With fellow rapper Gunna, who goes by the name Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, Young Thug was one of 28 defendants included in the indictment. Young Thug was born Jeffery Lamar Williams and raised in the Bronx, New York. A conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act has been filed against both of these individuals (RICO).

    Young Thug was taken into custody at his residence in Buckhead, an Atlanta neighborhood just north of downtown, and is currently being held at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta. It was not immediately clear whether Gunna had been taken into custody.

  According to the defendants’ detention records, the conspiracy accusation against them was filed in 2013 and the gang charge against them was filed in 2018.

Atlanta-based Young Thug is alleged to be one of three founding members of the Young Slime Life, “a violent street gang that began operations in late 2012.” According to authorities, YSL is associated with the national Bloods gang. “Preserving, safeguarding, and promoting the reputation, power, and territory of the organization by acts of racketeering activity, including murder, assault, and threats of violence,” according to the indictment, is one of the charges.

Attorney Brian Steel defended his client’s status as a lawbreaker, telling in a statement that “Mr. Williams has committed no breach of the law at all.” We want to litigate this lawsuit with integrity, legal rigor, and zeal. It is expected that Mr. Williams will be exonerated.”

The rapper is scheduled to appear in court for the first time on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m.

Several representatives from Gunna and the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office have been contacted by USA TODAY for comment and additional information.

This isn’t the first time Young Thug has been involved in a legal situation.

In 2018, the rapper was detained at his own birthday party, which also served as a listening event for his compilation album “Slime Language,” after the Los Angeles Police Department discovered a handgun in his vehicle, according to the Los Angeles Times. According to LAPD booking paperwork, the rapper was taken into custody just before midnight and kept until the early hours of the morning with bail set at $35,000 and held until the early hours of the morning.

Young Thug was previously arrested in September 2017 on allegations of possessing a firearm and trafficking in controlled substances following a traffic stop near Atlanta.
