Young Thug

A Superior Court judge in DeKalb County released rapper Young Thug from jail on Wednesday -- on the condition that the drug-addled rapper submit to random drug testing at least twice a week.

The troubled 27-year-old rapper apologized to the court and to his parole officer for violating the terms of his bond. He was arrested on Nov. 7 after the judge learned that he failed a random drug test.

"I'm sorry for disobeying the court. I'm sorry for disobeying my PO and being here again," Williams told the judge. "I just want to go home with my family and do right."

Thugger, whose real name is Jefferey Lamar Williams, spent 6 days behind bars. The rapper's lawyer said his client was mostly isolated on a wing reserved for high profile detainees.

The rapper refused to eat or drink for the first two days behind bars as a form of self punishment.

Thug said he thought about his six children and he wanted to be there for them.

"Over the last six days, I understood this is real life," Williams told the court. "I have two sons, ages 10 and 11. I don't want them to think that going to jail -- even if you can get out right away -- is cool. I want to grow, and I have grown. I've made mistakes and I've been penalized for them. I'm sorry, and won't disobey again."

Thugger was arraigned Thursday on eight felony charges stemming from a September 2017 arrest on drug charges.

The rapper was found to be in possession of methamphetamines, and prescription pain relievers hydrocodone and liquid codeine.

    He would be so handsome if he gets the tattoos and holes outta his face.

    He went on the hunger strike to be put in Protective Custody, i could imagine how many people were trying to shake him down for the little time he was there.

    A rich man going to jail with general jail public is a recipe for disaster. that ninja was scared as hell

    Girl, where I'm from, not eating for two days in the real world (unless you're homeless and don't have a choice - Almighty forbid) is called fasting or a breakup. LOL

  • ohdearme

    If he doesn't seek help through a rehab center he's sure to be dirty again, the judges have heard it all before. He didn't just become a father while he was locked up.

  • MsVAllDay

    He obviously needs rehab to be a condition of his probation!

    He’ll be back in there before Christmas. Regular folks could never *money talks* should have put his ass in court mandated rehab for 60 days you sending him right back home? How long does cocaine/lean/ and God knows what else he partakes in stays in your system?

    this guy's family needs to surround him and keep him out of the club, off social media, and away from the trap.... send him away for some real treatment and recovery. he's at that 'magical' age where it seems it could go either way for a person in 'the business' at his age.

    you got another chance... don't fugg it up!

  • Love Luv

    I have no idea. Lol. That’s from my late night googling lmbo.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Folks like him don't eat anyways ... so technically he still full of shyt....... folks like him food is drugs and sex .... das it ...... them folks that be on that mess don't eat .... he will be back in jail in the future and use some other mental (fake problem) for sympathy to get out ... people like him can't heal .... which is fawked up for real people that truly have mental problems because they don't get that luxury to be freed .... Fawk this cat!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Said on other post I think he needs rehab. That was so dumb for him to NOT go in the first place and instead getting busted dirty. He didnt take it serious until he was locked up for it. If he is a true addict which he might be...prison by far is not the answer. Its more drugs in there...than there are out here. Rehab and then prision. Rehab during prison...but prison alone doesnt clean up not ONE drug head I ever knew. I dont want him being in the 27 Curse Club.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Two days? Two days?!?! Lol. Bruh...that's all you had in you? I mean was being in jail not punishment enough?

    But then again... he probably would have a ball ( or four) in prison.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    it got real when the gel doors started slamming shut. he will also learn now who his real friends are. i wish him well, smh

  • Blaque Mahogany

    He would have just gotten out and started getting high again. You can't force anyone to get clean. They have to want that for themselves.

  • Renee26

    Some of those drugs will curb the appetite... Percs and Ex will have people forgetting they need to eat

    So I've heard

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    you're right. we all learn life's lessons at our own pace. hopefully, this situation is his moment to wake-up and decide that he wants to change his ways and improve his life. time will tell....

  • xenaD

    Well damn what was he on? Maybe he failed a weed test! That’s what I thought but nowadays no ones getting remanded for no damn weed (unless it violates his probation) lol ok I’m back to thinking it was loud ???

