The latest on Young Thug’s trial sees the naming of a total of 372 potential witnesses to testify against Young Thug in the YSL Rico case. While the jury selection is still ongoing, the case proceedings have actually begun. According to Hot New Hip Hop, the state has popular rap stars Lil Wayne and Birdman on its list.
It is known that the troubles that Lil Wayne has with Young Thug have been documented, but a few big names in hip-hop were also listed as persons of interest on the list of witnesses. These names include Alexis “Dolly” Grier, who is the sister of Young Thug, YFN Lucci, YMCMB’s CEO Birdman, and Rich Homie Quan.
While the list of people the state has provided to testify against Young Thug is quite large, it is quite alarming to note that 157 of these people have law enforcement backgrounds. However, not all of these 157 people are currently on active duty. Some are also connected to the Atlanta Police Department, while others hail from other locations.
Some of Young Thug’s co-defendants, however, are not rolling over in spite of the state’s long list of potential witnesses. Miley Farley, who is also known as Lil Miles, is also accused of being part of the murder of YSL Rico. Lil’ Miles’ attorneys named a total of 25 witnesses to aid in their testimonies a day before the state list was submitted.
Their list reportedly includes T.I., Future, Trippie Redd, Killer Mike, and Young Thug’s fiancée, Jerrika Karlae. It was also reported that educators and city council members were also called on to testify in favour of Young Thug.
The co-defendant list fell to twenty after eight of them took plea deals. Six of the co-defendants will be tried separately, while fourteen will testify in the coming week. Gunna was one of the eight who accepted the plea deal and has since been released; however, the deal required him to testify against Young Thug, but his attorney told the news that if called upon to do so, he may plead the fifth.
Yardhype will continue to post updates on the YSL trial available as long as the case is still ongoing.
