In the photos, YoungBoy Never Broke Again looks disappointed in himself, frowning and looking straight into the camera. Fans weren’t necessarily making fun of him. His girlfriend’s mugshot on the other hand… She has on a devious smile, almost as if she’s proud of what went down. She angles her head downwards and almost sneers at the camera when the shot is taken. One fan commented, “they look like before and after crackhead mugshots.”
After the arrest of 21 Savage, we can all learn from moments like these. These are people’s lives and it shouldn’t be the norm to laugh at somebody’s mugshot. We made Wide Neck famous for that very reason. It can work in the benefit of some and for others, it can completely tear apart their perception of themselves.
