Just one day after Blac Youngsta turned himself in to police in connection with the targeted shooting of Young Dolph, Young Thug releases a new song in his honor, “Free Blac Youngsta.”
Over thumping production from Wheezy and DY of 808 Mafia, Thugger sings about his incarcerated collaborator. “I say free Blac Youngsta,” Jeffery harmonizes on the hook. “R.I.P. your mama / I say free Blac Youngsta / Fuck 12, free Blac Youngsta.”
As the song’s curtains close, Thug extends the sentiments to many others. “Free everybody locked up,” he says. “Even the ops. I wouldn’t wish jail on no ni**a, even the ops. You dig?”
Blac turned himself in to Charlotte police on Tuesday (May 16) after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The rapper, whose real name is Sammie Benson, was reportedly wanted in connection with an incident that left Dolph’s bulletproof vehicle shot more than 100 times.
According to reports, the warrant was issued for Blac’s arrest after officials found a van that was said to be involved in the shooting. Blac’s lawyer claimed that the rapper rented the van, but said it was later stolen. Youngsta added: “Obviously somebody’s ratting, somebody snitching.”
Last month, Jeffery announced his “singing album” Easy Breezy Beautiful Thugger Girls, which is being executive produced by Drake.
