NBA YoungBoy, who is scheduled to go on trial on Tuesday, July 12 involving a federal gun case, was traveling to with his associate Chris James on a private jet.

Two court cases involving traffic charges will be heard on July 11 and July 12. His trial for possessing an unlawful firearm is set to begin on July 12.

The FBI detained YoungBoy in back in March 2021 after it was claimed that he dodged LAPD officers during an attempted traffic stop for an outstanding federal warrant.

The cops can be heard in this video ordering YoungBoy to get out of his car and turn himself in. One of the policemen can be heard threatening to unleash K-9s in search of him if he doesn't surrender.

The footage was uploaded to social media in March 2021.

YoungBoy's lawyer recently asserted that he was surprised when the rapper was arrested and that he is holding those liable for setting up the arrest and preventing his client from freely surrendering.


The records state that authorities used a significant amount of unneeded force from the military to arrest NBA YoungBoy.

The rapper's attorney also discovered that the mission to detain the rapper was titled β€œNever Free Again,” which clearly linked to the rapper's stage name. The attorney also stated that there is no evidence that the linked guns belonged to YoungBoy or were handled improperly.

After spending seven months at the St. Martin Parish prison in Louisiana, YoungBoy was released after posting a $1.5 million bond in October. The rapper was put under house arrest in Utah after being released from jail.

YoungBoy's court hearing for illegal gun possession is scheduled for Tuesday, July 12, in California. He was accused of being a felon in possession of an unlicensed firearm, to which he has pled not guilty.

According to the attorney who is representing Youngboy, his client was arrested after police found a firearm in his car seat. There's no evidence linking him to the gun. The defense attorney has criticized the California prosecution for lacking any actual evidence to condemn the artist.

The trial is scheduled to begin on Thuesday July 12 and finish on July 14th. Youngboy could face up to10 years in prison if convicted of this charge.

It looks like Youngboy is done with after his album release! A few days ago, the Baton Rouge rapper sent a text message to DJ Akademiks saying he's done with music basically saying he's retiring, he said quote: β€œNo mo after this album, I'm done.”
