There been talks of the Hip Hop Police and that the authorities are working directly to look up any minority or any sort of African-American who gains certain popularity and whatnot. That has been the talk of the town. The authorities are now trying to make an example of the gang-affiliated musicians, rappers or MCs, which are there.
One of them is Jeffrey Williams aka Slime aka Young Thug. Has certainly lived the life-style he has written about and the stories he has to into his music. That can be said with certainty now. The DA of Fulton County hopefully has more than Instagram pictures and Song Lyrics. Though these are social media messaging and an artists expression. However, when you see that in consideration to the criminal activity and part of a street gang. There will certainly be more and the DA should be bulletproof in the sense of co-ordination of evidence that collaborate with the charges and the indictment.
I am just dropping a few pieces of the 88 pages indictment of the YSL Street Gang, but just reading these alone. It is compelling to see and say that Young Thug will not record or be free in a very long time.
Here is what it says, which I see as vital for the indictment and charges:
“YSL is a criminal street gang that started in late 2012 in the Cleveland Avenue area of
Atlanta, Georgia. YSL claims affiliation with the national Bloods gang. YSL’s founders were Jeffery Williams AKA “Young Thug,” AKA “Slime,” Walter Murphy AKA “DK,” and Trontavious Stephens AKA “Tick,” AKA “Slug.” Jeffery Williams, an Atlanta-based hip-hop artist, made YSL a well-known name by referring to it in his songs and on social media” (Fulton County – ‘Indictment Clerk No. 225C/82273’ 09.05.2022).
“As associates of the enterprise Young Slime Life (hereinafter “YSL”), the defendants conspired to associate together and with others for the common purposes of illegally obtaining money and property through a pattern of racketeering activity and conducting and participating in the enterprise through a pattern of racketeering activity. In furtherance of the conspiracy, the defendants engaged in the activities enumerated herein” (Fulton County – ‘Indictment Clerk No. 225C/82273’ 09.05.2022).
“Defendant JEFFERY WILLIAMS, an associate of YSL, did appear in an video released on social media 16 days after the murder of Donovan Thomas Jr., stating “so a nigga lie to they momma, lie to they kids, lie to they brothers and sisters then get right into the courtroom and tell the God’s honest truth, don’t get it, y’all niggas need to get fucking killed bro, from me and YSL,” an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy” (Fulton County – ‘Indictment Clerk No. 225C/82273’ 09.05.2022).
This here will be detrimental to the career of Young Thug. However, there are plenty of victims of his gang and their activity. So, there will be people who has lost their family members and been victimized by the street gang. Therefore, Young Thug will most likely be long behind bars. He and the others will face long stints too. Especially, if the DA has the evidence and can connect it all.
That’s why the rapper and musician, Young Thug should be worried and so should anyone who wants to hear new music from him. This case and pending trial can finalize that.
The YSL RICO case could be end of his career, just like YSL has ended other peoples lives and now it comes back to haunt him. That’s what the justice system does to you and this sort of violence, racketeering and murders has to be held to account. Young Thug made it seem like he could get away with it all.
But now… the authorities got him and the Thug Life is costly for everyone. Not only the artist himself, but everyone surrounding him. It is especially tragic that he didn’t just talk about it over instrumentals, but lived it too.
Now that’s what you calling “keeping it real goes wrong”. Peace.
