Young Thug's followers are anxious after seeing a video of him in court looking defeated. The jury selection process in the YSL trial is still ongoing, with both sides attempting to restrict hundreds of possible jurors down to 12. Every day, Young Thug has attended in court for the proceedings.
On Tuesday (Jan. 24), courtroom video from the trial showed the rapper resting his head during a break in the proceedings and looking exhausted by it all.
Young Thug appears to be sitting in court behind a desk full of documents in a live stream of the trial that was broadcast to the Infamous Sylvia YouTube channel. Thugger appears to look out sadly at one point in the video below, at the 55-minute mark, before sinking his head face-first onto the table.
He holds the posture for more than a minute before his attorney, Brian Steel, steps up and massages Thug's back momentarily. Thug remains unconscious for a few more minutes. He eventually rises, and the court session begins.
