While many Gen Z rappers are diversifying their investments and building outside businesses, NBA YoungBoy has focused on music. And, even while he’s incarcerated, his team is still trying to find a way for him to keep making music. Additionally, the “Bandit” rapper would have been among the highest-paid rappers of 2020, according to XXL Magazine.

He’s so dedicated to his craft that he actually asked a judge to allow him to work from his home studio while surrounded by former military armed guards, according to Rolling Stone. And while the case is still pending before a federal judge, this decision is proof that no matter what life throws at him, NBA YoungBoy will dedicate himself wholeheartedly to his craft. It’s no wonder his net worth is so high.

As of August 2022, NBA Youngboy’s value is estimated at $6 million.

Musical career

NBA YoungBoy is one of the only rappers today who makes most of his money from actual music. His musical career started at the end of 2017 when he signed with Atlantic Records. Then, in January 2018, he released his debut single, “Outside Today,” which led to his debut album, “Until Death Call My Name,” peaking at number 7 on the Billboard charts.

In September 2021, “Sincerely Kentrell” dropped and almost immediately went to the top of the charts. YoungBoy NBA then became one of only three rappers – the other two being 2Pac and Lil Wayne – to have chart-topping albums while incarcerated.

According to Billboard, NBA YoungBoy has released three studio albums, one compilation album, fifteen mixtapes, three collaborative mixtapes, three extended plays, and twenty-six singles (including six as a featured artist).

He started producing music when he was only fourteen. In 2014, he released his first mixtape, “Life Before Fame” as NBA YoungBoy. He followed it up with a series of mixtapes including “Mind of a Menace”, “Mind of a Menace 2” and “Mind of a Menace 3”.

In 2016, YoungBoy first rose to prominence with his super mixtape “38 Baby,” which received millions of views on YouTube. He followed it up with a song-for-song ‘rap beef’ with fellow Baton Rouge rapper Scotty Cain.

In May 2017, YoungBoy released the hit song “Untouchable”. The single peaked at number 95 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He followed it with a video for his song ’41’.

YoungBoy’s career took a meteoric rise with his 2018 single “Outside Today.” The song became the highest charting song of his career, peaking at number 35 on the Billboard Hit 100.
