The 22-year-old rapper will be placed on house arrest in Utah with military guards, according to DJ Akademiks.

NBA Youngboy has been locked up awaiting trial over gun charges for several months.

As Radar reported, the musician's lawyer proposed a plan earlier this week that would allow him to be released on bond so he could enjoy his brand-new home in the Beehive State.

He claims he has friends and family nearby who will keep him on track until his trial. One is his childhood buddy Kyrie Oliver, who testified that she'd keep a watchful eye on NBA Youngboy.

As Radar previously reported, the prosecutors taking on NBA YoungBoy scoffed at the idea of releasing the rapper claiming he was a danger to the community. They called into question the motives for the rapper's friend to come forward. In court, they revealed YoungBoy had recently paid the woman $600k.

“It also demonstrates that every person Defendant called to testify has a financial stake in him being released. Bedrock Security stands to earn $21,0000/week; Atlantic Records has a more than $2 million investment and intends to build him a studio; and Oliver. Those substantial financial ties make it less likely that they would report Defendant’s violations or deter him from engaging in conduct," the government argued.

The judge, who shut down YounBoy's previous attempts, was clearly swayed by the rapper's recent bond proposal. It's unclear how soon he will be released from prison.
