Youngboy Never Broke Again Signs With Motown



The Baton Rouge, Louisiana native’s latest album ‘Ma’ I Got A Family’ which dropped on Friday (Oct. 21) marked his last on his deal with Atlantic Records and his sixth of the year, yes, you read that correctly.

Earlier today, it was reported that 23-year-old rapper Youngboy Never Broke Again – born Kentrell Gaulden – officially signed with the renowned Motown Records. The announcement came after a lot of speculation that the rapper had signed to frequent collaborator and mentor Birdman under his legendary Cash Money Records label. Gaulden worked with the label in the past for his Never Broke Again collective, signing a joint venture with the company last year. Together, they released two compilation albums with 2021’s ‘Never Broke Again: The Compilation Volume 1’ & 2022’s ‘Green Flag Activity’ with their third, ‘Nightmare on 38th Street’ dropping on Oct. 28 led by the single “Searching” that was released last Friday.

This year alone we’ve watched as Youngboy released project after project, ultimately releasing four in the past two months. As a result, he charted four top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 this year – more than any other act this year – putting him in a class all by himself.

Gaulden burst onto the scene in 2015, signing a deal with Atlantic Records just two years after. Since then, he’s been a hot commodity in the music industry. Charting 24 albums on the Billboard 200 – 11 that were top 10, four of those being No. 1. According to Luminate, Youngboy’s album catalog has earned 16.75 million equivalent album units while his catalog of songs hold 29.04 billion on-demand official U.S. streams.
