, AKA NBA YoungBoy has been making waves in the American rap scene for a couple years now, and not just because of his music. The young buck is also known for his large and apparently expanding family, which includes four children from apparently four different baby mamas. Now, YoungBoy is apparently expecting another, bringing the total of NBA YoungBoy children to five.
Young Rapper Hails from Baton Rouge
If you’ve never heard of NBA YoungBoy, then you might just be out of the loop. The rapper has been making mixtapes from 2016, which he released online to minor acclaim. Eventually, his music was heard by the right person, and he was offered a deal with Atlantic Records, with whom he’s still signed. Since signing, his top single has peaked at #31 on the Billboard Hot 100. In October, he dropped a full-length album, which did well in the charts.
YoungBoy’s style could be classified as fast-paced and aggressive trap, with a classic Southern flair. His music is often layered with an intricate array of treble and bass, punctuated with polyrhythmic synths and an underlying high hat trilling that’s as infectious as it is repetitive. YoungBoy writes his lyrics, and it shows. His flow never seems to cease, even when he takes an audible pause for effect. He’s a greenhorn yet, despite the impressive size of his discography, and it shows sometimes through his sometimes clumsy lyricism. However, you can’t fault him for the eagerness and obvious passion in his songs. The boy’s got clout, but apparently – he might also have the clap.
NBA YoungBoy Has Herpes
Wait, what? Well, not the clap exactly, but it’s gotten out that NBA YoungBoy may have caught herpes from one of his baby mamas. He even raps about it in one of his latest tracks, saying “That ain’t the truth when I hear what you saying/I got herpes and I gave it to Ni / To tell the truth that chick gave it to me.”
His ex Jania Jackson responded, “I didn’t give nobody s—t. This lying s–t getting out of hand and I’m sick of it.” It just goes to show that there are two sides to every story, and we might never know the truth about who gave what to whom. What we do know is the consequences of unprotected sex – herpes is an incredibly common STD, with an average of 1 in 5 Americans contracting the disease every year. YoungBoy was definitely unlucky in contracting it, but at least it wasn’t something deadly. It is, however, incurable, and could potentially even spread to his children – depending on what type it is. Until we know more, however, it’s all up in the air.
Not All Of YoungBoy’s Children Are Biologically His
The number of NBA YoungBoy children seems like it was meant to be five, even when the young rapper found out that one of them isn’t his, biologically speaking. His son, Baby K, was apparently fathered by another man. How this information came to light is unknown, but YoungBoy unashamedly shared the information on his Facebook profile, saying “Wanna Be First To Tell Yall I Officially Found Out Baby K Isnt My Child ,But The Man I Am Im Going To Keep Raising Him Like He’s Mine I Cant Lie It Hurt To Find Out The Truth But Life Goes On.”
We personally respect the decision that YoungBoy has made to raise this child as his own. As he said himself, Baby K isn’t biologically his, but YoungBoy has decided to make it his responsibility to determine the kind of man that child is going to be. People in the comment section of an article reporting the news were also admiring, albeit none-too-eager to take the young buck’s place. One top-rated comment said:
“YOU ARE NOT the father!…..smdh Well….It’s a got damn shame….But he kept it a buck! I wish him the best, moving forward…..But if it was me She gon have to go find her baby daddy ….. Duces.”
Luckily for Baby K, this anonymous user wasn’t in YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s situation. At this point, it’s pretty much guaranteed that the kid is going to be living an affluent life.
YoungBoy Has Promising Career Ahead
With all the drama about ‘NBA YoungBoy children’ aside, the young rapper has quite the future. His music has critical and popular acclaim, he’s raking in the dough, and he’s only 20 years old. Obviously, he’s quite popular with the ladies too – he’s currently dating Young Lyric, who is an accomplished rapper in her own right. The two were spotted recently together at the courthouse where YoungBoy’s probation charges were recently dismissed. In all aspects of life, it seems like YoungBoy is making things work and getting results. Let’s all hope that things keep going the way they are for him.
