NBA YoungBoy has shared a picture of himself in matching outfits with his kids, despite previously admitting that he’s “not big” on fatherhood.
The Baton Rouge rapper shared a number of pictures on Instagram on Monday (February 12) where he and four of his children are wearing matching camouflage Guapi tracksuits.
YoungBoy referenced his sizeable brood in the caption, writing: “Aye ask where the rest my kids at.”
Check out the post below.
Despite being just 24 years old, NBA YoungBoy is believed to have 11 children by 10 different women. He recently opened up about the topic of fatherhood during an interview with Bootleg Kev while under house arrest in Utah.
While one of his children played on his lap, the rapper was asked how important being a parent is to him, to which he bluntly replied: “I’m not really big on it, to be honest. It’s a crazy topic ’cause I’m not the type to sugarcoat nothing.”
He also said that because of his house arrest, he essentially sits around in one room all day watching TV: “[My kids and I] bond a lot, but I’m mostly really inside.”
YoungBoy’s comments drew the ire of Charlamagne Tha God who subsequently labeled him “Donkey of the Day” during an episode of The Breakfast Club.
Charlamagne began his rant by joking: “Right now, NBA YoungBoy’s kids could almost fill out an entire NBA team roster,” before continuing the basketball comparisons.
“He has 11 kids, but in his words, he’s ‘not really big’ on fatherhood. NBA YoungBoy is treating fatherhood the way the NBA’s Nikola Jokić treats the NBA. You ever hear Jokić talk about basketball?
“The same level of don’t-give-a-eff that Jokić has about basketball, NBA YoungBoy seems to have about being a father to his 11 kids. I shouldn’t have to tell y’all that one of those things is not like the other, okay?”
The radio host then turned serious and explained that he wanted to use YoungBoy’s comments as a “teachable moment.”
“So many of us come from broken homes,” he said. “So many of us had fathers or mothers who weren’t big on having kids. But what bothers me about statements like this is, NBA YoungBoy talks that gangster talk in his records. Not only does he talk that gangster talk, he talks that big money talk.
“But in the words of JAY-Z, a man who don’t care of his family can’t be rich. So don’t talk money talk to me if you’re not big on fatherhood. And as far as being gangster, you can kill thousands of people in your records, but if you’re not big on fatherhood, you’re not G at all to me.”
“Why do you have 11 children?” he continued. “Did it take 11 children to get to the point where you say you’re not big on fatherhood? Listen, we are in the era of generational curse-breaking, okay? Those dysfunctional cycles that we had to deal with? We’re the generation that’s supposed to break those.”
NBA YoungBoy retaliated with a diss track where he rapped: “Tell Charlamange he invited to Grave Digger Mountain/ All he gotta do is pull up on me, n-gga, and talk to me face to face/ So I could bat you in your shit and hit you with this Drac.”
