Young Thug and his YSL syndicate were arrested early on Monday afternoon. Thug has been accused of several charges relating to organized crime. The gang was charged with illegally obtaining money and property through racketeering activity and participating in a criminal enterprise. Now, the case has another interesting twist.

Lil Wayne’s tour bus was shot up in 2015 by YSL associate Jimmy Winfrey, known in the rap world as PeeWee Roscoe. That shooting has now been connected to the arrest of Young Thug and the rest of YSL. Winfrey was named in the indictment of Young Thug.

According to Michael Seiden of WSB TV, the Lil Wayne bus shooting incident was specifically mentioned in the indictment. This means that the feds have been watching YSL for years.

NEW INFO: Suspected YSL associate charged w/ shooting up Lil Wayne’s tour bus while the hip-hop superstar was performing in Atlanta in 2015. Jimmy Winfrey is charged with aggravated assault w/ a deadly weapon , according to indictment.


If a connection between the Young Thug RICO arrest and the Lil Wayne bus shooting can be made, things should begin to come to light. YSL’s criminal enterprise may be even broader than originally thought. We will have to keep watching the case to see what other bombshells come next.
