Lil Wayne, Birdman, & Future Among Potential Witnesses in Young Thug, YSL Trial
Some prominent names could be called to testify against Young Thug.
As the YSL RICO trial gets underway, the state has revealed its list of potential witnesses who could take the stand in the Young Slime Life case.
According to WSB-TV, the list includes notable rappers like Lil Wayne, Future, Birdman, T.I., YFN Lucci, and Trippie Redd, as well as Rich Homie Quan and even Thug’s sister Alexis “Dolly” Grier.
The state list also includes 157 names associated with the Atlanta police department, 62 names from various law enforcement agencies, and 125 lay witnesses. However, just because a name is on the list does not mean they have agreed to cooperate.
