A Los Angeles team of jurors found NBA YoungBoy not guilty in his federal gun case. His next move is to embark on a nationwide tour.
According to HipHopDX, the Baton Rouge rapper spoke with Mohammed Gangat, a lawyer following YoungBoy’s extensive legal woes.
The rapper stated that his next move is, “A tour, a tour is next. Around the states.”
During his house arrest, which stretched from late October until last week, the 22-year-old rapper had still managed to keep his fans engaged with a surplus of music and visuals to match. In January, he released his 20-track album, Colors. The body of work debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200 charts.

There’s no doubt YoungBoy has plenty of music to perform on his foreseeable tour.
The jury returned a not-guilty verdict in his federal gun case on July 15. He was arrested on Mar. 22, 2021, by federal agents and LAPD, following an executed federal warning from his 2020 arrest in Louisiana. The rapper eluded authorities and was chased on foot after they attempted to pull him over, police say.
After authorities tracked him down with a K-9 unit, a handgun was discovered on the floorboard of his SUV.
While he was found not guilty in that situation, he still faces another case in his hometown of Baton Rouge. He was arrested in Sept. 2020, along with 15 other people, and he is facing drug, felony possession, and stolen firearm charges, per WAFB-9.
BRPD seized handguns, rifles, drugs, $47,000 in cash, several jewelry pieces, and a $300,000 check made out to him. In Dec. 2020, a judge ordered BPD to give the multi-platinum-selling rapper his check and jewelry back.
His Louisiana and California gun cases arose from him entering a 2017 guilty plea to aggravated assault with a firearm in 2016. He was involved in a non-fatal shooting in Baton Rouge. His 10-year prison term was suspended, and he was given three years of probation, which he completed.
His next court date is in August.
