This week begins the high-profile RICO trial against Young Thug and YSL.

Slated to begin Jan. 9, eight of the original 28 defendants in the case have taken plea deals including Gunna and Young Thug’s brother Unfoonk. Young Thug, who was not offered a plea deal, has been charge with eight out of 65 counts including conspiracy to violate the R.I.C.O. act, two counts of participation in criminal street gang activity and possession of both marijuana and codeine with intent to distribute.

“Jeffrey Williams [Thug] and Atlanta-based hip-hop artists made YSL a well-known name by referring to it in his songs and on social media. YSL uses a variety of identifiers including colors, clothing, tattoos, hand signs, as well as verbal and written identifiers,” read Judge Ural Glanville on Wednesday, Jan. 4. “YSL claims affiliation with the national Bloods gang and some associates also claim the Blood subset gangs, Sex, Money, Murder or 30d. YSL associates often display their colors by wearing a green or red bandana on their person, a practice known as flagging,” he continued.

With the trial being just days away,  WSB-TV revealed a list of 28 potential witnesses who will testifying in Young Thug’s defense including Killer Mike and Thug’s protégé Lil C-Note, as well as Kevin Liles, co-founder of Young Stoner Life Records, and Lyor Cohen, YouTube’s Global Head of Music.

However, they will be going up against the state’s list which includes 157 names connected to the Atlanta police department, 62 names from various law enforcement agencies and 125 lay witnesses, that include YFN Lucci, Lil Wayne, Young Thug’s sister Dolly, Rich Homie Quan, and Birdman.
