    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.

    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

Something happened to the original NBA. I really can’t even explain to you what’s going on because you simply won’t understand, it’s too much to go into. i can promise you this is not the same dude, they’ve either done something to him or he has been copied.

    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. 🫡

      @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

We need more people like him speaking up because to make change it takes everyone. The rap industry could learn from NBA!!!!

    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.

"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.

I appreciate that he knows that these young boys are immulating the man he portrays in his music and videoes and that he can be a more positive role model. He is a huge influence on my son and I pray that this message also reaches my son.
