Young Thug has quickly become one of hip-hop's rising rookies, making headlines thanks to an impressive string of underground favorites like "Stoner" and "Donald Glover." On Wednesday, however, the Atlanta rapper made news of another kind after an arrest on drug and traffic charges.
The rapper (real name Jeffery L. Williams) was taken to Fulton County jail on Wednesday and charged with possession of a controlled substance, reckless conduct and reckless driving, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He's being held on a $2,450 bond.
Young Thug rose through the ranks of Gucci Mane's 107 Brick Squad camp, but confirmed to Mass Appeal that he has signed to Cash Money Records. A representative for Cash Money CEO Birdman, however, told XXLMag.com that Young Thug has no official relationship with the label.
