Young Thug Wants To Redact Video Threatening Lil Wayne From Evidence: Report
Young Thug and his co-defendants are fighting tooth and nail to prove their innocence in the YSL RICO case. Even though they haven't moved past jury selection, prosecutors are doing whatever they can to ensure that the Atlanta rapper remains locked up for the rest of his days. Still, his team of attorneys is working diligently to prove his innocence. Recently, Thug filed a motion in an attempt to redact 2015 footage where he allegedly threatened Lil Wayne from evidence. Per AllHipHop, prosecutors believe this would be critical in proving YSL is a street gang, especially since a conviction was secured.
Thug and Birdman were both indicted for the shooting but neither were charged. Instead, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, better known as Peewee Roscoe, was sentenced to prison after a jury convicted him of shooting at Lil Wayne's tour bus. While the beef between Weezy and Thug seems to be water under the bridge, prosecutors stated that this piece of evidence can secure their case.
Young Thug Seeks Information On Informant
In addition to the 2015 video surrounding Lil Wayne, Young Thug also wants information on an informant identified as "K.C." The alleged informant reportedly began working with authorities around the same time that the video about Lil Wayne surfaced. Thug's attorneys believe that the information surrounding K.C. is imperative for their case. Though there's yet to be a ruling, it's clear that Thugger's defense is working overtime to combat the prosecutor's arguments.
K.C. was identified as the alleged culprit in a drive-by shooting that took place at T.I.G. Studios on Jan. 8th, 2015. Through the State's discovery process, law enforcement were able to obtain the paperwork that identified K.C. as the shooter. Prosecutors have yet to prove any substantial evidence, including 911 calls, videos, or reports, related to the studio shooting. The reason why this information is important is because T.I.G. was a go-to studio for YFN Lucci. District Attorney Fani Willis has made it clear that the YSL/YFN feud turned Atlanta into a deadly city, accounting for 50 murders and shooting.
