TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A 19-year-old Louisiana rapper has been arrested in Florida on a fugitive warrant from Georgia.
  
Leon County Sheriff's Office records show Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, known by his fans for his artist name NBA YoungBoy or YoungBoy Never Broke Again, was booked into custody Sunday in Tallahassee. The report says Gaulden fled from justice in Waycross, Georgia, near the Florida state line. A spokesman for the sheriff's office did not immediately respond to inquiries about the charges he faces.
  
YoungBoy has lately seen success with singles such as "Outside Today" and "No Smoke," which have appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
  
The arrest is not Gaulden's first run-in with the law. The Advocate newspaper said a state judge put him on three years of active supervised probation in August for his role in a nonfatal drive-by shooting in 2016.
