Despite getting creative to bring his album release party to fans while on house arrest, NBA YoungBoy disappointed attendees by failing to show up to his own live stream event.
The Elevate Lounge in Los Angeles was filled with fans and friends eager to hear the rapper’s new album and see a live stream video appearance from the artist, who has been under house arrest in Utah for gun possession charges.
The plan was for the album to play at midnight and for NBA YoungBoy to join in once it dropped. However, a source with direct knowledge claims that the rapper fell asleep, causing him to miss the event. NBA YoungBoy’s team refutes the claim, stating that technical difficulties prevented the artist from connecting with his fans via Zoom and FaceTime.
Despite the setback, NBA YoungBoy’s latest album, “Don’t Try This At Home,” was still released on time. Fans still enjoyed hearing the new tunes, even though their favorite rapper was absent from the event.
