NBA YoungBoy is slamming his label.

The mixtape Colors is YoungBoy's 17th mixtape, which features contributions from Quando Rondo and Internet Money.

After releasing  Colors, the mixtape was deleted from Apple 's rankings, YoungBoy Never Broke Again has called out his label.

The Baton Rouge, Louisiana rapper returned after the release of his new mixtape Colors, accusing Atlantic Records of blackballing him by deleting the project from streaming outlets.

YB criticized Atlantic Records for reportedly deleting his mixtape from the Apple Music chart in a comment uploaded on his YouTube profile through the community tab on Monday (Jan. 31).

“Why black ball me I'm the good guy,” YoungBoy wrote on his YouTube Community profile. “I was going #1 two weeks straight with a mixtape so they took it down off the charts I don't give a f**k you still can't stop me.”

YoungBoy also advised other rappers to avoid signing with Atlantic Records. “Don't sign to Atlantic if you artist they not gone support you especially if you live a certain way,” he said.

Colors, a mixtape by YoungBoy Never Broke Again, was released on January 21 and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 list.

YB's personal life looks to be in chaos, despite his worry over his position on the Apple Music rankings.

YoungBoy's followers showed their support for him by signing a petition to have Atlantic cancel his contract and return his masters.

“His music is not promoted by the label, and he is not assisted in any way by that label (Atlantic Records),” wrote the petition organizer. “They simply sit and collect money. We need a change right now; WE are sick of labels exploiting their artists and refusing to let them out of the cheap contract that they signed when they were younger…”

Authorities in Texas claim they've detained three of YoungBoy Never Broke Again's accomplices.

Three guys connected to the controversial rapper were detained on Tuesday (Jan. 25) when SWAT stormed the Louisiana rapper's Houston residence.

The names of the three people arrested were verified by a representative from the Harris County Sheriff's Office: Roymellow Williams, Daryl Brown, and Carleon Gallien.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office in Houston, Texas, searched the residence on Wednesday (Jan. 26). The investigation resulted in arrests and the confiscation of several firearms.

YoungBoy has been placed under house arrest in Utah while awaiting trial on weapons allegations. After posting a $500,000 bail, the 22-year-old musician was freed from jail in October.

The rapper was not there for the unexpected takedown since he is now under house detention in Utah due to his federal guns conviction. NBA YoungBoy's mother is also said to have been absent throughout the raid and arrest.

Producer Jason “Cheese” Goldberg revealed that YoungBoy will be taking a break from music shortly after the release of the mixtape Colors.

“PSA: A select few songs probably (maybe) will drop from now until then but Top will not be seen or heard from into his album approximately #6months from now we have some amazing songs for you thank you for everything #HealingTime #RockPeace #ForeverBro.”
