Social media users are sharing their reactions after NBA Youngboy opened up about fatherhood during a recent interview. As The Shade Room previously reported, the 24-year-old rapper welcomed his tenth child with his wife, Jazlyn Mychelle, in September 2022.
NBA Youngboy’s Comments On Fatherhood
The 24-year-old rapper sat down for an exclusive interview with Bootleg Kev, published via YouTube on Monday, January 8. About two minutes into the interview, Kev asked Youngboy to share “how important” fatherhood is to him.
“Um… I’m not really big on it, to be honest,” he replied.
Kev explained that he perceives the rapper to be a “family man.”
“Yeah, but I’m only in here ’cause you here,” YoungBoy told Kev.
To note, the interview appeared to take place at the rapper’s residence, inside his living room. Additionally, one of Youngboy’s sons was also present for the discussion.
“See this crazy topic ’cause I’m not the type to sugarcoat nothing. But I’m four walls all day, every day,” the rapper explained, referring to his love for recording music in the studio.
Youngboy then clarified that he does “bond a lot” with his children. However, he spends most of his days “stuck inside one room.” The rapper explained that he “wouldn’t say” he’s “going through a lot.” But being “alone in his thoughts” is his way of “staying sane.”
During the conversation, NBA Youngboy also revealed that he’s been smoking cigarettes since the age of seven and shared his thoughts on possibly recording a joint project with Rod Wave.
