Young Thug is someone who fans have been rooting for over the past couple of years. Overall, this is because he is on trial in the YSL RICO case. If he loses, he could end up in prison for decades. Furthermore, the use of lyrics in this trial sets a dangerous precedent for the future of hip-hop. Ultimately, fans believe that Thug winning would help preserve artistic expression. Moreover, many just want Thug to be around and active in the music game for as long as possible.

Unfortunately, Thugger has been subjected to some invasions of privacy as of late. For instance, a video of himself and Mariah The Scientist on a jail call was leaked online. Overall, it was something that fans didn't exactly want to see. Although many people ended up watching it as it hit their timelines, others were simply a bit uncomfortable while watching it. Now, new footage has surfaced, this time, of officers searching Thugger's jail cell. This footage comes from the officer's bodycams, and you can see what was present in his cell.

Overall, the officers were simply doing a routine check for contraband, according to XXL. Throughout their search, they went through magazines and books. Moreover, they inspected the rapper's wall which contained a plethora of photographs. One of these photos just so happened to include Jerrika Karlae, who is Thug's ex. Given what went down with Mariah The Scientist last week, some people are curious about what this could all mean. Regardless, most are simply concerned with Thugger and his jail conditions. It is clear that his privacy is being disrespected right now, and many feel like that is a great injustice.
