When news broke earlier this week that Birdman threw a drink on Lil Wayne as he performed at Liv nightclub in Miami, we knew things had escalated far beyond their legal issues of Wayne trying to leave Cash Money Records: but we didn’t know things were this bad between the two.
According to numerous reports, Birdman, Young Thug and one of Young Thug’s affiliates Jeffrey Winfrey could all soon be named in an indictment surrounding a plot to kill Lil Wayne.
Mike Petchenik of WSBTV reports that the plot was to be carried out this past April. Lil Wayne’s tour bus was shot at in April as he left a performance in Atlanta, which happens to be Young Thug’s hometown. Winfrey was later arrested for the incident.
Petchenik relays that the indictment with Winfrey specifies both Birdman and Young Thug as co-conspirators, and specifically names Young Thug as the mastermind behind the tour bus shooting. Additionally, Thug’s latest music video, “With That,” which Winfrey appears in, is also being used as evidence in the indictment. Prosecutors plan to connect Winfrey’s appearance in the clip brandishing a firearm for the camera with the fact that Lil Wayne is mentioned in the song.
As previously reported, Young Thug was recently arrested at his home in an unrelated incident and charged with making terrorist threats for threatening to shoot a mall security guard in the face.
