Young Thug and Gunna Charged in Massive Gang Activity and Racketeering Bust

Atlanta rappers Young Thug and Gunna have both been named as part of a sprawling indictment in Fulton County, Atlanta, alleging criminal activities in and their affiliation with the gang Young Slime Life, according to indictments obtained by Variety. The news was first reported by journalist Michael Seiden at metro Atlanta news network WSB-TV.

Young Thug has already been arrested on charges of gang activity and conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). His mugshot was released to the media. Gunna has also been charged with one count of conspiracy to violate RICO, but has not been taken into custody at this time.

The indictment includes 28 total defendants affiliated with Young Slime Life, and charges them with 56 counts.

Young Thug and Gunna are both ubiquitous in the rap scene and at the height of the careers. Thug’s October 2021 album “Punk” became his third to debut at number one on the Billboard 200, including a project released earlier that year. He was also featured on Drake’s viral single “Way 2 Sexy” late last year. Meanwhile, Gunna’s new album “DS4Ever” debuted at number one in January, and he was the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” just last month.
