Young Thug Wanted on Felony Arrest Warrant in Georgia
Young Thug may be looking at some time behind bars if law enforcement have their way.
Last week news broke the rapper has been charged with eight felonies after being arrested in Sept. 2017. Thug was reportedly pulled over for having tinted windows when police found him in possession of several drugs and a gun, though he was initially arrested for marijuana. Georgia's DeKalb County has since issued a grand jury warrant for his arrest.
The Atlanta musician's charges include possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed, as well as possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam (Xanax), a firearm and two counts of codeine. Young Thug hasn't publicly responded to the warrant, though he did tweet "Fuck 12 4life" over the weekend. He's due in court for his arraignment on Oct. 9.
Unfortunately Thug's legal woes don't stop there. He caught another felony gun charge during his Slime Language listening party in Los Angeles on the evening of Aug. 16. At the time, the "Gain Clout" rapper was arrested for being in possession of a concealed firearm in a vehicle. The compilation album featuring Gunna, Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Baby debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 after its release on Aug. 17.
Thugger's aptly-titled LP, On the Run, is slated to drop tomorrow (Sept. 11). Yesterday (Sept. 9), the hitmaker simply tweeted "Album in 2 days," with additional confirmation from the YSL imprint. Stay tuned for more info.
