A year later, he dropped AI YoungBoy 2, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. His next two projects, both released in 2020, followed suit as chart-topping projects on the Billboard 200.
With the release of Sincerely, Kentrell from prison in September 2021, NBA joined the league of artists like 2Pac and Lil Wayne, becoming the third artist to have a chart-topping album while behind bars. In November 2016, Gaulden was arrested before a concert in Austin, Texas, for jumping out of a vehicle and opening fire on a group of people on a South Baton Rouge street. He was subsequently charged with two counts of attempted murder. The rapper has continued to have run-ins with the law, serving jail terms at different instances.

Kayden arrived when YoungBoy was still so young, and this sparked controversy about his exact age. NBA was born in October 1999, which makes him only 22 years old in 2021. He was 16 years of age when he had his first child.
Nisha is Kayden’s mother who used to be NBA’s girlfriend in his early teens. Nothing is known about her, other than the fact that she was just 14 years of age when she had Kayden. Although her relationship with NBA long ended, she is pretty much involved in her child’s life.

Taylin Gaulden was born on 19 March 2017. He is the third son of NBA YoungBoy, who he had with Niya after a one-night stand. When Niya told NBA about her pregnancy, he didn’t think it was his biological child and insisted on a DNA test, which proved him to be the father. YoungBoy later stated that his insistence on DNA testing was because Niya wasn’t trustworthy and had had an affair with his brother.
Kamiri is YoungBoy’s child with his ex-girlfriend, musician Starr Dejanee. Fondly called K3, Kamiri was born on 6 July 2016.
