Rapper Young Thug is accused of doing a DRUG DEAL in court

47

He faces 20 years in prison on for being part of street gang Young Slime Life

Grammy-winning rapper Young Thug and a racketeering co-defendant conducted a hand-to-hand drug transaction during a court hearing, prosecutors said in a motion filed in Atlanta.

He won a Grammy Award in 2019 for his work with Childish Gambino and Ludwig Gransson on the hit song ‘This is America.’

Prosecutors claim the two exchanged a Percocet pill in a motion filed to Fulton County Court, Atlanta, on Thursday.

The rapper, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, and Kahlieff Adams are charged with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and participation in criminal street gang activity, among other charges.

Jeffrey Lamar Williams, is facing 62 charges relating to his participation in the criminal street gang Young Slime Life. If convicted the grammy award winner will be jailed for up to 20 years.

According to the motion seeking clarification of the record, Adams ‘stood up from his chair (…) and walked unattended’ to Young Thug and gave him Percocet.

The motion said Young Thug tried to conceal his hand under the table. Sheriff’s deputies took the painkiller and searched Adams, who resisted.

He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital after ‘he appeared to ingest other items of contraband that he held on his person, in an effort to conceal the extent of his crimes within the courtroom.’

Young Thug, who is accused of being the ‘general’ in criminal street gang Young Slime Life (YSL), faces six additional felonies related to possession of illegal substances and illegal firearms linked to the case. The initial indictment contained 56 counts against 28 people, including rapper Gunna for their alleged involvement in nearly 200 crimes. Pictured: Young Thug and Gunna in 2019

During the search of Adams, the deputies found Percocet, marijuana, tobacco, and other contraband, ‘wrapped in plastic and food seasonings to mask the odor of the marijuana,’ the motion said.

Percocet is the brand name of a drug that mixes oxycodone, which is an opioid, and acetaminophen, which is the generic name for drugs such as Tylenol.

The rapper was initially indicted in May on charges of conspiracy to violate the RICO Act and participation in criminal street gang activity.

A re-indictment filed on August 5 in Fulton County Superior Court accuses him of nine new charges, including participating in criminal street gang activity and violating the Georgia Controlled Substances Act.

He also was indicted on other charges of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a machine gun.

Jury selection is ongoing.

Teombre Calland, an attorney representing Adams, released a statement via text message to WSB-TV saying: ‘On behalf of Mr. Adams, these allegations are simply that: mere statements made by the state in an effort to thwart the lengthiness of the jury selection process.’

Rapper is facing up to 20 years in prison for his involvement in Young Slime Life.
