Rapper Young Thug's felony arrest warrant issued in Georgia
Rapper Young Thug has been charged with possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone, and weed.
Rapper Young Thug is reportedly facing arrest after a felony warrant was issued in his name in Georgia. This comes shortly after his indictment on drug charges. TMZ learned the news from their law enforcement sources. Initially, they had broken the story of the slew of charges against him, wherein they listed a total of eight felonies that he was wanted for.
The 27-year-old, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, was charged with "possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone, and weed. He's also charged with possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam, codeine (2 counts) and a firearm," notes the outlet.
The felony charges were slammed on Williams, stemming from his arrest in September 2017. Back then, cops had pulled him over for having tinted windows. Following that, he was ultimately charged with possession of marijuana.

But that isn't all that the rapper's legal team had to be grilling their brains for, as just last month he was arrested after his birthday party/Slime Language launch party for possession of a concealed weapon. His legal issues have been rampant in the recent past, with just last week seeing the rapper charged with all those multiple felonies for drug and gun possession. Now, with the grand jury officially issuing a felony warrant for his arrest, he might be arrested anytime soon.
Williams hasn't publicly responded to the warrant as of yet, even though he did drop some cryptic tweets over the weekend. One of them particularly read "Fuck 12 4life" and could be alluding to the felony charges. He's due in court for his arraignment in a month, on October 9.

But legal troubles aside, Williams seems to have quite the follow up to Slime Language. He took to Twitter yesterday to announce his album 'On The Run's launch date, which - as stated on the day of the tweet (September 9) - was supposed to be dropping in just two days. Let's just hope he arrives in time for his album!
