The artist formerly known as Kentrell DeSean Gaulden continues to be a legal lightning rod.

The Baton Rouge, Louisiana, born rapper better known by his stage name NBA YoungBoy is currently under house arrest in Utah awaiting trial for weapons-related charges. 

Unfortunately, being monitored by the police and in another state entirely has not kept his name out of the headlines.

Tuesday, three men were arrested, and a cache of weapons was found when authorities raided a house belonging to the rapper in Houston, which TMZ reports is where his mother resides.

According to Harris County Sheriff’s Office Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland, the three suspects were arrested on warrants related to a shooting incident that took place in November 2021.

During the incident in November a man get shot multiple times which resulted in "permanent and life-altering injuries," according to Gilliland:

"Investigators were called to the 700 block of Barren Springs after a male complainant was shot multiple times by the three. Leads were developed and the evidence was collected."

The three men arrested, Carleon Gallien, Roymello Williams, and Daryl Brown, are alleged to have committed the attack. The Harris County District Attorney's Office has charged Gallien with two counts of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, Williams with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, and Brown with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.

According to TMZ, while neither NBA YoungBoy nor his mother were there, the men who were arrested were said to be associates of the rapper by police. The celebrity news site also said that the weapons seized included AR-15s, pistols and long guns.

It’s just the latest in a long list of legal run-ins for the 22-year-old artist who released six independent mix tapes before hitting it big with his major labor debut for Atlantic Records in 2018. His first studio album “Until Death Call My Name” peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, anchored by the lead single “Outside Today.”

In the following years, despite spending much of the time incarcerated, he followed up with two No. 1 albums. “Top” in 2020 and 2021’s “Sincerely, Kentrell” — which was released from prison and made him the third artist besides Tupac and Lil Wayne to have a chart-topping album while incarcerated and cemented his position in the rap pantheon.

He was released from jail last October after serving seven months on a $1.5 million bail, posting a $500,000 bond. Then quickly followed his release with his 17th mixtape “Colors” which was followed by an announcement from his producer Jason “Cheese” Goldberg that YoungBoy would be taking a break from music.

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,” Goldberg wrote on Instagram. “We have some amazing songs for you thank you for everything #HealingTime #RockPeace #ForeverBro.
