NBA Young boy Signs With Motown Records
The signing of a contract with Motown Records has provided NBA YoungBoy with a fresh start in the competitive world of music.
Motown, which is part of Universal Music Group, was already known since YB's Never Broke Again collective is housed there for releases.
The Never Broke Again group has already put out two albums through Motown. On Friday, October 28, they will put out a third album called
Nightmare on 38th Street.
When NBA YoungBoy finally releases songs under the Motown label in 2023, his shift to the label will be considered official.
For now, he'll keep flooding the streets through Atlantic. He already has four top 10 projects on the Billboard 200, which is the most of any artist in 2022.
The agreement's details weren't made public, but the bidding war was called "competitive." YoungBoy has hinted to a $60 million deal with Birdman's Cash Money Records.
Last week, NBA YoungBoy came back with his Ma' I Got A Family mixtape, which he made with DJ Drama. Nicki Minaj and Yeat helped out on it.
If the project hits the Billboard 200, as expected, he'll pass JAY-Z in chart entries. YoungBoy and Hov share 25 entries.
The 23-year-old doesn't seem ready to slow down just yet, as he has promised to give fans 10 projects before 2022 is over.
