Young Thug's Road Manager Arrested for Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting

  /  05.29.2015

Young Thug and Lil Wayne’s beef is reaching new heights. A new report claims that Lil Wayne’s tour bus was allegedly shot up by a member of Young Thug’s crew.

An arrest warrant was issued for the suspect, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, on May 21. Multiple sources in Atlanta tell TMZ that Winfrey has been Young Thug’s road manager.

He’s been charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon, and criminal gang activity.

Weezy performed at Compound nightclub in Atlanta last month. Following his appearance, shots were fired at his tour bus. The rapper and a few other members of Young Money including Lil Twist and Hood were on board at the time of the shooting, but no one was injured.

Thug and Wayne have been engaged in a public feud since Thugger announced plans to title his mixtape Carter 6. He eventually changed it to Barter 6 when he was threatened with a lawsuit.

Weezy put Thug on blast during a club appearance in April. “Before I go any further, I want ya’ll to do me a favor and stop listening to some ni**as that pose naked on their motherfuckin’ album cover,” he said.

Thugger responded in an Instagram video. “I understand that Lil Wayne is frustrated about his career and I feel him on that, but this is my idol,” he said. “I won’t ever in my life swap words with him or beef with him about nothing. This is a person that I look up to. Ha ha.”
