Young Thug remains in jail after his court appearance yesterday (May 10th). As previously reported, an 88-page indictment names Young Thug, Gunna, along with 28 people, alleging they participated in street gang activity while being part of the Young Slime gang, also known as YSL. The indictment included charges of conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, murder, armed robbery, participation in criminal street gang activity.
According to 11 Alive, during Young Thug's appearance, Thug was told of the charges that were bought against him. He was also told that his attorney could request bond on his behalf once the next court hearing is scheduled. The rapper's attorney released a statement, denying Thugger's involvement in any criminal activity.
Meanwhile, lyrics from Young Thug's hit “Ski” is being used as evidence. Prosecutors called the song's text “an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy.”
According to @wsbtv, two of the YSL associates worked to get permission from Thug to make a second attempt to murder YFN Lucci, while he’s in the Fulton County Jail. Back in February, Lucci claimed someone stabbed him back in February. TMZ reported that the rapper was on a video call when he says someone used a homemade shank to stab him. It is being reported that Thug and YSL members that are incarcerated are being “separated and monitored” closely since there are a number of rival gang members in close proximity to one another.
