Fortunately Lil Wayne was not seriously harmed.
Young Thug was involved in a shooting targeted at Lil Wayne’s tour bus in April, Georgia prosecutors believe.
Lil Wayne later dismissed the lawsuit “due to venue issues while problems continued between (Lil Wayne) and (Birdman)”.
Neither Young Thug nor Birdman have been officially charged with any crimes related to the shooting of Lil Wayne’s bus or any murder conspiracies.
Mentioned in the indictment were two performers: Jeffery Lamar Williams, 22, better known as Young Thug, and Bryan Williams, a.k.a. Birdman.
The court indictment cites that the pair worked with gunman Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, Young Thug’s tour manager, and are members of the Bloods Street Gang. Over the winter, Wayne sued Cash Money for million. The police found where he hid the Camaro, obtained a warrant, and found the auto in the garage of one of his relatives. After the escort ended, Winfrey allegedly pulled up alongside the two tour buses on Interstate 285 and shots from a. 40 caliber handgun and 9mm handgun were fired from the auto at the buses.
The dynamic between the former Cash Money labelmates soured previous year following a dispute over management and the release of Lil Wayne’s latest album, Tha Carter V. Winfrey hid the Camaro and headed to Miami-but he also had posted a picture of the auto on Instagram, which he tried to delete.
And maybe more surprisingly, at least a portion of the case is based on rap lyrics and music videos.
Mike Petchenik of WSB-TV Atlanta offered details on the indictment via Twitter that include the video for Thug’s “Halftime” being used as evidence.
Winfrey was was charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon, and criminal gang activity in connection with the tour bus shooting.
