A Brief Recap Of The YSL RICO Trial’s Opening Statements & Mishaps
As The Shade Room previously reported, Young Thug was arrested on racketeering and conspiracy charges in May 2022. Since then, the rapper has remained in Fulton County Jail while continuing to maintain his innocence.
In November 2023, the rapper’s trial finally kicked off. But now without mishap. On the first day, Judge Ural Glanville revealed that one of the 12 jurors could not be located, pushing the proceeding back almost an hour.
Once opening statements began, prosecutors alleged that Thug was the kingpin behind an Atlanta street gang. Additionally, they alleged his record label, Young Stoner Life Records, stands for Young Slime Life.
However, day one ultimately hit another mishap when the defense alleged the prosecution presented information to the jury that they had not been informed of.

Ultimately, the defense shared their initial request for a mistrial.
Undeterred, however, Judge Glanville opted to have the trial continue. On day two, the proceedings went viral, with defense lawyers explaining Young Thug’s stage name and breaking down the meaning of “Pushin P.”

However, he opted to have the proceedings continue while maintaining that he wasn’t going to “weird” jurors out.
