There has been a lot of drama surrounding Young Thug this year. One of the most notable was earlier in the year, when Young Thug and Bryan Williams, aka Birdman, were mentioned in an indictment, which stated that they had plotted to assassinate Lil Wayne in response to a $51 million lawsuit the “No Worries” singer had filed against the Cash Money Records label owned by Baby.
The plot was supposedly uncovered after the arrest of Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, who was alleged to have fired at Lil Wayne’s tour bus in April, this year. According to TMZ, an indictment accessed by the site stated that Winfrey, who had been Young Thug’s tour manager, called a phone linked to Birdman after the shooting incident. He is also said to have followed Weezy’s entourage to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where he and his crew stopped after the incident.
The following is an excerpt of the report.
“According to the docs, moments after Winfrey shot up the bus in Atlanta… he called a phone owned by Birdman.
Adding further suspicion — after that call, Winfrey drove to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel… where Wayne’s entourage stopped after the shooting. Cops don’t say it in the indictment, but the insinuation is Winfrey was told to go finish the job… but as we reported, police had met Wayne’s entourage at the hotel to investigate the shooting.”
However, Birdman denounced the allegations, stating he would never hurt Lil Wayne.
Moving on to the latest happenings, Young Thug yesterday made a threat against Plies for posting a video of his daughter on Instagram of her saying “I’m motherf**kin’ tired.”
However Young Thug’s problem with the clip was not his daughter’s language, but the hashtags Plies had captioned, which read as follows.
“I’m motherf**kin’ tired,” Thugger took issue with the hashtag Plies employed, in which he called the child a “bih,” writing “#BihFeelLikeMeBih #AintNoMixtapeBih #BihIsDiggingInDatNose #SameShitIBeTellingABih.”
An incensed Young Thug left the following comment on the post.
“Get this s**t off you page or its problems my n***a, not asking no more on slime”
However, when the video was not taken down as requested, Young Thug posted a video telling Plies he has till the end of the day to do so. The following is the transcript, according to Vibe.
“Man listen, I want everybody in the world to @ this f**k n***a Plies and tell this p***y a** n***a if he don’t take this motherf**kin’ video down of my daughter off his motherf**in’ page, calling her out her name, it’s gonna be problems. If he down get it down today, on everything I love it’s problems. I’m with whatever you wanna be with, p**y a** f**k n***a.”
Plies is said to have responded with a video of his own, saying he didn’t know the girl was, in fact, Young Thug’s daughter. This is according to Hot New Hip Hop. However, he soon took this video down, leaving the one of Young Thug’s daughter. Young Thug has since deleted the video threatening Plies from his account.
