An appropriately named rapper


The Atlanta-based rapper Young Thug was one of nearly 30 people indicted Monday in Georgia on conspiracy to violate the state’s RICO act and charges stemming from street gang activity.

Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Lamar Williams, was arrested at his home in Buckhead, a suburb just north of Atlanta, Georgia. The Associated Press reported that he is currently being held at the Fulton County Jail.

The charges of conspiracy date back to 2013, and the gang-related charges date back to 2018, according to jail records.

According to the indictment, Young Thug is allegedly one of three founders of the organization called Young Slime Life, “a criminal street gang that started in 2012” in Atlanta. Young Slime Life is affiliated with the national Bloods gang.
