American rapper, Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, known professionally as YoungBoy Never Broke Again, is facing seven years in prison in a federal firearms case.
Initially, Youngboy and 15 others were taken into custody by the Baton Rouge Police Department. A call had been made to police that “a group of people were on Chippewa Street carrying firearms and filming a rap music video” and weapons were brandished on the set of the video. Numerous individuals fled the scene when police arrived.
Back in March 2021, Youngboy was taken into federal custody in Los Angeles after the LAPD along with the feds attempted to pull over a vehicle that he was in and he got out and ran on foot.
However, officials later set up a perimeter and utilized a K-9 dog which they used to apprehend the rapper. He was later released in October but remains on house arrest in Utah.
According to Rolling Stone, Youngboy’s trial date is now officially set for May 16, for these federal firearms charges, and he is facing seven years in prison.
Last week, several pieces of video evidence were ruled ineligible though, in favor of Youngboy.
The video evidence is said to be evidence on SB memory cards, which were improperly seized by Baton Rouge police outside of Youngboy’s grandfather’s home. There was also an invalid warrant at the time of Youngboy’s arrest, in Baton Rouge. An officer at the scene also claimed that Youngboy was brandishing a weapon at his video shoot. A 9/11 caller was who provided that information to the officer.