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    These ninjas have trouble staying away from that weed and that lean/sizzurp. Sorry, but I'm skeptical that he's going to come up clean on his future drug tests. If they don't nail him again by Christmas/New-Year's I'll be a little surprised.

  • WhoKnew

    Going on a "say no to drugs strike" would be more helpful.

  • EMILY POST

    Kids really look up to these rappers . Smh

  • Dahl

    It looks like a maggot is resting at the edge of his mouth...

  • WhoKnew

    ...just in time for the holidays. You may be right. He'll be back before Christmas.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Sounds like he's a pill head. Liquid codeine (Syrup), methamphetamine and hydrocodone. It wasn't just weed.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    What are the drugs hes taking, i hope it ain't weed.

  • RaginB

    Random drug testing? Twice a week?...good luck buddy,it’s hard to put tha blunt down.

  • Banka

    Yeah he sorry but sorry won't cut it when your facing 8 felonies.....smh!!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    they said loud & lean.... and those felonies weren't for weed (i think i read meth and some more stuff in Sandra's earlier post on him....)

  • Banka

    Lol right, 2 days of not eating was not punishment,. That was him thinking he would bond out soon, then day 3 came around and he was like yeah " I think I am going to eat my egg and bologna today" lmao

  • TMW

    Until next time...

  • Indies beauty

    Okay. I like him but I dont see this ending well because he is a rapper and because of his lifestyle. He needs rehab to change.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    This need to be an all encompassing help program for him. He needs a good drug program, a therapist to help him with coping skills and rooting out why the need for drugs happen and how to put in methods that can help him make better choices.. You can't just say I will stop without the help an support. His heart may be willing to stop doing this,but his health has to align with the heart to be successful.

  • Renee26

    Absolutely

  • hi-liter

    Everyone has room to grow. Hopefully he’s sincere.

    Sandra can run out he didn't eat to punish himself, he may have just been depressed. I don't really know who this guy is but hopefully he doesn't get himself locked up again any time soon and is a good father to his kids

    Thugga hit me up ill give u a diagnosis to justify your drug use and after that u cant b penalized for it but u have to agree to do therapy ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm only reporting what his lawyer said. I'm not surprised the hunger strike only lasted 2 days. The jail's medical staff would force him to take fluids -- by IV if necessary -- if he went longer than 2 days without drinking. The kidneys will shut down if he didn't take a drink.

  • Love Luv

    Yass lol. I thought I was alone. Hey if you can’t make yourself laugh ?

    ****

    Beautiful and, I believe, sincere humility.

    I’m rooting for this young man and father of six.

  • the guest

    I think it’s safe to say he didn’t eat because he probably couldn’t keep food down due to withdrawal as he is reported addicted to several kinds of drugs. Appears that judge sentenced him for his own good to get him detoxed. He must have been in bad shape when they arrested him and all parties including himself felt he needed some time.

  • Junkanoo

    I see ,I didn't know any of the backstory , hopefully he is serious about fighting for his sobriety cause if this isn't a turning point for him things could only get worse.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    In Jesus name, I pray he means this.

  • Rayne

    Everybody thinks about their kids when they’re locked up. How much time did you think about them when you were smoking dope and drinking hooch?

  • the guest

    It's unfortunate but a lot of the young rappers are dealing with addiction. Young Thug needs to be strong. He's got six children depending on him.

  • Guess Who

    He looks like the trifling Aunt who has over 10 kids but they all in the system and she ain't raised none of them.

  • Mister Fantastic

    That wasn't a hunger strike. That was drug WITHDRAWALS...

  • WhoYouTalkingAbout

    He'll be back

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Please dont make him miss any meals he will disappear all together !!!!!!!!

  • Malcom Flex

    He sho is ugly.

  • Junkanoo

    The entertainment industry is not for the weak not only are drugs everywhere you turn I think some want artists addicted to drugs for their own personal gain. He's so young he may not want to stop having fun but fun can also be had drug free.

  • da troof

    it should have come out in autotune and annoyed the judge..
