YoungN revealed in past interviews he had already been shot five times. He was also once charged with second-degree murder, reports.

YoungN began making a name for himself for his eccentric lifestyle. He notably caught social media’s attention in December 2016 when he walked into an Audi dealership with a drawstring backpack full of cash.

Glenn Bell, YoungN’s cousin, was present at the crime scene. Bell told this isn’t the end of BTY YoungN’s rapper career.

“Rap is his career, not was,” Bell told “He’s going to live on.”

YoungN has a large catalog of music online. He has released numerous singles, including “Materialistic,” “Far From Over,” “It’s Whatever,” “When I Was” and more.
