An NBA YoungBoy look-a-like was found dead in Union Springs, Alabama.
According to WSFA-12, the unidentified body, that had a strikingly similar appearance to the rapper, was discovered on Friday (Jan. 28) in the wooded area of Hicks Industrial Road, Union Springs Police Chief Ronnie Felder confirmed.
HipHopDx later reported that the body was identified as a NBA Youngboy doppelgänger named NCAA YoungBoy. NCAA YoungBoy has almost 180,000 followers on Instagram and his social media bio shows that he has been hired as a YoungBoy lookalike in Atlanta and Alabama.
The State Bureau of Investigation is currently handling the death investigation; it is still unclear how the man died, WSFA reports.
In other YoungBoy news, his beef with NLE Choppa and Lil Durk intensified last month. The Louisiana rapper has released two songs “Bring The Hook” and “Know Like I Know” that fans believe have been diss tracks aimed at Choppa and Durk.
Taking to his Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 19), YoungBoy posted a photo of himself posing on the floor next to his money that spelled out an alarming phrase.
“You n****s gone die,” the bills spelled out. In the next photo, the “Bandit” artist is seen squatting next to another phrase that says “stay safe.”
While his ominous photos weren’t directly aimed at anyone specifically, fans are trying to connect the dots to NLE Choppa and Lil Durk.
On Tuesday (Jan. 25) a home in Texas where NBA Youngboy’s mother, Sherhonda Gaulden, lives and the rapper owns was reportedly the target of a SWAT raid that resulted in the arrests of three men and seizure of multiple weapons, according to TMZ. AR-15’s, pistols and other guns were seized, TMZ reports.
It is unclear whether Gaulden was home when officers arrived.
Thomas Gilliland, a spokesperson for the Sheriff's department, told the celebrity news outlet that the arrests are related to a November shooting where a man was shot in the head but survived.
Most recently, YoungBoy and his girlfriend Jazlyn Mychelle posed with their daughter, HotNewHipHop notes. His child with Mychelle is reportedly his eighth, born not soon after Yaya Mayweather welcomed their son Kentrell Gaulden Jr.
