A trial date has been set for a jury to hear the state's RICO racketeering case against rappers Young Thug (left) and Gunna (right).
Young Thug, real name Jeffery Williams, is expected to appear in court today (May 23) where he will plead not guilty, according to CBS Atlanta affiliate WGCL News.
YSL artist Gunna turned himself in on May 13. He is charged with one count of racketeering. Gunna was booked into the Fulton County Jail.
Their trial date is set for January 9, 2023.
Thug was arrested on May 9 following a raid on his $2.2 million Buckhead mansion. He is charged with conspiracy to violate the state's Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations ACT (RICO) and gang activity.
Fulton County DA Fani Willis told WSB TV that Thug's Young Slime Life or Young Stoner Life (YSL) street gang are responsible for more than 50 murders and incidents of gun violence across Atlanta dating back to 2012.
Thug is currently sitting in Georgia's notorious Cobb County Jail, where three inmates allegedly died in the past month.
