Floyd Mayweather is showing love to NBA YoungBoy, who has a son with his daughter, Yaya Mayweather.
Floyd appeared on The Pivot Podcast on Tuesday (February 15) and spoke on his relationship with YoungBoy. The boxing legend said, “I’m proud of [YoungBoy Never Broke Again], a very, very talented young kid. One of the biggest artists as far as in music. He’s got a cult-like following. I look at him just like one of my sons. I only want the best for him.”
Floyd also said he hopes YB squashes his “street beef.” Floyd said, “I don’t want him to have beef with anyone. These kids beefing nowadays and don’t even know what they beefing for. So much talent. See what happens to these young kids, they dying on the regular — Pop Smoke. Just so many young rappers and young entertainers, period.” He continued,
“I feel like NBA YoungBoy went away for a while — I like to say went to college for a little bit — he’s back and I’m proud of him. I’m proud of my daughter. And I only want the best for NBA YoungBoy. I’m going to continue to push him and push her for both of them to be great.”

According to Hip Hop DX, YB and Yaya began dating in late 2018. In late 2020, Yaya gave birth to their son later that year. However, since then, their relationship has been on the rocks. In 2020, Yaya was arrested for allegedly stabbing one of NBA YoungBoy’s baby mothers, Lapattra Jacobs, multiple times. As a result, Lapattra suffered severe injuries. Yaya is facing 20-years and her trial is set for later this year.
In January, in an unreleased track titled “Carry On,” YB claims Yaya won’t let him see their son. YB raps,
“She doesn’t want KJ to come, but then she tries to FaceTime him with me, but I don’t want to talk at all/I don’t give a fuck. Go tell the critics, bitch.” Around the time when the song leaked, Social Media showed support for Yaya.
Hopefully, then can work everything out!
