According to reports, the Cobb County District Attorney is considering whether or not to charge Birdman and Young Thug as co-conspirators in the 2015 Lil Wayne bus shooting. The DA is deliberating on whether Thugger and Birdman put the shooter, Jimmy Winfrey, up to the shooting. According to court documents, there are phone records indicating Young Thug and Winfrey spoke just 12 minutes before the shooting. There are also jailhouse phone records of Winfrey and Birdman conversing where Birdman was heard saying, “Time for you to come out here and get your money, […] You did everything you could do boss … it’s eye-opening. (It’s) strictly business, man.”
Lawyers for Young Thug and Birdman have yet to comment on the latest development.
