The wait is over. YoungBoy Stans can finally carry on with their day in peace — NBA YoungBoy is a free man.
Earlier this morning, the 22-year-old Louisana rapper appeared in front of a California judge to see whether or not he would be granted bond for multiple gun possession charges.
Luckily, YoungBoy would walk, as he will immediately head to Utah where he will be on house arrest awaiting further trial for his federal case.
He was given permission to build a recording studio at his Utah home and will be allowed three guests at a time with the judge’s approval.

NBA YoungBoy’s release could come as early as today
Although NBA YoungBoy currently remains behind bars, he could be released as soon as today.
According to DJ Akademiks, YoungBoy will appear in front of a judge Tuesday (10/26) in regards to his California gun charge. He was granted bond by the New Orleans court last week but was held up by the U.S attorney’s office in the state of California. Today, he will stand in front of a California judge in hopes of being granted a bond so he can officially walk free.
NBA YoungBoy could be granted bond from California, Louisana charges
After being held in custody for over six months in Louisana, NBA YoungBoy’s stint in prison could be nearing an end soon.
According to XXL, James Manasseh — attorney for NBA YoungBoy — confirmed Friday (Oct. 22) that a judge has granted YB’s bond with “significant conditions” attached. YoungBoy’s attorney did not specify these conditions, however, according to The Advocate, stipulations consist of YoungBoy being on house arrest at his home in Utah — with former members of the military securing his property at all times.

YB’s team also requested permission to build a recording studio at his Utah home. He will not be able to leave his residence and would only be allowed three visitors at a time with the judge’s approval.
While YoungBoy may be free, he isn’t out of the woods just yet. Unfortunately, YB still awaits trial for federal gun charges in the state of California. According to @lawyerforworkers, the U.S attorney’s office in the state of California has put a hold on his release from detention by the New Orleans court — citing multiple counts of various unapprehended gun charges in both Louisiana and California.
Although he was granted bond for his case in New Orleans, the source also explains his California gun charge is still open and the state’s U.S attorney’s office is asking for a hold to be placed on his detention.
Although Young Boy was behind bars for quite some time, he’s still garnered great success. He was able to release Sincerely, Kentrell which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in September — making him the third artist in history to have a No. 1 debut behind bars, joining both Lil Wayne and 2Pac.
