The rapper Yak Gotti was involved in a fight with another inmate in the Fulton County jail on October 8, according to sheriff's office authorities on Friday afternoon.
Yak Gotti, whose real name is Deamonte Kendrick, escaped the fight largely unhurt, according to his mother Tasha Kendrick. "He kicked the boy in the a$$,"
In the extensive indictment against the YSL collective, which also includes renowned rappers Jeffery "Young Thug" and Sergio "Gunna" Kitchens, Kendrick is being held without bond on murder, gang, and racketeering allegations. Young Thug and Kitchens are not being housed at Fulton County's Rice Street jail.
However, with the majority of the YSL crew housed in a single block on the north side of the prison, it would be preferable to keep them from engaging in a street war-related feud with another alleged Atlanta street gang, the YFN, which prosecutors claim has claimed up to 50 lives in the last seven years.
Earlier this year, another convict attacked YFN Lucy, who was imprisoned on murder and racketeering charges at Rice Street.
