Young Thug Supposedly Listening To Lil Baby In Court

No matter what crazy court antic hits the YSL RICO case next, at least Young Thug has his headphones in on occasion to drown out the noise. Moreover, he was recently filmed singing along to an unspecified song during court proceedings. However, once fans pieced things together, they actually found that Thugger was rapping along to "Heyy" by close friend and frequent collaborator Lil Baby. Overall, with his hand motions and expressions in mind, at least it looked like he was enjoying himself as he recited the banger. Also, it's good to see that he's still bumping his fellow Atlanta MC during all his struggles.

Unfortunately, Young Thug's relationship with other iconic collaborators is, at the very least, unclear. Furthermore, fans expressed confusion when they found that the "Metro Spider" artist linked Gunna's latest album on his Instagram bio. Just when fans thought they reconciled after his plea deal, the link disappeared from the social media page altogether, which only added more fuel to that fire. Still, that could mean anything, and it's also unclear who made that change on the account.

Lil Baby Says "Heyy" To Young Thug In Court

As far as Young Thug's struggles, he reportedly faces pretty insufficient conditions in prison, raising concerns for his health. One of these crucial aspects is his nutrition, as the food at Fulton County Jail was deemed unhealthy by his attorney. Reportedly, he makes do with chocolate and chips to stay fed and full as he awaits his trial. In addition, complaints emerged surrounding limited access to sunlight, exercise, and other key components of mental and physical health. As such, his attorney Brian Steel recently filed a fourth motion of bond for the rapper, yet his previous attempts proved unsuccessful. Hopefully, if only for the sake of his health, this time will be different.

Meanwhile, Thugger's older brother Unfoonk reportedly violated his plea deal conditions, resulting in another arrest. Without a doubt, plea deals have been at the center of most conversations surrounding this case. What's clear is that, whether within or outside prison, Thug does have people rooting for him in the industry. Sometimes it takes a song to be reminded of that, especially when other factors become so complicated. Regardless, stay logged into HNHH for the latest news and updates concerning Young Thug.
