Drake and Meek Mill Slam County Officials After Young Thug's Jail Video Call Leaks

Thug's Legal Saga: Drake and Meek Mill Speak Out on Controversial Video Leaks and Court Intricacies
On January 25, Drake took to the public arena to express his dissatisfaction with the way Young Thug's YSL RICO case was being handled, specifically addressing Judge Ural Glanville. This critique emerged following the online surfacing of a video call featuring the incarcerated "Hot" rapper.

Commenting on DJ Akademiks' repost, Drake voiced his disapproval of the leak, stating:
This gotta be some form of jail misconduct. [How are] you gonna drag this talented man and then not be able to control your employees using his personal business for their own gain? Somebody benefitted from this video even existing and that’s shameful. [The] whole case is a wash. Just [free] the guy and let him come home and continue bringing light to Atlanta.

- Drake

The clip, shared on January 24, portrayed Thug in conversation with his girlfriend, Mariah The Scientist. Drake, expressing his frustration on Instagram Stories, wrote, “S**t is disgraceful… Is this a criminal case or Atlanta social media promo, Ural Glanville?” Notably, Thug and Drake have collaborated on several tracks, including “Oh U Went,” “Ice Melts,” “Parade on Cleveland,” “D4L,” and “Sacrifices.”

Meek Mill also voiced his concerns on Twitter, deeming it a "top-tier lawsuit" and emphasizing that personal calls should not be leaked to the public. He had previously commented on the use of song lyrics in Thug’s trial, asserting that rappers may not be accountable for all the lyrics used in their songs.

It should be impossible to charge Thug and [YFN] Lucci for lyrics because in the studio, we all give each other lines and don’t remember who said what after a high night in the studio,” Meek noted. “I have done it with both of them… They both gave me lyrics [before]… We all do this!

-Meek Mill

After a three-week hiatus, legal proceedings for Thug resumed, briefly interrupted by an incident where the musician's co-defendant was stabbed in jail. 

The case continues to be a center of attention, garnering interest not only for its legal complexities but also for the uproar surrounding the leaked personal video calls and the participation of prominent figures such as Drake and Meek Mill.
