The ongoing legal issues for Young Thug continue to get worse, as he has just been hit with a brand new indictment with a host of additional charges. According to reports, Young Thug now faces a new gang charge, drug charge, a charge of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and a charge of possession of a machine gun.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis believes that these latest charges add to the prosecution’s claim that Young Thug acted as a leader of a criminal street gang YSL for several years. Additionally, Willis’ office confirmed that the new indictment not only includes Young Thug, but also all 28 defendants from the initial indictment back in May. “YSL is an acronym for ‘Young Slime Life’. It is a hybrid gang that operates here in Atlanta and it’s an affiliate of the Bloods gang,” Willis said.

Representatives from the Fulton County DA’s office explained that the multiple new charges, that includes Thug as well as the four other defendants, come from the evidence that the DA’s office and Atlanta police found in Thug’s home in Buckhead the day of his May arrest.
As we previously reported back in June, Young Thug was officially denied bond and will remain in custody of the Cobb County Jail along with fellow YSL member Gunna. Both will stand trial for their RICO case that is set for January 2023.
When the prosecutors came up to speak about why Young Thug should not receive bond, they noted his endless amounts of song lyrics, in which he allegedly details all of the crimes that he and YSL have committed.
As they ended their statements at his bond hearing this evening, they called Young Thug “King Slime” and singled him out as the “most dangerous” member of YSL and the person calling all the shots, as it relates to murder and other gang-related activity.
