One of the numerous disputes pertaining to Young Thug’s YSL RICO Case is the trial’s use of lyrics.

In court, Thug’s legal team attempted multiple times to get the lyrics dismissed. The prosecution, however, is confident that their lyrics constitute admissions of guilt. The exact lyrics that District Attorney Fani Willis wishes to utilize in the case became public online on Wednesday. HipHopDX, however, points out a number of errors in the lyrics.

Journalist Jozsef Papp of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution took to X to post the same lyrics that the prosecution had shown the court in the YSL RICO case, arguing that it demonstrated the band’s illegal history as a unit.

“I just beat a murder rap, paid my lawyer 30 for that/ Me and my slimes above the law.” – 2018’s “Just How It Is”
“Honestly truth be told YSL won’t fold/ Pick his ass off from the balcony/ YSL wipe a n***a nose.” 2014’s “Eww”
“I shot at his mommy, now he no longer mention me.” – Juice WRLD and “Bad Boy” – 2021
“I rep my life for real/ For slimes you know I kill!” – 2020’s “Take It To Trial” featuring Gunna
“Hey there, how are you? Yak Gotti here, and I got bodies on bodies.2015’s “Dream”

False Lyrics
HHDX was able to get documents that show multiple instances of errors in the lyrics and the artists who are credited with writing them. According to the records, Yak Gotti didn’t actually sing the line “knocking off your big homie b**ch” that appears in Unfoonk’s song “Mob Ties.” Nonetheless, a comparable version may be discovered on 24Heavy’s hook. Nevertheless, Yak Gotti makes no appearances at all on the song. Another mistake was found at another place in the lyrics to “Anybody.” The lyrics are actually, “Ready for war like I’m Russia/ Latest Chanel for the luggage,” not, as the docs allege, “Ready for war like I’m Russia/ I get all types of cash, I’m a general.”

Since Young Thug’s arrest, there has been controversy over the use of rap lyrics in court.
According to Cathy Russo of Law & Crime, Judge Glanville stated “that during trial the lyrics are going to be subject to relevancy and objections” if permitted, in response to the state’s request for a preliminary ruling in the case.
Brian Steel, Thug’s attorney, further contended that if song lyrics and music videos were used as evidence, the trial would go on for a whole year. Steel also brought out the fact that prominent musicians—including some with whom Thug has collaborated—have used the term “boss” to describe themselves in their songs. Glanville answered, “We’re not bringing in Cardi B, Meek Mill, Drake, or Post Malone.” We’ll update you on any developments pertaining to the YSL lawsuit.
