(Video) Young Thug Remains Jailed After First Court Appearance (Update)
As RICO charges were brought against Young Thug yesterday, he made his first court appearance at magistrate court and remains in jail.
According to 11Alive, he was told of the charges that were brought against him. The 30-year-old was also told his attorney could request a bond on his behalf once the next court hearing is scheduled.
As previously reported, the 88-page indictment names Young Thug and associate rapper Gunna, along with 26 individuals, alleging they participated in street gang activity while being part of Young Slime Life, a street gang known as YSL.
Lyrics from Young Thug’s hit single, ‘Ski,’ are being used as evidence. Prosecutors called the song’s text “an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy.”
According to @wsbtv, two of the ‘Young Slime Life’ associates worked to get permission from Young Thug to make a second attempt to murder Lucci, while he’s in the Fulton County Jail.
If you recall, Lucci stated someone stabbed him back in February. According to TMZ, Lucci was on a video call when he says someone used a homemade shank to stab him.
The indictment includes charges of conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, murder, armed robbery, participation in criminal street gang activity.
