The word on the Internet street is a YSL member has flipped and will be helping the government with their RICO case against Young Thug, Gunna, and 26 other YSLs.
The name of the snitch has been circulating on social media.
Both Fulton County DA Fani Willis and Young Thug's lawyer Brian Steele decried the leak yesterday.

"YSL enthusiasts and/or actual gang members are threatening someone they believe is cooperating with the State," Willis told Atlanta TV station WSB-TV. "And not only that person, but their very small children. We are going to have to do things to make sure that the witnesses are safe," she added. "We need people to understand that they can cooperate, they can do the right thing, and the State will be here to protect them."
Steele said the threats aren't helping Young Thug's case.
"This is putting people at risk and it's poisoning the jury pool," Steel told WSB-TV. "Please stop immediately. Whomever is placing items of discovery online is not doing anybody a favor. It is totally inappropriate to try this case in social media. This will be tried fairly and justly in Fulton County Superior Court."
Young Thug is facing life in prison.
