The Atlanta Journal-Constitution revealed in May of last year that Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, was arrested on gang-related charges.
Those charges stemmed from Williams' involvement with Young Slime Life, a record label that he helped to found. Prosecutors contend that the company is a front for criminal activity.
What's more, The Hollywood Reporter stated that a subsequent raid on Williams' home led to seven additional drug and weapons charges.
