Young Thug Gets Preliminary Hearing, Prosecutors Bring Up "Conflict Of Interest" Issue: Report
As Gunna received news about his case today (May 23), Young Thug gets an update, as well. The two rappers have remained incarcerated in Atlanta as the RICO case against them continues to mount. Thugger and Gunna have been accused of being a part of a criminal enterprise with YSL, but their attorneys have maintained that the chart-topping rappers have not engaged in gang activity.
Meanwhile, 28 people have reportedly been named in an extensive indictment against YSL and its alleged associates as prosecutors claim that members have been a part of murders, robberies, and other illegal activities including Lil Wayne's 2015 bus shooting and the stabbing of YFL Lucci.
