NBA YoungBoy prioritises money over music.
The rapper from Baton Rouge has stated that he would give up his rap career for $100 million. He revealed in an Instagram Story that he would quit for nine figures by holding up his hard drive containing his music.
“You can have it for 100 million, and I’ll never rap on anything again,” YoungBoy wrote in the caption.
YoungBoy may not have $100 million, but he recently signed a lucrative deal with Motown. The contract’s terms have not been disclosed, but Variety reports that it was “highly competitive.” Previously, he was signed to Atlantic Records.
This is not the first time YoungBoy has threatened to leave the music industry. He appeared to be contemplating retirement in July.
“Say I ain’t fw this rap sh*t no more, after this album I’m done as long as my family str8, ima be good 4 life,” he wrote to a friend in a message.
He made headlines last week when he claimed he could outrap JAY-Z. “Jay-Z can’t out rap me boy,” he wrote on social media during his feud with his Never Broke Again labelmate.
Regardless of his feelings, the prolific rapper shows no signs of slowing down. This year, he released five albums: Ma’ I Got a Family, 3800 Degrees, Colors, The Last Slimeto, and Better Than You, a collaboration with DaBaby.
