NBA Youngboy is set to be released from prison after a judge decided to grant him a "conditional bond" — but there's a catch.
The 22-year-old rapper will be placed on house arrest in Utah with military guards, according to DJ Akademiks.
Ask and you shall receive because it looks like NBA Youngboy is about to be a free man.
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.
The rapper also told the judge he'd hire his own security.
As RadarOnline.com 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.
