It took NBA Youngboy just four years to hit the milestone.
Despite being surrounded by multiple legal troubles, Louisiana rapper NBA YoungBoy continues to break caeeer records. As a Monday (Jan. 31) tweet from Chart Data pointed out, YoungBoy is the first rapper in history to chart 20 albums on Billboard 200 in just under four and half years since his breakthrouh in 2017.
Of the 20 albums the “Flossin” rapper has charted on Billboard 200, there are four No.1 projects including AI Youngboy 2, 38 Baby 2, Top, and Sincerely, Kentrell. There are also five Top 5s and eight Top 10s. It is worth noting that Youngboy currently has only two studio albums under his belt: Top and Sincerely Kentrell. This means the rest of the projects he has charted are commercial mixtapes and EPs.
YoungBoy started making buzz in 2016 as a teenager and had his big break the following year. Since the begining of his career, the Baton Rouge rapper has been dropping two or more projects almost every year, making his present accomplishments a result of his hard work and consistency over the time.
The multi-platinum rapper is on house arrest in Utah in connection to his Louisiana gun case. He is currently working on his third studio album which might drop in six months.
