Back in mid-August, it was reported that Atlanta-bred trap star Young Thug was arrested the night of his 27th birthday in the midst of the listening party for his latest album, Slime Language. A video surfaced of the “Lifestyle” emcee being escorted out of his party, but was set free less than a day later, despite being reportedly hit with charges for concealing a weapon. A month later, he turned himself in after police issued a warrant for his arrest. Thugger was slammed with eight felony charges, stemming from a 2017 drug case, including possession and intent to distribute meth, marijuana, Xanax and other drugs, as well as another weapon charge.
