 Youngboy has had another recent run-in with the law over the past year as he was arrested in his native Louisiana back in September.

The rapper along with 15 others were taken in on possession of schedule I drugs, manufacturing/distributing a schedule II drug, and manufacturing/distributing schedule IV drugs.

‘Kentrell is not guilty of any crimes,’ his attorney James Manasseh said in a statement to WAFB9

‘There’s nothing in the report that indicates that he did anything wrong. They arrested several people and there was no indication that he had any guns or drugs on him at the time of the arrest. I ultimately believe he will be found innocent in all of this.’
