Report: Birdman, Young Thug Conspired to Kill Lil Wayne

Birdman and Young Thug have been accused of plotting to kill Lil Wayne. An indictment filed in Cobb County, Ga. last month alleges that there was a conspiracy when the Young Money rapper’s tour buses were shot up in April.

Jimmy Carlton Winfrey was arrested on June 2 in connection with the shooting, which he did to gain “street cred” with his fellow Blood gang members, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

According to Channel 2 Action News, the indictment alleges that Winfrey, Jeffery Lamar Williams aka Young Thug, and Bryan Williams aka Birdman, are all members of the Bloods and were involved in a RICO conspiracy. Lil Wayne is also allegedly a member of the gang.

However, Young Thug and Birdman were not charged in the incident. But Young Thug was arrested Wednesday after allegedly threatening to shoot a mall security guard in the face.

Winfrey was indicted in June on six charges—aggravated assault, terroristic threats and acts, criminal damage, possession of a firearm by a felon, criminal gang activity, reckless conduct, and discharging a weapon near the street.

This is the latest development in an ongoing feud between Birdman and Lil Wayne. On Sunday night, the Cash Money boss allegedly dumped a drink on Weezy during an appearance at LIV nightclub in Miami. Wayne is suing Baby for $51 million and his release from Cash Money Records.
