Young Thug, real name Jeffery Lamar Williams, was arrested last month and charged with attempted murder and participation in criminal street gangs.

Authorities accused him of renting a car used to stage a drive-by shooting in 2015 that killed 26-year-old Donovan Thomas.

His trial is scheduled for January 9, 2023.

The rapper’s arrest comes as a result of a larger indictment brought by a grand jury that names 28 members and employees of his label, YSL Records.

The 56-count indictment cites their writings as conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

According to the New York Times, it’s a whopping 88 pages long.

Gunna, Yak Gotti, PeeWee Roscoe and Young Thug’s brother Unfoonk have also been charged.

All of the charges against Young Thug are felonies.

Defense attorney Brian Steel said in a statement: “I will give you the answer to each allegation: Mr. Williams has committed no crime and we will fight to the last drop of my blood to acquit him.”

Shortly after the news broke, the hitmaker’s mug shot was released.

THE CASE

According to Seiden, prosecutors are charging YSL with being a “criminal street gang that began in late 2012 in the Cleveland Avenue area of ​​ATL.

“YSL claims to be part of the national Bloods gang.”

Young Thug is said to be a founding member of the group.
