NBA YoungBoy fans do not play games about the rapper. You can easily find them stanning for their fav across fan pages, comments sections and, of course, his music catalogue. According to Billboard, NBA YoungBoy made history on Monday that includes his album “Sincerely, Kentrell” reaching number one on Billboard 200.

This is actually NBA YoungBoy’s fourth number with the project  “Sincerely, Kentrell.” Now, he also became the first hip-hop artist to hit number one for the last three consecutive years. Apparently, Billboard Charts tweeted saying the only other artist with three consecutive wins is pop singer Taylor Swift.

The album “Sincerely, Kentrell” reportedly earned 137,000 equivalent album units in the U.S., according to Billboard. While he’s semi-new in the industry, NBA YoungBoy has already charted 18 albums on Billboard 200.

As previously reported, NBA YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, was arrested in March 2021 in Los Angeles. The charges are reportedly related to a September 2020 arrest regarding felony possession of a firearm. He was initially granted bond, but it was later revoked after the government filed a motion.

“The only evidence of their motivation behind this decision is the title of the operation, “NEVER FREE AGAIN,” a clear attack on to defendant’s brand “Never Broke Again” and related legal entities,” the court documents state.

Despite serving time, NBA YoungBoy has still found ways to connect with his fanbase. From recorded phone calls to audio clips, the rapper has kept his name going and thriving, just enough to land this honor on the Billboard charts.
