Why is YFN Lucci in Jail?

The Everyday We Lit singer faces felony murder, assault, and racketeering charges.

The Atlanta rapper stands accused of being responsible for the shooting and death of his associate James Adams. Prosecutors claim that James was killed when YFN Lucci and his alleged gang members were engaged in a shootout with a rival gang last year.

James was reportedly in the same vehicle as the Atlanta rapper when the December 10 shooting took place. The victim was 28-years-old.

The rapper’s attorney Drew Findling has claimed that “He’s not a gang member. What he is, is an internationally recognized musical artist that is a triple Platinum winner.”

The attorney has also stated that the 30-year-old and his associates acted in self-defence.

The rapper and his legal team maintain his innocence in the murder case.

However, in May 2021, YFN Lucci was arrested after he surrendered to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office on the racketeering charges made against him.

Latest update on the singer’s court case

The latest hearing for the case was on June 17, 2021. However, YFN Lucci was not present at the court on the day. Instead, his attorney appeared before a Fulton County judge and registered a not guilty plea on his behalf. 

But, the Fulton County Jail records allege that the rapper has been involved with the Blood Gang for a long time. They are investigating his songs as well other works to find hints about this alleged connection to the gang.

The criminal cases connected to the gang reportedly include murder counts, multiple counts of aggravated assault, violation of the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act and more.

While the case is still ongoing, and an investigation is underway, the rapper remains incarcerated.
