After the negative experience of dealing with Atlantic Records, NBA YoungBoy declined the label’s $25 million deal for YoungBoy to resign. This was reported by Dj Akademiks on a recent Twitch live stream. “NBA YoungBoy is leaving. He will not be resigning,” he stated. “He didn’t like their offers. I can tell you they offered him like $25 million, and he turned it down.”

As you can see, there’s a fair argument that YoungBoy is one of the label’s most profitable artists as he can make easy numbers on all platforms. He’s quickly outgrown the original contract he signed, and it’s sparked many issues with their relationship.

YoungBoy’s Beef With His Label

As mentioned above, YoungBoy Never Broke Again speaks out against his label regularly for different reasons. For starters, he acknowledged how Atlantic Records blackballs him when dealing with his opinion. A key point of NBA YoungBoy’s when the label removed his last project, Colors, from the Billboard charts after its success in the number rankings.

“I was going #1 two weeks straight with a mixtape, so they took it down off the charts [laughing emoji]. I don’t give a f*** you still can’t stop me,” the viral rapper expressed on social media. It’s odd to hear that Atlantic isn’t supporting one of their most prominent artists as much as they should be. Take a look at his full tweet on the matter below:
