Lil Wayne reportedly might have to “testify” in Young Thug’s ongoing YSL RICO Trial, prosecutor Adriana Love showed Weezy's alleged old tweets in court

The state of Georgia is hoping to avoid having to call Dwayne “Weezy” Carter to the stand — following Young Thug's YSL RICO trial, related to the 2015 tour bus shooting.

The Latest News of Young Thug‘s ongoing YSL Rico trial in relation to his 2015 tour bus shooting.

Judge Ural Glanville denied Fulton County prosecutors' attempt to introduce clips of Lil Wayne talking about Young Thug as evidence in the YSL RICO trial on Wednesday, (May 1).

“It seems like you all are trying really hard not to call [Lil Wayne] and that’s your choice,” Glanville told D.A. Adriane Love.

“If you don’t call him, my ruling will stand on these particular exhibits that you are trying to introduce.”

The prosecution is looking to use the 2015 shooting against Young Thug, as he reportedly hired affiliate PeeWee Roscoe to carry it out. Roscoe was eventually sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years of probation over the matter, but his conviction was overturned in 2018.

While Lil Wayne making it into the courtroom is not guaranteed, the driver of his tour bus at the time, Alvin Lewis, is set to take the stand on Monday (May 6). He previously sued Thug, Birdman and Roscoe over the shooting in 2016.

However, videos of Wayne discussing the matter may not make it into evidence, Judge Glanville previously ruled that Fulton County prosecutors will be able to use a long conversation Thug had with authorities in July 2015 amid the tour bus shooting’s investigation.

Jeffery "Young Thug" Williams attorneys attempted to have the results of that talk declared inadmissible for the RICO trial – which at the time had not yet started – arguing that the interview with law enforcement violated Thug’s right to counsel and statements he gave “were not voluntarily made.”

Glanville, however, disagreed as he ruled that Thug didn’t actually have a right to counsel in that situation, because even though he was in police custody, he hadn’t been charged in the case the authorities were asking him about.
