NBA YoungBoy Bio and Career

“I have never had good days. Before fame all my days were bad”, the rapper confessed in one of his interviews. NBA YoungBoy is just 18 years old, but he had already passed through numerous disasters. And they made him even stronger.

Born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, widely known as NBA YoungBoy, grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He had no parents (the boy’s father was imprisoned for a really long term) and that’s why Kentrell was brought by a grandmother.

It was hard for his granny to cope with an active toddler, and one day she didn’t manage to save him from a dangerous trauma. The boy played fake wrestling with his peers (he was around 4 then) and fell down. It turned out, Kent broke his neck. To treat him, the doctors used pins to fix his head and let the neck to recover. The pins left the scars on his face and back part on his head.

Traumas and other disasters made the rapper’s childhood too dull and painful. But in his teens he found a special hobby, which changed his days for better. At the age of 14 Kent bought a microphone (he found it in WalMart and paid just a couple of dollars for it). Thus, the teenager started to write his own songs and perform them.

To pursue his dream, he left school. This decision made NBA YoungBoy fans to divide into two groups. Some of them blamed the rapper in having “bad pronunciation” and in “counting by his fingers” because of lack of education. The others think, that “teachers tell us to dream about something big, but teach us what they want, which is useless to us”.

In any case, NBA YoungBoy had to look for money, when his career of a rapper brought him no income. This road led him to bad people, who convinced the teenager to commit a robbery. He was arrested and sent to a prison in Tallulah, Louisiana.

During his time in prison Kent thought a lot. He wrote his first songs and chose the stage moniker “NBA YoungBoy”, where “NBA” means Never Broke Again.

Currently the rapper puts all his strength and energy to develop his career.


A lot of fans are interested in NBA YoungBoy personal life and want to see the house he lives at. Currently the rapper is single. He used to date “a bad girl” Danielle Bregoli. He is rumored to have 4 kids with 3 different women.

Nowadays NBA YoungBoy resides in Los Angeles, California. The music star has already bought the house in Biloxi, Ms.

The two-storey mansion is situated in a picturesque calm street. It is secluded by tall trees, which are not sick enough to keep it away from sun rays. The mansion is built of red strong bricks. It has numerous wide windows, which are framed with white plastic and make the house look more festive.

The house has not just numerous rooms and operating premises, but also a spacious garage. They say 12 vehicles can easily fit into it.

As NBA YoungBoy used to tell, he owned white Lamborghini. But he lost it in a terrible car accident. The great vehicle costs astonishing $7, 5 million.

Later it turned out, that the rapper was not the car owner. He rented Lambo and then crashed it. NBA YoungBoy was prosecuted for the accident, and was fined for $350, 000. Fortunately, nobody was killed or injured in that car crash.

“You are living too fast. Your life is ahead of you! Just take one day at a time, otherwise you can be killed”, one of his fans wrote to the rapper after his car accident.
