The rapper's legal troubles continue

Young Thug was arrested over the weekend on drug-related charges.

According to TMZ the rapper was hit with a charge for marijuana possession and another for having overly tinted windows. The rapper was booked by the Brookhaven Police Department. He is scheduled to appear in court on September 27.

Young Thug has faced quite a bit of legal trouble this year, including other arrests involving his window tints. However, nothing’s stuck to the rapper behind last year’s impressive album Jeffery and this year’s collection of genre experiments Thugger Girls. A 2015 raid seemed to spell trouble for the rapper, as police found all manner of illegal weapons and drugs in his Sandy Springs home during the search.

However, the case fell apart because of the authorities own mistakes. Turns out they hadn’t acquired a proper search warrant to bust into Thugga’s home and the case was thrown out. Several other incidents have failed to play out into larger charges. While he was charged with making terroristic threats toward a security guard and allegedly slapping a woman outside of an Atlanta nightclub, both cases fell apart for lack of evidence.
