On Wednesday (May 11), Tip jumped on his Instagram account and posed a question related to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), which the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office in Georgia has accused 28 members of the YSL crew of violating. “Why the KKK ain’t been hit wit a RICO…”,” asked T.I. in the post. In the caption, he added a thinking face emoji.

During Thugger’s hearing in Fulton County, Ga., Judge Robert Wolf denied the rapper his request for bond for fear that he’s a flight risk, as well as a risk of interfering with the RICO case and risk of committing more felonies if released. Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel, asked the judge to reconsider his motion as he vigorously defended his client. The attorney even offered to take custody of Thug’s passport and suggested that the court could order the rapper to wear an ankle monitor and confine him to his home.
