The social media jabs have escalated to much more troubling news
Young Thug and Birdman (or “Baby“) have been named alongside Young Thug affiliate Jeffrey Winfrey (or Peewee Roscoe), claiming the three conspired in a plot to kill Lil Wayne. According to the reports, which are coming in via WSBTV’s Mike Petchenik’s Twitter, the indictment refers to a plot that was to be carried out in April, the month in which Weezy’s tour bus was shot at as he left the parking lot of an Atlanta venue after a show. Two months ago, Winfrey was arrested for the crime.
Some of the details that Petchenik revealed include the fact that the indictment is against Winfrey specifically, but names both Young Thug and Birdman as connected to Winfrey, and more specifically, that Winfrey was carrying out a plot devised by Young Thug. Furthermore, Thug’s most recent music video, “With That,” in which Winfrey is prominently displayed, is being used as evidence. The prosecution plans to draw a connection between the April incident, and Winfrey holding a firearm in the video of a song that mentions Lil Wayne.
Earlier today, in a separate incident, reports broke out of Atlanta that Young Thug had been arrested at his home on charges of making terroristic threats. We later learned that those threats stemmed from an April incident, in which Thug threatened to shoot a director of security at a mall in the face.
Lil Wayne’s differences with both Birdman and Young Thug have been well-documented. They center mainly around Thug naming his album Barter 6, and Birdman’s somewhat sudden allegiance to Thug, which became apparent around the same time Wayne accused him of not paying him, and holding up his album.
