JEFFERY: Young Thug from fame to RICO trial | Full documentary series

The 11Alive exclusive ‘Jeffery’ series unravels the high-profile grand jury indictment of Atlanta rapper Jeffery Williams, better known as Young Thug. We explore the impact of the controversial indictment, which alleges that his prominent record label, YSL, is allegedly connected to street gang activity, according to Fulton County prosecutors.

The recent events reignited a decades-long conversation about the use of rap lyrics in courtrooms across the country, the movement to protect Black art, and the precedent this case could set.

As this notorious case nears a trial date, 11Alive’s ‘Jeffery’ series gives an exclusive lens into what this case means – legally, artistically and culturally. And where do the lines blur between art and reality?

11Alive’s Neima Abdulahi has conducted interviews with the key players, traced all the contours of both the case and the culture and brings the definitive telling of a defining Atlanta figure ahead of one of the most-anticipated trials the city has ever seen.
