NBA YoungBoy bared it all on Sunday (June 25), posting a vulnerable message to his Instagram Stories. about his incarcerated father. As reported by The Fader, YoungBoy’s dad was locked away for a “robbery gone wrong.” His father has been in prison since YoungBoy was 8 years old. In fact, he’s still serving a 55-year prison sentence.
In a bittersweet message, the “Lonely Child” spitter addressed his father. By using social media he spoke to his pops and the public. A photo of a man—who appears to be his father—is used as the background.
“No matter if I see you in the right way or the wrong way again my n###a, I’m gone be smiling,” the first portion of the message said. “I went thru this experience on my own you built that one b#### I’m trying [to] tell you. I’m on top of the love, Jeff.”
