Young Thug and Gunna post bond for 30 Fulton County Inmates
On Sunday, (April 25) Young Thug and Gunna stepped up for Fulton County Jail inmates in an inspiring way. As reported by WSB-TV’s Michael Seiden, the two frequent collaborators and Atlanta hometown heroes ensured the release of 30 people who were stuck in jail on minor charges (and couldn’t afford to be released on their own) by helping post their bail.
“This is where we are from,” Thug told WSB-TV. “We just woke up and went to the jail with the lawyer and the D.A., the prosecutors and bond companies and just got as many people as we can out — about like 20 or 30 people.”
“If they did the crime, they can do the time — that’s alright. But [they’re] looking at a bond [that’s] higher than what they stole,” he added.
The heartwarming scenes were captured on footage with inmates seeing their loved ones again and treated to a homecooked meal after regaining their freedom.
“You never know what somebody been through,” Gunna added, “There was people sitting out three or four years and couldn’t get out on a bond. If they did the crime, then they can do the time, then it’s all right. But it’s like you’re giving them a bond higher than what they stole.”
Those who were released thanks to Thugger and Gunna’s help were served a home-cooked meal and were able to reunite with their families.
Footage from their release, as excerpted above, will be used as part of a Slime Language 2 music video
