    When he said he's terrified of people because we can be so cruel and it's like we can't control ourselves... Damn.. that boy has experienced too much pain and it's made him so introverted and humble.. you can tell he's been doing a lot of self reflection in his time at home. Love him ❤️

    As a father and a son. I am shook a bit by this interview. I heart the pain in his voice and mild sadness. I also see the low-key spiritual warfare his is battling. Many young black men like him just need an identity of hope. Black men, black youth, black boys, black people are a good people. We just need the right tools to show the world who we really are. Good for NBA.

      @Yaboi soe🖤 I don’t think he ever intended to do anything wrong by making music but I think it’s powerful to admit that what you put out for entertainment may have had a negative impact on impressionable youth and people.

      @Awaizani ngga obviously not everybody. Some people can differentiate between music an artist makes about the life they live and that persons own life. But young boy acknowledged the fact that those who can’t differentiate(mainly young people) and think it’s cool to live the life he raps about and implements shi he raps about into their own lives is something negative that he has done. Those people are the youth who are negatively affected by his music and he understands that he’s at fault for that

      It's posion but now he has a chance to produce years of music that uplifts people. Whatever his journey is I am excited for him but he at least seems to be honest about who he is. I see someone that is coming into their own and is becoming mature and I hope he is able to do good things going forward. We need more people like him speaking up because to make change it takes everyone. The rap industry could learn from NBA!!!!

    YB taking accountability of the message he’s put out over the years and recognizing it wasn’t a healthy message for the youth and taking steps to shift that energy in a positive direction is heartwarming, love or hate him you can’t deny he’s grown so much as a person and artist, can’t wait too see how he progresses in the near future

    Bro. I’m very proud of this young man. Us as rappers eventually realize the genocide we’ve spoken into the air. That’s y I myself have been leaning towards making more positive music. We all were fatherless so we looked up to the goons. When we realized they led us astray and we have done the same we need to make a change and try to gather the youth instead of destroy them the same way we were destroyed. Hip Hop is a bastard culture. This is a perfect transition into a positive change for our children. I salute you YoungBoy. In my eyes your officially a young man. 🫡

      @0to220 yb was cool with it LOL. It was only when the fame and money came to him he started acting hard and gangsta. Its ok. We all know its true. He was never a killer. "Say lil one, you know you aint livin like that mane, you get a deal and you done turned to a killer, when you started doin all that mane?" - Da Real Gee Money. So stop the fkn cap. Gee Money was with him since a lil boy. He knew the true him. And thats fine. Just dont deny it, when we both know its the truth. Sure he grew up in the hood, but that doesnt make him a killer, nor anyone. Some just arent like that, but come from that environment. Anyways, im done with this subject now. Ive said whats been needed to say. Bye

      @John Doe bro you don’t know what you talking about, when Yb was beefing with his cousin boozilla, gmoney was trying to save yb life that’s why Gee said “had me lookin for yo cousin he wanted to kill ya” and he claimed YB “switched up” u can only switch up on someone you close with🤦🏾‍♂️ gee money f’d with YB sister and bragged about it and expected yb to be cool with it

    He's shy yes but y'all missing what he's saying. "He's terrified of people" because of what he's seen in that industry! Him saying he's hurt people with his music is just that, the lyrics, chants, and subliminals they are made to put in these songs. We gotta pray for him and that they don't expire him.

    Respect for being vulnerable. For not being afraid to express himself. Many dudes from the hood don’t perceive that as strength but it’s stronger than being a gangsta. That’s easy. It doesn’t take much but be vulnerable when everyone looks at you as this tough guy. That’s Tough. Respect Youngboy. You are a Young Man.
