A new viral video of NBA Youngboy was leaked onto social media yesterday, by his ex Yaya Mayweather - daughter of boxing great Floyd Mayweather.
The video shows Youngboy walking around in circles, delusional - and talking to the wall. Many are speculating that the rapper was high on some type of serious narcotic-like angel dust.
The video has many of the rapper's fans scared for him, and some are calling for his friends and family to stage an intervention.
Angel dust is a powerful drug used for its mind-altering effects. The drug causes hallucinations, distorted perceptions of sounds, and violent behavior.
As a recreational drug, angel dust is typically smoked but may be taken by mouth, snorted, or injected. It may also be mixed with cannabis or tobacco.
Adverse effects may include seizures, coma, addiction, and an increased risk of suicide.
Chemically, angel dust is a member of the arylcyclohexylamine class, and pharmacologically, it is a dissociative anesthetic.
NBA YoungBoy's real name is Kentrell Gaulden and he was born on October 20, 1999, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
YoungBoy broke his neck while wrestling as a toddler, the injury requiring a head brace until the spine healed. The brace left permanent scars on his forehead. YoungBoy was raised mainly by his maternal grandmother due to his father being sentenced to 55 years in prison. He dropped out of ninth grade and told his mom he wanted to focus on his music career and was soon arrested for robbery and sent to a detention center in Tallulah, Louisiana. While there, he began writing lyrics for his debut project.
After he was released from the detention center, Gaulden's grandmother died of heart failure and Gaulden moved in with his friend and fellow Baton Rouge rapper, NBA 3Three (also known as OG 3Three). The two then used acts of criminality to begin to pay for studio time.
