Jeffery “Young Thug” Williams and Sergio “Gunna” Kitchens have landed in legal hot water. The Atlanta-Journal Constitution has reported that Young Thug and Gunna have been charged with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and participation in street gang activity.
Kitchens and Williams’ charges reportedly stem from their involvement with the popular record label, YSL. According to court documents obtained by Michael Seiden of WSBTV, prosecutors argue that the record imprint is a front for a “criminal street” operation.
“YSL is a criminal street gang that started in late 2012 in the Cleveland Avenue area of ATL. YSL claims affiliation with the national Bloods gang,” the court document states, according to Seiden.
Early analysis of the court documents filed by prosecutors accuse Gunna of “appearing in a video released on social media titled ‘Fox 5,’ wearing a YSL pendant and a ‘Slatt’ pendant, with lyrics stating, ‘We got ten-hundred round choppers’.”
As for Williams, he has been accused of renting a vehicle from Hertz that was allegedly used in the murder of Donovan Thomas Jr. Additionally, the indictment alleges that two YSL associates attempted to get Young Thug to sign off on the attempted murder of YFN Lucci.
Gunna and Young Thug are two of 28 men who have reportedly been arrested in connection to the alleged string of crimes. The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office has not issued a statement regarding the matter as of yet.
