It’s uncertain why the album has been pushed back but the rapper has run into legal problems and is currently being held without bail in prison in a kidnapping case. YoungBoy was originally arrested on Feb. 25 in Tallahassee, Fla. on an outstanding warrant before being extradited to Georgia.
The rapper was extradited to the state to face aggravated assault, kidnapping and weapons charges, which stem from an altercation he got into with his girlfriend, Jania, at a hotel in Waycross, Ga.
Footage from the hotel shows YoungBoy slamming the woman into the ground outside of the hotel room, before picking her up and roughly carrying her through the hallway. The rapper’s girlfriend has since denied claims of domestic violence, saying the two were just horsing around.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, we good,” Jania raps on a new song she released. “He was pulling me, I was pulling him/That’s how we like to play (that’s just us).”
YoungBoy revealed his upcoming album in January on Instagram, posting a pre-order link for the project. Although a full tracklist has yet to be revealed, the 13-song project will feature the tracks “Outside Today” and “Solar Eclipse.”
