Young Thug is currently in jail after being arrested on Monday (May 9) on Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) charges. Gunna was later arrested as well along with other members of the YSL crew.
Thug has now been charged with seven additional felonies, according to online records released by the Police. The charges come after police raided the rapper’s home in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood.
The new charges against the YSL leader are: possession of marijuana with intent to distribute; possession of a Schedule III, IV, or V controlled substance with intent to distribute; possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony; possession of a sawed-off shotgun, sawed-off rifle, machine gun, dangerous weapon, or silencer; and three counts of being a person employed or associated with a criminal street gang to conduct or participate in criminal gang activity through the commission of a crime.

In an interview with WSBTV, Young Thug’s father Jeffery Williams Sr. denied the charges against his son. “I think my son has been unfairly linked to a lot of things, but it’s up to us to prove it,” he said. “I’ma fight for him until the end, I’m his father.”
