YoungBoy dispels rumors of retirement, plans to drop album after August

NBA Youngboy is one of hip-hop’s most beloved yet polarizing stars, and it seems like he’s had enough of the “fake promo” surrounding his name.

With rumors circulating over the weekend that YB would be retiring from music, the New Orleans-based rapper took initiative to clear the air on Saturday night (July 9).

Initially, a screenshot of a supposed text conversation surfaced on social media, where it was reported that YoungBoy was fed up the industry, among other things. “I ain’t fw this rap sh*t no mo,” the text read. “After this album i’m done as long as my family str8, ima be good 4 life.”

In the days that followed, YoungBoy debunked plans of his supposed retirement, taking to his official Instagram to say: “Don’t do fake promo on me I never said that. After August I’m dropping again”.

While YoungBoy is well-known for the pace in which he drops music, it was hard to believe that an artist with a die-hard following like his would consider retiring at just 22-years-old. Although YoungBoy confirmed that he’s sharing a new project after August, it would come as no surprise if the “Late To Da Party” rapper delivered a few new tracks to hold fans over in the meantime.

As far as his legal situation, YB isn’t out of the woods yet, as his California and Baton Rouge weapons trials start this month.
