NBA YoungBoy’s Team Has Given Out 500 Thanksgiving Turkeys To His Hometown

NBA YoungBoy is ensuring that 500 families in his hometown of Baton Rouge have a turkey on their Thanksgiving meal.

According to local news source WBRZ, the rapper from the group Colors collaborated with the NAACP on Monday (November 22) to offer 500 free turkeys and a free Thanksgiving meal at Boil & Roux in the state’s capital. Later that night, YoungBoy posted a PSA on his Instagram encouraging people to “stop the violence” in order to keep the positive momentum going.

Even though YoungBoy is generous this Christmas season, he is also competitive when it comes to his career. The Baton Rouge native said he could out-rap Jay-Z in a series of Instagram Stories published on Thursday, November 17, and ridiculed the idea that Drake was in his league during an Instagram Live on Monday night, November 21.

The announcement earlier this month that YoungBoy had exceeded the head of Roc Nation in terms of the number of entries on the Billboard 200 as a solo artist may have been the cause of the Hov remark. Ma, I Got a Family from October, which debuted at No. 7, gave him the edge with 25 entries, only one more than Jay had with 24.

Rappers who have sold their song catalogs have also come under fire recently from YoungBoy, who believes that they are attempting to stay up with him despite failing.
