The video of a 2021 interview that was posted online about two weeks ago shows a witness offering to provide information in the investigation into Young Thug in exchange for leniency, the newspaper reported.
Grammy award-winning rapper Young Thug appeared in a Fulton County courtroom for a scheduled pre-trial motions hearing Thursday morning, but the judge was forced to delay the hearing because of technical difficulties.
According to the New York Times, citing numerous threats to kill or harm witnesses, prosecutors in the case against the YSL group and Atlanta-based rap star and alleged leader Young Thug, have confirmed a requirement that forces defense lawyers to withhold all contact information from their clients.
Rap lyrics are being used as evidence in a major gang bust allegedly involving two Atlanta rappers. But the Fulton County District Attorney's office faces criticism for it, as some lawyers consider it an 'overreach.'
