YoungBoy has encouraged artists not to sign with Atlantic Records before
After recently returning to Instagram, NBA YoungBoy has been using the platform to express his grievances with his home record label, Atlantic. On Sunday (February 13), the 22-year-old rapper hopped on IG stories seemingly commanding $100M from the label, which has been active for around 60 years. “I need 100 m’s Now,” he wrote.
Last week, YoungBoy also asked other artists not to sign contracts with Atlantic writing, “Don’t sign to Atlantic.”
Earlier in the month, the Baton Rouge rapper took to YouTube to slam the label. “Why blackball me, I’m the good guy!!??”
He added, “I was going #1 two weeks straight with a mixtape so they took it down off the charts.”
“I don’t give a f**k you still can’t stop me don’t sign to Atlantic if you an artist they not gone support you especially if you live a certain way,” he went on.
During a conversation with DJ Akademiks in December 2021, the famed artist revealed that he has one more album to fulfill his contractual obligations with Atlantic. “They ain’t gonna come back to me, because I ain’t trying to hear s**t they got to say,” he said.
Youngboy signed a $2M deal with the company in 2016 to offer five albums.
