Young Thug has been making headlines lately for mostly the wrong reasons. One of the most recent controversies to befall the rapper includes his recent run-in with the authorities after threatening to shoot a security guy at the mall. Young Thug was taken in by U.S Marshalls on July 15, and the following day, drugs and guns were found at his home following a raid by the police.
According to WSB TV, this consequently led to more charges, which include felony drug possession and three counts of gun possession. The following was the statement issued by Jim Joyner, spokesperson for the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force about his arrest.
“Williams was wanted on an outstanding warrant charging him with terroristic threats stemming from an incident that occurred with the jurisdiction of the Dunwoody police.”
However, these charges are dwarfed by the indictment Young Thug faces for reportedly participating in a plot to assassinate Lil Wayne. The indictment alleges that Bryan Williams aka Birdman and Thug had hatched a plot to kill the artist following a music contract dispute between Birdman and Lil Wayne, which saw Weezy file a $51 million lawsuit against the Cash Money music label, which is owned by Birdman earlier this year.
The assassination plot revelation comes after Lil Wayne’s tour bus was shot at while leaving an event about a month ago. The shooting suspect, Jimmy Winfrey, is said to have linked both Birdman and Young Thug to the incident.
Currently incarcerated, he is said to be the person driving the Chevy Camaro that was used in the shooting. This is how it happened, as reported by WSB TV.
“After Atlanta Police discontinued their escort, (Winfrey) and fellow Blood Gang members entered Interstate 285 from Atlanta Road in Cobb County in pursuit of the buses occupied by (Lil Wayne’s) group… (That’s when) the white sports car pulled beside the buses, shots were then fired into the buses from the sports car with a .40 caliber handgun and a 9mm handgun.”
In other stories, Young Thug’s girlfriend, Jerrika Karlae, yesterday made a declaration that she is now single, aaccording to Vlad TV. Says she posted an image of Thug’s legs on Instagram with the following caption.
“So sad that you can be loyal to a person, you can give them your all, defend them, understand them, love them, etc., and they can’t give it back in return. Some people are so broken that they are unable to be loved. #SINGLE.”
