The rapper is expected back in court on Friday after falling mysteriously ill
According to 11 Alive, the “ski” rapper was evaluated during his brief hospital stay and is expected to appear in court on Friday morning. The outlet reports that the trial will continue the jury selection process.
During the rapper’s hospitalization, his attorney told WSB-TV that his illness was unclear. He also stated that he doesn’t expect the rapper to appear in court that day.
The attorney added that he did not speak to Young Thug. However, he was “obviously concerned for Thugger’s well-being.”
“I know he had similar difficulties in the Cobb County Jail a few months ago, so I’m obviously concerned for his well-being,” the attorney said.
The criminal’s hospitalization comes just weeks after reports of his poor health while in detention
However, it was not surprising to hear that Thug fell ill after his lawyers issued damning reports about his health last month.
As reported by The Shadow Room Last month, the rapper’s legal team complained about his health during a bond hearing in April.
His attorneys specifically cited unhealthy foods and lack of sleep as causes of Thugger’s health problems. These issues have gotten so bad lately that the rapper “fights to pay attention to what’s going on in his case.”
“Mr. Williams suffers from sleep deprivation and is required to wake up between 3 and 4 a.m. on court days and sleep no more than five hours a night,” lawyers said to pay attention.”
Thugger was ultimately denied bail during this hearing.
The rapper has remained in custody since his arrest on charges of being a leader of the YSL street gang. The alleged gang reportedly claim to belong to the Bloods.

A brief history of the ongoing trial of Young Thug as jury selection enters its sixth month of trial
The criminal faces a 2018 charge of gang activity and a 2013 charge of conspiracy to violate RICO law.
Thug maintained his innocence throughout the trial and faced several issues from the start. This includes the arrest of a lawyer, Anastassios Manettas, representing another defendant in the case.
Jury selection in the YSL-RICO trial is now entering its sixth month of trial.
It has now been a year this month since prosecutors filed the original charges. That indictment alleged that members of Young Slime Life had committed nearly 200 criminal offenses in their capacity as street gangs.
The YSL-RICO trial is on track to break records for being the longest criminal trial in Fulton County history.
