The YSL RICO Case Unveiled

The YSL RICO case has been of great interest since its inception. Young Thug and fellow Atlanta rapper Gunna was indicted on RICO charges in May 2022, sending shockwaves through the music industry. The case has brought to light allegations of organized crime activities within the YSL rap label, raising questions about the involvement of its members. 

Gunna’s acceptance of a plea deal and subsequent release from jail in December 2022 further complicated the situation.

YSL Under Scrutiny

One of the most recent developments in the YSL RICO case involved Young Thug and Yak Gotti being denied bond. Additionally, the prosecution eliminated two potential jurors during the jury selection process because of their bias and prejudice against the defendants.
