Young Thug has been hit with numerous additional charges after police raided his Atlanta home.
The charges were tacked on after police raided the rapper’s Atlanta home.
Thug made his first appearance in front of the Fulton County Magistrate judge via Zoom call on Tuesday. During a clip from the appearance that circulated online afterward, Thug’s lawyer, Brian Steel, could be seen requesting that bond be heard by the judge.
Steel has told local news outlets after the arrest that “Mr. Williams [Young Thug] committed no crime whatsoever” and he would “fight till his last drop of blood to clear him.”
Thug’s father also defended his son, stating in an interview with WSB-TV: “I think my son has been unfairly linked to a lot of things, but it’s up to us to prove it. I’ma fight for him until the end, I’m his father.”

During a press conference on Tuesday, Fulton County D.A. Fani Willis said that members of street gangs will be prosecuted to the “fullest extent of the law.”
“As the District Attorney of Fulton County my number one focus is targeting gangs, and there’s a reason for that, they are committing conservatively 75 to 80% of all of the violent crime that we are seeing within our community and so they have to be rooted out of our community,” she said. “It does not matter what your notoriety is, what your fame is if you come to Fulton County Georgia and you commit crimes, and certainly if those crimes are in furtherance of street gangs that you are going to become a target and a focus of this district attorney’s office, and we are going to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law.”
