Young Thug's father, Jeffery Williams Sr., says Lil Baby “needs to shut the fuck up” when it comes to dissing Gunna.

In December of last year, Gunna issued a statement revealing he had "chosen to end my own RICO case with an Alford plea and end my personal ordeal by publicly acknowledging my association with YSL." As Gunna himself explained, this meant he entered a guilty plea to the single charge against him, while simultaneously maintaining his innocence.

"While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case, and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way," Gunna said at the time.

In the months since, some have criticized Gunna, despite him not being involved with the trial proceedings. Just this month, for example, a video surfaced on social media that appeared to show Liil Baby saying "fuck the rats" when his DJ put on his and Gunna's 2018 hit "Drip Too Hard."

Asked by Infamous Sylvia to reveal how he feels about Baby “throwing shots at Gunna” over his Alford plea, Thug’s father questioned why the It’s Only Me artist hasn’t shown support by making an appearance at the trial.

"He needs to shut the fuck up because he don’t know what’s going on," he said, as seen in the clip above. "You know, he’s going off of what he heard. Ask Lil Baby has he ever came to a court date. That’s what I want y’all to ask these goddamn rappers and these bloggers with this whole 'snitch' shit. When have y’all went to a court date to support Slime, to support Jeffery, to support Thug, however you wanna name him?"

From there, Jeffery Sr. reiterated his advice.

"Everybody that hasn’t been there needs to shut the fuck up about Gunna," he said.

This moment came during his Tuesday night discussion with the court vlogger. See the full interview below.

Last week, a rep for the Fulton County Sheriff's Office confirmed in a statement to Complex that Shannon Stillwell, a co-defendant in the larger YSL case, had been stabbed in jail. In court, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Ural Glanville told jurors to not get “too comfortable” because the day’s proceedings were ending early with a recess.

"We’ve had a medical issue come up with one of our participants so I’m going to have to recess for today,” Glanville said at the time. “These things happen."

The following day, the trial was put on hold until Jan. 2.
