Akon On Young Thug: “His Career Will Be Over” If He Snitches In YSL RICO Case - WhatsOnRap


Akon predicts Young Thug will be forced to switch from rap to another genre if he cooperates in the YSL RICO case, alleging he will no longer be able to thrive in Hip Hop culture.

“The question is he willing to cooperate to save himself and his family,” Akon said in a recent interview with VladTV. “Is he willing to take that mud in the face… He has to decide whose life is more important — their life or the people he’s trying to impress… Being known to the world as a snitch is the biggest embarrassment to the world.”

At a certain time, Akon feels Thugger should do all it takes to reunite with his family, putting his profession second. However, he believes that the Punk rapper is skilled enough to succeed in genres other than rap, such as mainstream and country.

“His career will be over,” he declared. “It will be over. If he does do music, it ain’t gon’ be Hip Hop because Hip Hop they will cancel him. The good thing about him is he’s so talented this n-gga could do pop music or country.

“Them white folks don’t know nothing about what’s going on in the streets. They don’t give a fuck. So he would have to switch genres altogether to even have a chance, but Hip Hop forget it.”

Young Thug is still in jail after having numerous bond requests refused following his arrest in May as part of a massive RICO investigation against his YSL collective, which has been accused of being a "criminal street gang." The trial is scheduled to begin on January 9, 2023, but it could be postponed until March.
