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.
