The jury in the YSL Rico case will begin seating this week. According to 11Alive, Judge Ural Glanville would begin seating the jury on Wednesday, Nov. 1. The seating comes from the Georgia speedy trial law.

Young Thug put in a request for a speedy trial after his arrest last year but the jury selection process began in January and has lasted until the decision from Glanville. The selection is considered to be “the longest in Georgia” history.

Recent attempts to secure a bond for Young Thug have been denied, as Young THug’s legal team states he is struggling with jail conditions and has gained weight.

With the trial looming, Young Thug and his legal team are reportedly preparing a witness list. According to AllHipHop, ATL Hip-Hop is present on the list with names including Killer Mike and T.I.

Additional names that could fit the list of representatives for Young Thug include industry executives like Lyor Cohen, Julie Greenwald, Trae The Truth, and more. The start of the trial is still undetermined.

Throughout the run of the YSL Rico trial, fans have wondered what role Gunna has played in Young Thug’s continued stay in jail. After Gunna was freed on an Alford Plea, rumors ran rampant that he snitched on Thugger. Young Thug’s father offers some context.

Gunna maintained his innocence against snitching allegations and continued to call for the release of Young Thug. Appearing in an interview with Infamous Sylvia, Young Thug’s father, Jeffrey Williams Sr., stated he loves Gunna.

“Let me try to help the attorney clarify that a little simpler,” Williams Sr. said. “Gunna hasn’t done anything whatsoever that can hurt us on this case, period.”

“I love Gunna… Gunna hasn’t done anything whatsoever that can hurt us on this case. Period. ”
