The YSL RICO case just took a potentially dark turn, as Young Thug went to the hospital before court. Moreover, his attorney broke the news while in a court hearing, stating that he has "no idea what his condition is currently." Furthermore, these are still initial reports with not much context as of writing this article, so this could mean many different things. However, his attorney stated that he was feeling very ill, and it's unclear how this hospitalization will affect the rest of the trial. Still, the lawyer maintained that medial officials were evaluating the rapper, so an update is likely to come soon.
Not only that, but this news follows previous reports of attorneys and Thugger himself expressing concern for his health. For example, attorney Brian Steel sought a fourth attempt at bond while claiming that Young Thug faces poor living conditions behind bars that could impact his faculties at court. "Mr. Williams is not a risk to commit a crime and he’s not a risk to flee the jurisdiction and that’s what bond is about," he told ABC News. In addition, he remarked to the outlet that he expressed to the judge that he "previously put forth compelling evidence, without doubt, that conditions can be imposed which permit bond to be set."
Young Thug Reportedly Hospitalized Before Court
Meanwhile, reports also came out concerning Young Thug's prison diet, which Steel maintained has "zero health benefits." Specifically, reports indicated that the Atlanta rapper relies on chocolate and chips to get by. Also, a lack of access to sunlight, sleep, and exercise is reportedly affecting his health in a very negative way. With all this in mind, perhaps this hospitalization will convince the court that bond is not only humane, but necessary for the trial's smooth continuation.
Regardless of those factors, we hope that the 31-year-old recovers swiftly and faces no further complications in this trial. Over a year after 28 YSL defendants were originally arrested on RICO charges, only ten remain. With processes like jury selection and court antics delaying the trial further and further, health must surely take priority in this lengthy case.
