Young Thug remains behind bars as he awaits the YSL RICO trial to begin. The rapper was arrested last May along with 27 other associates, including Gunna, who has since been released after taking an Alford Plea. In the past two months, jury selection has been underway and the process has been from furthest thing to smooth. Many have been excused after sharing their hardships with the judge. By the time February rolled around, the jury selection process appeared to be stagnant and they expected it to take several months.
Jury selection aside, many of the co-defendants have found themselves in hot water. There was that infamous moment where a co-defendant tried to hand Young Thug a pill that he immediately handed over to the bailiff. However, the leak of YSL Woody's interrogation video became the biggest controversy to emerge thus far. Though a judge rejected a motion for a mistrial, the incident is being further investigated. Meanwhile, the prosecutors have expressed fear that their potential star witness might be in danger.
Young Thug Shows Gains
Since his arrest, we haven't heard many updates from Young Thug but his family members and friends passed along messages on his behalf. A few months ago, she assured fans that the rapper was in good spirits during this trying time. However, over the weekend, she blessed fans with a new picture of Thug via video call. The rapper has clearly been working out heavily these days. Dolly White shared a photo of Thug flexing his gains, writing, "My Heart."
Prior to Dolly White's update, Metro Boomin revealed that he also got the opportunity to chop it up with Thug. He also expressed optimism that Thug would be back sooner rather than later. "Talked to [spider emoji] today and just know when he touchdown the whole [earth emoji] gon feel it [bicep flex emoji]," he wrote. Metro was one of the few artists to release music with Thug since his arrest. Thugger appeared on Heroes & Villains singles, "Trance" alongside Travis Scott and "Metro Spider." Perhaps, Metro might unload some more unreleased Thug sometime soon. Check out Dolly White's post above.
