Jack Harlow has risen to prominence in the hip-hop industry over the last few years. However, a reporter recently confusingly asked why Jack Harlow was not named in the YSL indictment alongside Young Thug and Gunna. That faux pas of a question is creating waves on the internet.
A reporter inquired why Jack Harlow was not named in the 56-count indictment against Young Thug, Gunna, and the YSL gang during Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ press conference. It’s unknown why the reporter assumed Harlow would be arrested in connection with the case. Of course, Harlow is not connected to this RICO case at all.
“The indictment’s got Young Thug and a bunch of other rappers. But there’s one name I was expecting to see, and I didn’t, and that’s Jack Harlow. Can you speak to that?”
DA Willis responded to say, “What I’ll tell you is that as large as this indictment is, I told my team, let’s not be sexy, let’s not overreach, let’s be conservative in our approach, which is always the approach that I take, and in taking that approach 28 defendants were indicted.”
Thug is accused of conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and participation in criminal street gang activities. Gunna is charged with one count of conspiring to violate RICO. He will try like crazy to get off of that charge as he has already made it clear that he is just signed to the label as an artist. Willis later confirmed during the news conference that the prosecution intends to seek life sentences for “many” of those charged.
Between 2012 and 2020, 28 people were charged with murder, aggravated assault, firearms offenses, theft, drug possession, street gang activities, armed robbery, and carjacking, in addition to Thugger and Gunna. Keep an eye on Thirsty to get more updates.
