Fulton County DA Says She Had to Beef Up Security Since Indicting YSL Members in RICO Case

The RICO case against YSL members Young Thug & Gunna is front page news here in Atlanta. There are a lot of opposing feelings about the case and whether the DA should be allowed to use their rap lyrics in court to convict them. Young Thug was labeled the gang leader of YSL and hit with 56 charges from everything to murder conspiracy to anything else they could pin on him. Most of us know YSL as a record label with legit music & artists.

Personally I don’t think rap lyrics are an admission of a crime. That being said this will probably be the new wave with federal prosecutors seeking convictions because of the violent lyrics & imagery that are associated with Hip Hop culture.

Record Executive Kevin Liles, co-founder and CEO of 300 Entertainment went to bat for Young Thug by testifying in his bond hearing. At one point, Liles got emotional and reflected on how the Young Stoner Life label, that he partnered with Young Thug to build, has changed the lives of many people, including his. Liles offered to put up his own money to insure Thug’s bond but the judge declined.

Kevin Liles has since launched a petition on Change.org to “Rap Music on Trial: Protect Black Art” opposing the use of rap lyrics to convict artists.

Legendary Rapper Pimp C’s Wife Tells Young Thug To “Watch His Mouth” After Pimp C Reference In New Song

I will admit that I rarely listen to rap music anymore, mostly because I can’t get with this new wave of rappers either promoting satanism, talking on “money phones” or flat out wearing dresses. Hell, call me old. The rap game is a shell of its former self and that makes me sad. Especially since I was born and raised (and worked) in the music industry a many a years.

I truly loved and respected the grind of the artists I was fortunate to be able to work with, so rap holds dear to my heart.

At any rate, this post ain’t about me. Pimp C and Bun B, better known as the rap legends UGK have certainly earned their OG stripes, both in the streets and in the music industry and those of us who grew up to their music do not take too kindly to them being mocked or disrespected — especially by these new “rappers.”

Pimp C’s wife caught wind of a new song by mumble rapper Young Thug in which he made some kind of reference to Pimp C. Chinara, aka Mrs. Chad Butler, aka the self proclaimed “Trill Queen” immediately took to social media to kindly ask Young Thug to “stay in his lane” and “watch his mouth” when it comes to speaking on the Port Arthur legend. Since Pimp C is not here to respond to any rap game shenanigans, Chinara made it clear respect was in order.

Pimp C died in December of 2007 from complications to promethazine/codeine (lean) in conjunction with sleep apnea.

Honestly, I can never understand anything Young Thug mumbles says in his raps so chances are if I did hear the song, I wouldn’t have known what he was saying anyway. But I digress.

Check out the video below:

“My thing is if Chad was alive you wouldn’t mention his name the way you did, so don’t do it now. Watch your mouth. He’s not here to have that conversation with you, but I am […] keep that s**t to your motherf**king self.”

And there you have it.

Do you think that Young Thug will respond to Mrs Butler? I doubt it. She looks like she don’t play!
