Young Thug Cleared of Felony Drug and Gun Charges
TMZ reports that Young Thug has been cleared of felony gun and drug charges related to a 2015 raid on his Sandy Springs house, a suburb just outside of Atlanta, Ga.
Young Thug's lawyers argued that police entered the house with an illegal search warrant. The rapper was initially charged with felony cocaine possession, felony marijuana possession and three counts of felony gun possession, though the D.A. had since dropped all but the marijuana charge. A judge agreed with Young Thug's lawyers, who said that charge should also be dropped, since police didn't have a proper warrant, leaving the rapper in the clear.
On the music front, Thugger is off to a busy year, teaming with everyone from Birdman to Rick Ross and Calvin Harris on new collaborations.
