Rapper Young Thug arrested for alleged gang activity

Atlanta rapper Young Thug was arrested in Georgia on Monday, on charges including participating in criminal street gang activity.
 
He has also been charged with conspiring to violate a federal law aimed at combatting organised crime.
 
The 30-year-old, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, was arrested at his Buckhead, Atlanta home as part of a larger grand jury indictment which names 28 members and associates of his record label YSL.
 
The indictment defines YSL, which stands for "Young Slime Life" as a criminal street gang and an affiliate of the national Bloods gang.
 
Rapper Gunna was also named in the indictment. 
 
Young Thug is being held in Fulton County Jail and was due to appear in court on Tuesday.
