Despite the fact that NBA YoungBoy is still quite young, he has managed to do a lot in the rap industry. He has dropped several mixtapes and worked with many artists including Lil Yachty, Moneybagg Yo, and A Boogie wit da Hoodie. He is also known for his chart-topping song Outside Today. However, there is one thing that most fans are curious about: the noticeable scars on his forehead. What are they from, and what is he up to in 2018?
NBA YoungBoy explains, in a youtube video, that the scars on his forehead are from a halo brace. He broke his neck as a toddler while play wrestling and required the use of this medical device in order to heal properly. It is a large metal contraption that’s screwed into the person’s head and it limits their movement so that their spinal injury can heal properly.
He went on to say that he feels very lucky to be alive because the accident could have been much worse. He was fortunate enough to get help quickly and he believes that this experience is what has helped him become such a successful rapper. He is not one to take things lightly and he always strives for success. He has been able to work with some of the best in the business and his music is very popular. His sound is unique and he has gained a lot of attention for his style of rap.
