NBA YoungBoy may be locked up at the moment, but he wants to help ease the pain for a family who just lost a loved one during a deadly shooting in Miami.
Sources tell us NBA and Atlantic Records want to cover the funeral expenses for 43-year-old Mohamad Jradi, who died earlier this month during an attempt on the hip-hop star’s life.
Jradi was a Hertz rental car employee who unfortunately got caught in the spray of bullets when the hip-hop star and his entourage were targeted while exiting the Trump International Beach Resort Miami on their way to the Rolling Loud Music festival.
Along with Mohamad’s death, three others were injured in the shooting, including YoungBoy’s girlfriend and a 5-year-old boy.
We’re told Atlantic and YoungBoy are “heartbroken” over Jradi becoming a victim, and want to do anything they can to comfort the family.
As of now, we’re told reps have reached out to officials in Florida to locate and speak with Jradi family.
Meanwhile, YoungBoy is sitting in a Louisiana jail cell on a possible probation violation after making a social media post vowing revenge for the shooting. Per the terms of his release, the “Outside Today” rapper was barred from posting on his social media accounts.
For the record, YoungBoy did not participate in the shooting in Miami — he was a target — and the incident remains under investigation.
