American rapper YoungBoy Never Broken Again has been granted a conditioned-release after spending 6 months in jail this evening.
The news comes just days after YoungBoy’s legal team asked a judge to grant their conditional bond release, stating he was willing to relocate to Utah for house arrest and would hire a security firm to enforce his detention.
Reports says, YoungBoy’s record label also pledged to build a recording studio in the Utah residence, allowing the artist—real name Kentrell Gaulden—to continue making music while in confinement.
Despite conflicting reports, YoungBoy’s legal team has confirmed that bail has been set. What the specific terms of his release are, have not been relesed to the press.
Chief U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick previously denied YoungBoy’s motion for release on bond, saying the rapper was “inclined toward reckless, illegal, dangerous behavior […] and no combination of bond conditions could ensure the community’s safety.”
YoungBoy is being held at St. Martin Parish Correctional Center in his home state of Louisiana, where he’s been awaiting trial since April. A federal grand jury indicted the rapper on firearm-related charges back in March. He was arrested in Los Angeles about two weeks later and transported back to Louisiana.
