Whoa! I knew the demand for his music was at an all-time high nationally (not just in Atlanta, which is constant), but this is great news for him, his crew, and the many clones out there. Could any of the other ATL heavy hitters ever deliver numbers like this outside of the mixtape world? Be HONEST!!! leave me some comments on who you think could do these numbers out of Atlanta these days, I want to know
Cops are dropping the hammer on Young Thug … he’s reportedly been slapped with drugs and weapons violations after a raid at his home.
Police executed a search warrant on Wednesday at the mansion in Sandy Springs, outside Atlanta. TMZ has learned cops issued the following arrest warrants after the search:
– felony cocaine possession
– felony marijuana possession
– 3 counts felony gun possession
Thugger and Birdman have also been tied to the alleged Lil Wayne tour bus shooter.
YT was already in police custody. As we told you … U.S. Marshals arrested him Wednesday for terroristic threats involving a mall security officer.
The explosive allegation comes in the indictment for Jimmy Carlton Winfrey — the guy busted for firing at Wayne’s bus back in April. According to the docs, moments after Winfrey shot up the bus in Atlanta … he called a phone owned by Birdman.
Adding further suspicion — after that call, Winfrey drove to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel … where Wayne’s entourage stopped after the shooting. Cops don’t say it in the indictment, but the insinuation is Winfrey was told to go finish the job … but as we reported, police had met Wayne’s entourage at the hotel to investigate the shooting.
TMZ broke the story … Winfrey has been Young Thug’s tour manager. Cops also point out that Winfrey is seen brandishing an assault rifle in Thug’s “Halftime” music video … which includes lyrics threatening to shoot Wayne in the head.
Birdman and Thug have not been charged with any crime — but the indictment makes it clear cops think they’re closely tied to the shooter.
From the OG Muzik project currently making noise on the indy circuit. This was my pick off the tape, so Im glad this is the first offering. Conrade Black gives us some serious bars on this one, firing major shots! The ignorance taking place in hip hop has met its newest foe.
