Rapper Young Thug Allegedly Involved in ‘Hand-to-Hand’ Drug Deal in Court


Rapper Young Thug and one of his co-defendants allegedly participated in a “hand-to-hand” drug deal when the rapper was in a Georgia courtroom on Wednesday, according to a motion filed Thursday by the Fulton County District Attorney’s office.

Video shared by WSB-TV reporter Michael Seiden reportedly shows co-defendant Kahlieff Adams handing the rapper, whose name is Jeffrey Williams, a Percocet pill as he sat at a table next to his lawyer.

Young Thug faces trial in Atlanta along with 13 others.

A deputy noticed the exchange between Kahlieff Adams and Young Thug and confiscated the rapper’s pill, according to WSB-TV.

The district attorney’s motion noted that deputies found drugs — Percocet, marijuana, tobacco — and “other contraband” on Kahlieff Adams, the news outlet noted.

Keith Adams, a lawyer for the rapper, said his client had “nothing to do” with what happened in court on Wednesday.

“One of the co-defendants tried to pass something to Mr. Williams on his way to the restroom, who immediately turned it over to the deputy sheriff,” said Keith Adams.

Kahlieff Adams’ attorney, Teombre Calland, also likened the allegations to “mere statements,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“These allegations are simply that: mere statements by the state in an effort to thwart the duration of the jury selection process,” Calland said in a statement.

“Mr. Adams adamantly maintains his innocence and looks forward to the conclusion of this process.”
