A lot of folks believe rap music -- in particular NBA YoungBoy -- led Ja Morant down a bad path.
While Morant is a huge YB fan, it seems a bit unfair to single him out.
YB has been denouncing violence and getting religion while Ja is pulling up eight deep on high schools.
When Ja returned from his eight-game suspension for waving a gun at a strip club earlier this week, he ended up quoting YoungBoy in his post-game interview, rapping the line "It's a parade inside my city" from the YB track "Fresh Prince of Utah." It's a line he's used before.
YoungBoy has made it clear he approves.
Ja Morant officially gets the NBA Youngboy co-sign.😭💯— Hip Hop Ties (@HipHopTiesMedia) March 26, 2023

"& you know it’s gonna be a parade forreal behind you," he typed on social.
Do you think Ja will be bringing a parade to Memphis anytime soon?
