NBA Youngboy, born Kentrell Gauldon, is accused of living what he raps about. The 17-year-old Baton Rouge, Louisiana rapper 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.
XXL Mag has now learned the “38 Baby” rapper has been charged with attempted first-degree murder in his hometown of Baton Rouge.
Youngboy was extradited from Austin to Baton Rouge Wednesday.
A rep from East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, where Youngboy is currently being held, told The Fader on Thursday that the up and coming rapper 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 faces life in prison without possibility of parole.
