Young Thug was arrested on gang activity and racketeering charges on Monday.
According to WSBTV reporter Michael Seiden, Young Thug was charged with participation in street gang activity and conspiracy to violate the RICO Act as part of a 56-count indictment filed against the rapper and his associates.
YSL (short for Young Slime Life) is the name of Young Thug’s record label. However, in its indictment the Fulton County District Attorney alleges that the Atlanta-based YSL also engages in criminal gang activities, including murder and armed robbery.
As the co-founder of YSL, Young Thug is specifically accused of renting an Infiniti Q50 sedan, which was used in the 2015 murder of a rival gang murder named Donovan Thomas, Jr. Prosecutors also say Young Thug arranged a hit on rapper YSN Lucci while he was jailed in Fulton County.
As part of the indictment, Young Thug’s frequent collaborator, Gunna, is also facing racketeering charges.
