Young Thug has reportedly been named alongside Birdman in an indictment that alleges their involvement in a conspiracy to kill Lil Wayne in April. That month Lil Wayne's tour-bus was shot at while the rapper and several others departed from a show in Atlanta. Now, fresh off a story of Thugger's separate legal troubles, WSBTV reporter Mike Petchenik has broken news of the indictment that claims that both Young Thug and Birdman conspired with suspect Jimmy Winfrey in a plot to take down Weezy. Winfrey, who goes by the stage name PeeWee Roscoe, was arrested in connection with the shooting in May.
Petchenik reports that neither Young Thug or Birdman are charged in the indictment which instead highlights a connection between Winfrey and the two artists. According to Petchenik, prosecutors are even trying to use Thug's "Halftime" video as evidence in the indictment, claiming that the visuals show Winfrey holding an assault rifle during a song that makes mention of Lil Wayne's name. Petchenik doled out some more news in a Tweet reporting that the indictment claims Winfrey "carried out" Thug's threat with the violence. According to WSBTV, the indictment was filed back in June.
