Young Thug is in big, big trouble.
The 30-year-old was arrested on Monday at his Fulton County, Georgia home for conspiracy to violate the RICO act and participation in criminal street gang activity. The most serious charges against him are that he rented a car that was later used in the murder of a rival game member and that he approved a jailhouse hit on rap rival YFN Lucci.
He was denied bond.
Thug, along with Gunna, is among 28 YSL members arrested in a broad gang probe by District Attorney Fani Willis of Fulton County that already swooped up Lucci and may end up ensnaring rappers like Lil Baby and Playboi Cati.
Some of the YSLs will be facing life in prison, with Thug -- who is cited as a gang leader in the indictment-- likely on that list.
Young Thug's attorney has said Thug is not guilty of all charges against him.
Young Thug wasn’t given a bond and will face a life sentence if convicted on all counts. They are treating him as the kingpin of YSL and are using lyrics against him.— Debating Hip-Hop / Future AOTY (@DebatingHipHop_) May 10, 2022
They are also building cases on other Atlanta rappers that involve Lil Baby and Playboi Carti and more.
