YoungBoy Never Broke Again Career
Gaulden first began producing music with a microphone he bought from Walmart when he was fourteen years old. He released his first mixtape, Life Before Fame, as NBA YoungBoy in 2014. A string of other mixtapes followed including Mind of a Menace, Mind of a Menace 2, and Mind of a Menace 3. Gaulden attracted attention with his October 2016 mixtape, 38 Baby which featured fellow Baton Rouge natives, Lil Snupe, Boosie Badazz and Kevin Gates. Gaulden’s quick rise to popularity could also be attributed to his “song-for-song rap beef” with fellow Baton Rouge rapper Scotty Cain in December 2015, in which songs from both rappers included death threats. Although no real violence ever occurred between the two Baton Rouge rappers, their feuding attracted a lot of attention.
In December 2016, YoungBoy was arrested in Austin, Texas on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder in connection with an alleged drive-by shooting. While in jail in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, YoungBoy released several songs, including “Win or Lose”, “Don’t Matter”, and “Too Much”.YoungBoy was released from prison in May 2017 after taking a plea deal and posting bail. A week after leaving prison, YoungBoy released the single, “Untouchable”.
In July 2017, YoungBoy released a video for his song, “41”, that included cameos from notable artists including, Meek Mill, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Boosie Badazz, and Yo Gotti. On August 3, 2017, he released his mixtape, AI YoungBoy which charted at 24 on the Billboard 200. The single, “Untouchable”, peaked at number 95 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The second single from AI YoungBoy, “No Smoke” peaked at number 61 on the Billboard Hot 100. Also in August 2017, YoungBoy announced the AI YoungBoy tour.
