After a photo of Young Thug flexing behind bars appeared online, another image of the rapper surfaced. Thugger has been at legal war with prosecutors claiming he is a street gang leader. He was arrested last May in connection to the RICO case against YSL, as authorities claim the record label is a criminal organization. Thug's supporters have insisted he is a respectable figure who has helped other creatives succeed. However, he faced several charges connected to drugs, weapons, and racketeering.
The jury selection process has been daunting. It has continued for months; according to reports, there isn't an end in sight for some time. It could be the summer, if not even later this year, before the trial begins. Several of Young Thug's alleged associates have already taken plea deals, including Gunna. He was the first to cop to an Alford plea, and in court, he made admissions that had many labeling him as a snitch.
Young Thug's Sister Gave An Update
According to Thug's sister Dolly White, the Trap artist is doing well, all things considered. She also said he told her he would be home soon, although there are some who aren't so enthusiastic. Additionally, there have been several conversations about Thug's relationship with Gunna. The latter has kept a low profile since leaving jail in December, and his peers speculated about Gunna's next move.
Some theorize that to move forward with his Rap career, Young Thug must speak up on behalf of Gunna. Recently, DJ Akademiks hopped on Twitch to speculate about the "Pushin P" rapper's future. He claimed Gunna already had an album ready for release but is questioning whether he should stay with YSL or move to another label. The validity of those rumors is questionable, but the gossip spread like wildfire.
Metro Boomin Talked To Thugger
Days ago, Metro Boomin revealed he's spoken with Young Thug while on DJ Drama's The Streetz Iz Watching podcast. "I be talking to him, he's blessed man," Metro said. "Anybody know Slime know he got a heart of gold, but he got the heart of a warrior at the same time. So, like, he got his head up. And I pray for him every single day, even since everything first happened. I pray for him every single day."
