Young Thug is once again behind bars.

Thugger, whose birth name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, has been booked in Georgia’s DeKalb County Jail after failing a drug test during a scheduled arraignment on Nov. 8, according to Pitchfork.

The rapper was out on bond for felony drug and gun charges stemming from an arrest in September 2017. Thug turned himself in on Sept. 11 and was released on Sept. 13 on bond. His bond has now been revoked.

Last year, the rapper was arrested and hit with eight felony charges for possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, codeine, hydrocodone, xanax, an amphetamine, and a firearm. “I will do everything that is lawful and ethical to clear Mr. Williams of this false allegation,” attorney Brian Steel told theAtlanta Journal-Constitution following Thug’s arrest last year.

According to the AJC, Thug’s indictment is connected to charges against his label signee Gunna, who was with Thug during the arrest last year. Gunna was accused of misdemeanor charges of window tint violation and possessing less than an ounce of marijuana. The window tint is reportedly the reason Thug, Gunna, and Cedric Jones were pulled over in Brookhaven, Atlanta by police to begin with.

Thugger has been teasing Barter 7, but the project still has yet to see the light of day, and this arrest might push it back even further. The project will follow-up hit debut commercial mixtape Barter 6 in 2015, which included appearances by Jacquees, T.I., Boosie Badazz, and Birdman.
