Have you ever heard of elders despising ones youth? Perhaps not but one notion many would agree upon is that young people are the future. While many of NBA Youngboy’s philosophies or actions haven’t garnered a nod of approval some saying rightfully so, the success of this young Black American man is undeniable. Kentrell DeSean Gaulden professionally known as NBA YoungBoy born October 20, 1999 at the brink of a new millennium diligently worked his way into the music scene after independently releasing eight consecutive mixtapes. Gaulden overcame great obstacles personally and societal wise including breaking his neck at a young age while wrestling, causing him to wear a head brace for his spine to heal. An injury of it’s kind was traumatic and left permanent scars. In addition he was able to rise above the statistics for black men in Baton Rouge, Louisiana the place where Alton Sterling was shot dead at a close range by two police officers on July 5, 2016. His new single which is a “top version” of “The Story of OJ” originally by Jay Z drops jewels that young black Americans and people as a whole can certainly benefit from. The no guts no glory song details how he realized cars were depreciating assets, rejects “slave” record deals, and details the importance of artist owning their masters in the music industry. Are you looking forward to watching this young mans growth?
