Young Thug's Dad Speaks on Gunna, Claims He Hasn't Done Anything That Can Hurt Son's Case - WhatsOnRap

 Young Thug's Father On Gunna: " He Hasn't Done Anything"

Father of Young Thug Defends Gunna, Citing Lack of Harmful Actions in Case
In a recent interview with Infamous Sylvia, Jeffery Williams Sr., the father of incarcerated rapper Young Thug, offered a surprising endorsement of fellow artist Gunna. Williams Sr. expressed his admiration for Gunna, emphasizing that Gunna's actions have had no detrimental impact on Young Thug's legal case.
“I love Gunna. Gunna hasn’t done anything whatsoever that can hurt us on this case. Period.”

This endorsement stands in contrast to the opinions of other artists, such as Lil Durk and Boosie Badazz, who have been critical of Gunna, even going so far as to label him a "rat." Gunna was among 28 individuals arrested in connection to the YSL case. However, he later secured his release through an Alford plea in late 2022. This plea acknowledges guilt while maintaining the assertion of innocence.

Gunna demonstrated his solidarity with Young Thug during a recent performance at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Illuminating the stage with a "Free Jeffery" sign, he used the spotlight to advocate for Thug's release. The sold-out show featured electrifying renditions of hits like "back to the moon," "bread & butter," and "fukumean," among others.

Simultaneously, Young Thug's father turned to social media to question the bail discrepancy between his son and former president Donald Trump. In August, Williams Sr. held a sign that called attention to the differing bail outcomes, highlighting that both Thug and Trump faced similar charges, yet their bond situations were starkly different. The message was a direct appeal to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who led the indictment against both Thug and Trump. The plea was clear: "Make justice fair!"

As Young Thug continues to await the commencement of jury selection for his trial, the support from his father and peers remains unwavering. The intricate web of legal proceedings surrounding YSL underscores the complexities of the case, while artists like Gunna play a unique role within this intricate narrative.
