Atlanta rapper Young Thug is the latest rapper to be hit with charges for his alleged gang ties to the national Bloods street gang.
Prosecutors say Jeffery Williams /pka/ Young Thug, who is allegedly the leader of the gang YSL or Young Slime Life, rapped about his criminal activities in his music under his YSL record label. According to the Atlanta DA’s office, his music lyrics should be admissible in court and used against him for prosecution.
Although Young Thug has claimed gang ties in his lyrics, defense attorney Manny Arora is arguing there is no evidence that rapper has any gang affiliation.
So far four of Thug’s co-defendants have been sentenced to life in prison for their crimes committed while affiliated with the gang. Others have taken plea deals leaving Young Thug on the hook to stand trial under the Rico charge.

Everyone knows I am addicted to cult & mob documentaries.
“Keep Sweet: Pray & Obey” documents the stories of survivors of the FDLS Fundamentalist Cult and victims of the polygamist leader of the “church” Warren Jeffs.
It’s an interesting cringe documentary that exposes the victimization of the survivors of the unorthodox religion in which plural marriage is considered a VIP pass to heaven.
In this four-part series available on Netflix, the survivors share their feelings of the “church” after leaving the fundamentalist lifestyle in which the men take up as many as 30-40 wives or more, including child brides and family members.
Leader of the cult, Warren Jeffs was arrested in 2011 and is currently imprisoned at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s Louis C. Powledge Unit, near Palestine, Texas on felony charges of sexual conduct with minors, as well as two counts of rape from the previous years. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years for sexually assaulting two girls though his victim count is more than likely significantly higher.
According to the TDCJ, Jeffs’ earliest parole eligibility date is July 22, 2038.
Season 2 of “Trafficked” with host Mariana van Zeller is set to premiere December 1.
In the series, the award winning journalist explores the inner workings of the global underworld’s most dangerous black markets.
In each episode, she journeys inside a different black market or trafficking network — from drugs and stolen cars to outlaw bikers and Amazon mafias — to meet the players, learn the business, and better understand the world’s multitrillion-dollar shadow economy.
The show premieres on National Geographic channel. Thankfully they sent me this tweet as a reminder to set my DVR.
