The Louisiana star was released on Tuesday under strict home confinement rules. The 21-year-old was ordered to a home in Utah by Chief U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick. The judge imposed a curfew for visitors to the house and ruled that there could be no more than three at a time. Dick must approve anyone coming to the home. While security was not one of the judge's conditions, the rapper's team hired a security team staffed by former military soldiers to patrol the residence as a show of good faith. YoungBoy must also wear a GPS ankle monitor and will have a studio in the home since he is not permitted to leave for work.
YoungBoy has been behind bars since March after being re-arrested in Los Angeles following a run-in with police that involved him attempting to flee on foot. He was one of 16 people arrested during a September 2020 video shoot in Baton Rouge, where police found multiple guns and drugs. He was hit with several federal weapons charges.
While behind bars, the prolific young rapper celebrated the success of his recent album, "Sincerely, Kentrell," which became his fourth to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, attracting more than 186 million on-demand streams.
Welcome home, NBA YoungBoy!
