    When he said he's terrified of people because we can be so cruel and it's like we can't control ourselves... Damn.. that boy has experienced too much pain and it's made him so introverted and humble.. you can tell he's been doing a lot of self reflection in his time at home. Love him ❤️

    As a father and a son. I am shook a bit by this interview. I heart the pain in his voice and mild sadness. I also see the low-key spiritual warfare his is battling. Many young black men like him just need an identity of hope. Black men, black youth, black boys, black people are a good people. We just need the right tools to show the world who we really are. Good for NBA.

I am very wary and terrified of people and I hate talking to them and very much just rather be left alone, it sucks that I have to put on a act like I am the life of the party and so charismatic when inside I know that I am the total opposite.

    Bro. I’m very proud of this young man. Us as rappers eventually realize the genocide we’ve spoken into the air. That’s y I myself have been leaning towards making more positive music. We all were fatherless so we looked up to the goons. When we realized they led us astray and we have done the same we need to make a change and try to gather the youth instead of destroy them the same way we were destroyed. Hip Hop is a bastard culture. This is a perfect transition into a positive change for our children. I salute you YoungBoy. In my eyes your officially a young man. 🫡

      @Awaizani ngga obviously not everybody. Some people can differentiate between music an artist makes about the life they live and that persons own life. But young boy acknowledged the fact that those who can’t differentiate(mainly young people) and think it’s cool to live the life he raps about and implements shi he raps about into their own lives is something negative that he has done. Those people are the youth who are negatively affected by his music and he understands that he’s at fault for that

I see someone that is coming into their own and is becoming mature and I hope he is able to do good things going forward. We need more people like him speaking up because to make change it takes everyone. The rap industry could learn from NBA!!!!

      @0to220 yb was cool with it LOL. It was only when the fame and money came to him he started acting hard and gangsta. Its ok. We all know its true. He was never a killer. "Say lil one, you know you aint livin like that mane, you get a deal and you done turned to a killer, when you started doin all that mane?" - Da Real Gee Money. So stop the fkn cap. Gee Money was with him since a lil boy. He knew the true him. And thats fine. Just dont deny it, when we both know its the truth. Sure he grew up in the hood, but that doesnt make him a killer, nor anyone. Some just arent like that, but come from that environment. Anyways, im done with this subject now.

    Respect for being vulnerable. For not being afraid to express himself. Many dudes from the hood don’t perceive that as strength but it’s stronger than being a gangsta. That’s easy. It doesn’t take much but be vulnerable when everyone looks at you as this tough guy. That’s Tough. Respect Youngboy. You are a Young Man.

    He's shy yes but y'all missing what he's saying. "He's terrified of people" because of what he's seen in that industry! Him saying he's hurt people with his music is just that, the lyrics, chants, and subliminals they are made to put in these songs. We gotta pray for him and that they don't expire him.
