The explosive news about the arrests of Young Thug, Gunna, and 26 of their alleged associates has shocked hip-hop. Thugger and Gunna have been named in a 56-count indictment that alleges the two chart-topping rappers were involved in gang activity. However, Thug’s attorney believes otherwise.
The reported racketeering case seems to have been developing for some time as the authorities have accused Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Williams, rented a vehicle that was later used in a murder of an alleged rival gang member. The alleged crimes reportedly occurred between 2013 to 2022.
Gunna’s involvement is reportedly less serious, although authorities have noted that the rapper has worn pendants, chains, and rapped lyrics about his affiliation with YSL—Young Stoner Life or Young Slime Life. Meanwhile, Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel, said in a statement to HNHH, “I’ll tell you the response to any allegation; Mr. Williams committed no crime whatsoever and we will fight to my last drop of blood to clear him.”
As far as Gunna is concerned, his lawyer has yet to come forward. However, there have been professionals dissecting the case online. A major mention is the allegations that two YSL associates went to Thug to gain permission for a second murder attempt on YFN Lucci, someone Thugger had beef with in the past.
Thug is reportedly scheduled to make his first court appearance tomorrow morning at 11:30 a.m. This is a developing story and we will be on the lookout for more updates. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
