Young Thug - RICO

Jeffery Lamar Williams, Young Thug, was busted on gang-related charges on May 9 after being named in a sweeping 56-count grand jury indictment in Fulton County, Georgia. He is among 28 people associated with the Atlanta-based Young Slime Life (YSL) gang, which he co-founded in 2012. His indictment spotlights controversial use of rap lyrics as evidence.
Young Thug was first charged with two counts, conspiring to violate the state’s RICO act and participating in street gang activity.
Williams was hit with drugs and weapons charges after cops searched his home following his arrest. Other rappers from the label were also indicted, including 'Gunna' Sergio Kitchens.
"YSL is an acronym for ‘Young Slime Life’ and it’s a hybrid gang that operates here in Atlanta and it’s an affiliate of the Bloods gang."
