NBA Youngboy told Detroit rapper Snap Dogg in February he’d be home in March.

He said, “NBA Youngboy, I come home Feb. 22. And that’s on gang.”

Youngboy was accused of being involved in a drive-by shooting that left one friend with a gunshot wound in the neck last month, WAFB reports. Youngboy, born Kentrell Gaulden, has since been charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder.

Youngboy, 17, was the alleged shooter in the incident that occurred in his hometown of Baton Rouge on Nov. 2. The “38 Baby” rapper was one of three passengers in the vehicle.

A passenger was reportedly shot in the neck during incident. He was left in the vehicle after the vehicle he was in caught a flat tire and crashed. He was transported to a local hospital and has since been released. He has charges pending against him as well.

Derrick Guice, the accused 20-year-old driver of the vehicle, was charged with second-degree murder.

The shooting is believed to be in retaliation for the shooting death of 18-year-old Keondrae Ricks that occurred less than eight hours before the drive-by shooting incident.

NBA Youngboy was arrested in late November during a performance in Austin, Texas on a felony warrant after his concert was raided. He was booked in Travis County jail on Monday, Nov. 28 on an “undetermined,” out of state felony. He was held without bond.

Youngboy was extradited from Austin to Baton Rouge following his arrest.

A rep from East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, where Youngboy is currently being held, told The Fader he was being held on $200,000 for attempted murder.

The Fader reports Louisiana is one of nine states in the U.S. where 17 year olds can be tried as adults. If convicted of attempted murder, Youngboy could’ve faced life in prison without possibility of parole.
