This past Friday (July 15), NBA Youngboy was found not guilty of a felony gun possession charge related to a 2021 arrest that went down in California. Many have celebrated the win for the rapper as he tries to move forward with his life and music career. However, Youngboy reportedly has another gun charge to face, related to a situation in Louisiana. 

In September 2020, Youngboy and a few others were arrested in the middle of a video shoot in front of an abandoned house. Police claim they took Xanax, marijuana, many guns, and other types of paraphernalia. Earlier this year, photo and video evidence that was going to be submitted by the prosecution related to this arrest was tossed by a judge. According to court documents, the case is still in the works. The next conference related to NBA Youngboy’s charge is set to take place on August 2, 2022.

NBA YoungBoy was found not guilty of a felony gun-possession charge on Friday (July 15) in a case stemming from a 2021 high-speed chase in Tarzana, California. 

Prosecutors alleged a gun was recovered from the floorboard of his Mercedes-Benz during the incident, but YoungBoy's lawyer argued that the rapper didn't know the gun was in his vehicle and he panicked when police attempted to pull him over. His attorneys also argued that YoungBoy's fingerprints weren't found on the gun. 

The trial began on Wednesday, and YoungBoy scored an early victory after U.S. District Judge R. Gary Klausner ruled to exclude the use of his lyrics as evidence.

Despite this legal victory, NBA YoungBoy is still facing weapons charges in Louisiana after being arrested along with 16 others during a music video shoot in 2020.
