Today in Hip Hop News, Young Thug took a huge win after a court determined that smartphones and evidence confiscated from his house in 2015 could not be used as evidence in the current RICO case. He also declared the search to be unlawful.
The "Lifestyle" rapper seemed to win shortly after Gunna's release from prison.
The rapper of "Relationship" was charged with eight charges, including street racing, dangerous driving, speeding, and other offenses. On December 13, the Atlanta native was charged with three crimes.
The YSL crew consisted of about 28 defendants facing up to 65 counts of RICO charges.
The jury selection for the trial is set to begin on January 5, 2023, with the trial of Young Thug and the YSL gang beginning on January 9, 2023.
Young Thug appeared in court less than 24 hours after Atlanta rapper Gunna was freed from the Fulton County Jail on December 14 after accepting a plea agreement in the RICO case, which included gang participation.
Young Thug, the Atlanta and YSL (Young Stoner Life) rapper, appeared in court yesterday (December 16, 2022) for a new court hearing on his RICO accusation.
Thugger, real name Jeffrey Williams, and other YSL members came for the hearing on Thursday morning, less than 24 hours after another YSL member Gunna was released after accepting a plea deal, according to 11Alive News in Atlanta.
The "Surf" rapper was charged with eight charges. Last May, other members of the YSL team were also charged. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis attempted to utilize his rap lyrics as evidence in court.
Young Thug's bond has also been declined three times.
