NBA Youngboy Makes History On The Billboard Hot 100

Although NBA Youngboy claimed to be blackballed at one point, it hasn’t necessarily impacted his success. He’s managed to cultivate a loyal and dedicated fanbase who will ride out for him. Ultimately, he reached incredible heights on streaming platforms and charts when he puts in limited resources into marketing. It’s truly a testament to his work ethic and standard of quality. These days, the rapper’s maintaining his prolificacy through a number of projects, including Don’t Try This At Home. A week after it dropped, and he’s reached another milestone in his career.

According to Billboard, the Louisiana-based rapper is officially the youngest rapper to have 100 entries on the Hot 100. It’s no surprise, given the amount of music he’s released since August. However, it’s another testament to his adoring fanbase and work ethic. The success of “Big Truck” earned the 23-year-old rapper this accolade. Now, YB joins an exclusive club of artists, including Lil Baby, Drake, Future, and Taylor Swift, as the 13th artist to chart 100+ entries on the Hot 100. 

NBA Youngboy’s Reign Continues

NBA Youngboy’s latest project, Don’t Try This At Home, marks his second project on Motown Records. Following an incredible run in late 2022, that included projects like The Last Slimeto and Ma’ I Got A Family, the Baton Rouge rapper came out swinging at the top of 2023 to launch a new chapter in his career. He kicked off the year with I Rest My Case before coming through with his latest body of work, which landed at #5 on the Billboard 200 with 60K units sold in the first week. The project includes features from Nicki Minaj, Post Malone, The Kid Laroi, and Mariah The Scientist.

Mainstream domination aside, NBA Youngboy also experienced some new milestones in his personal life. A few weeks ago, the rapper welcomed his 11th child. Although information regarding the child remains minimum, fans identified the child’s mother as Drew Valentina. Just a few months prior, he and his fiancée Jazlyn Mychelle welcomed their son. Evidently, his family is growing just as quickly as his catalog. We’ll keep you posted on anymore updates on NBA Youngboy.
