The Atlanta native recently spoke about the treatment of his friend Young Thug after he and several others with ties to YSL were arrested on RICO charges.

“YSL is a family. YSL is a label. YSL is a way of life. YSL is a lifestyle. YSL is not a gang. YSL is not a criminal [organization]. YSL is not a street gang. YSL is not a mob,” he wrote at the time.

Young Thug and 27 others were arrested earlier this week on suspicion of gang involvement and conspiracy to violate Georgia’s criminal extortion law.
