Thug’s defeated footage is one of several issues, setbacks in jury selection for the RICO case
Thug has recently faced several setbacks since jury selection for his upcoming RICO trial,
Earlier this month, Thug and one of his 13 co-defendants were accused of exchanging drugs during a court session. Video from the courtroom shows Khalieff Adams handing him a Percocet pill in front of the courthouse. The shadow room reported.
After the exchange, a Fulton County sheriff’s deputy asked Thugga to open his hand to reveal the pill, which the rapper complied with.
Adams, Thug’s co-defendant, initially resisted and was even tased multiple times, according to the outlet. The MP eventually found additional Percocet pills, marijuana, tobacco and other contraband hidden with him.

And that was the second time one of Thug’s YSL co-defendants attempted to smuggle contraband into the Fulton County jail.
On Jan. 17, the mother of another YSL rapper, Yak Gotti, was arrested after reportedly trying to smuggle a bag filled with tobacco products and rolling paper to her son at the Fulton County Courthouse.
Meanwhile, Thug’s attorney, Brian Steele, said there was a separate investigation into a potential juror who emailed him.
