YouTube refuses to promote NBA Youngboy – Manager claims

NBA YoungBoy is on its way to a third number one album; all without the help of YouTube.

At least, that’s what his manager Alex Junnier says. “YouTube told us they couldn’t promote YB because of its image,” Junnier wrote on Instagram in a post that has since been deleted. “Weak ass platform.” Your # 1 artist three years in a row.

NBA YoungBoy has been one of the biggest artists on YouTube in the past.

The now-incarcerated rapper posted 11 music videos in 2018 and 2019. Those videos garnered 100 million views on the platform, reaching more than Drake, DaBaby and other hugely popular rappers. The rapper released his latest album, Sincerely, Kentrell from behind bars. It reached # 1 on the charts without the support of the YouTube promotion.

Junnier also shared some graphics data screenshots in the deleted Instagram post. A screenshot appeared to show that YB continues to outperform other artists on YouTube feeds. In another article, Junnier share “If NBA Youngboy becomes No. 1, he will be the third artist after Lil Wayne and 2pac to be No. 1 behind bars.”

NBA YoungBoy has been behind bars since March 2021 for possession of firearms.

A petition to release the rapper has collected more than 50,000 signatures and calls on President Biden to consider releasing the rapper. After his arrest, Kentrell Goulden entered a not guilty plea on two federal weapons charges.

Both charges stem from an arrest in September 2020 in Baton Rouge. Police responded to numerous questions where the rapper and his team were filming a music video. Officers found several handguns and rifles at the scene. His 21-track album highlights some of his struggles since this incident. He remains in detention, despite attempts by his lawyers to release him.
