The Year of YB
Despite having legal issues earlier this year, YoungBoy is continually showing us how 2022 is the ‘Year of YB‘ with the welcoming of his tenth child with girlfriend, Jazlyn Mychelle, getting evidence thrown out in his gun case, and releasing 5 projects this year thus far: ‘Colors’, ‘The Last Slimeto’, ‘Realer 2’, ‘3800 Degrees’, and most recently ‘Ma’ I Got A Family’ which dropped this month and has the single ‘I Admit’ featuring Nicki Minaj.
Clearly he is feelin’ himself this year and fans are too!
Roommates, do you think YoungBoy can drop ten albums by the end of 2022?
