YOUNG Thug’s lyrics are being used against him after he was named in a 56-count indictment.
The Grammy-winning rapper’s songs, including “Slime Sh*t,” “Original Slime Sh*t,” and “Anybody,” were named in the indictment as examples of “overt acts,” reports CNN.
The lyrics “I’m prepared to take them down,” “murder gang sh*t,” and “I never killed anybody but I got something to do with that body” were used as specific examples.
The use of the lyrics has sparked debate over the First Amendment, raising the question of if lyrics are protected.
The indictment charges Young Thug, rapper Gunna, and 26 others with racketeering, with charges specifically including conspiring to violate the RICO Act and participation in criminal street gang activity.
