Fans of YoungBoy Never Broke Again are on a mission to free the incarcerated rapper.
As identified by HipHopDX, a Change.org petition to launch the 21-year-old rapper has amassed more than 111,000 signatures as of Thursday night. The petition was created by consumer “YB Supporter” and calls on President Joe Biden to free the Baton Rouge artist from jail. The on-line request includes a quick breakdown of the YoungBoy’s most recent authorized troubles, which stem from a September 2020 arrest in Louisiana, where he and 16 others were charged with drug- and weapons-related prices during a video shoot.
Though YoungBoy was launched the next day, he was again in police custody in March of this 12 months following a high-speed chase in Los Angeles. The LAPD claimed the rapper fled from police during an tried visitors cease on an impressive warrant, which was related to the September prices in his home state. Authorities said they pursued the rapper’s car for a quick time, till he ultimately obtained out and began operating. He was apprehended shortly after and has remained behind bars ever since.
YoungBoy’s authorized team argued the rapper was unfairly focused by police, and described his March arrest as a “wildly unnecessary militaristic display of force and intimidation.”
The Change.org petition factors out that the rapper’s subsequent courtroom dates aren’t scheduled till later this month, but urged Biden to grant him a launch before his twenty second birthday on Oct. 20.
“It is with great belief that Mr. Gaulden would see this as a great opportunity to ameliorate himself as a person and an artist,” the petition reads. “We have watched him grow over the years and he has much more time to better himself. Being granted a release by the president himself would be life-changing and historical. Not only would the rapper be able to be with his family and friends, but he would be able to provide music for his fans and live his life.”
Earlier this week, YoungBoy’s Sincerely, Kentrell album debuted atop the Billboard 200, making him only the third rapper to launch a No. 1 album whereas in custody. The feature-less project delivered 21 tracks, together with the beforehand launched singles “White Teeth,” “Nevada,” and “Life Support.”
