Young Thug is facing an additional seven felony charges after authorities found guns and drugs during a raid of his Buckhead, Atlanta home.
Consequence reports– that the Fulton County jail records state that the 30-year-old rapper has been hit with charges of Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute; Possession of a Schedule III, Iv or V Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute; Possession of Firearm During Commission of a Felony; and Possession of Sawed-Off Shotgun, Sawed-Off Rifle, Machine Gun, dangerous Weapon, or Silencer, alongside separate counts of Unlawful for Person Employed By/Associated with Criminal Street Gang to Conduct/Participate in Criminal Activity.
He was arrested earlier this week on charges of “conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and participation in street gang activity,” and is named in a 56-count indictment alongside Gunna, who has already turned himself in, and 26 other Young Stoner Life (YSL) Records associates.
The 88-page indictment saw prosecutors label YSL as “a criminal street gang that started in late 2012 in the Cleveland Avenue area of ATL” and supposedly “claims affiliation with the national Bloods gang,” while Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis stated in her public address that “many people” involved are looking at a life sentence.
