NBA YoungBoy arrested on drug charges in Louisiana

Chart-topping rapper Kentrell Gaulden a.k.a NBA YoungBoy has been arrested on drug charges in his Louisiana hometown.


TMZ reported that the rapper was booked on Monday night by the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office on 3 separate drug charges which include possession of schedule I drugs, manufacturing/distributing a schedule II drug, and manufacturing/distributing schedule IV drugs.



The rapper’s attorney James Manasseh said in a statement released on Tuesday September 29; 


“Kentrell is not guilty of any crimes. There’s nothing in the report that indicates that he did anything wrong. They arrested several people and there was no indication that he had any guns or drugs on him at the time of the arrest. I ultimately believe he will be found innocent in all of this.”


It’s unclear what led to his arrest, but a video shared on social media claiming to have captured the run-in with cops indicates it could’ve been a raid of some sort as the rapper was reportedly one of several people swept up and taken away in cuffs.


His recent arrest is coming after he was released from prison in 2019 after getting caught up in a Miami shooting while he was on probation for another case.
