The celebration of Young Thug’s highly-anticipated release of Slime Language and 27th birthday was supposed to be held at a booked out Dave & Buster’s Thursday (August 16) evening in Hollywood.

Before the soiree could officially kick off, Los Angeles Police Department arrested the Atlanta musician, born Jeffery Williams, on a felony gun charge, TMZ reports. He teased the private, invite-only affair on his Instagram.



As Young Thug arrived at Dave & Buster’s, police cars descended upon his Sprinter and a long line of cars that closely followed, which caused a member of his team to hit one of LAPD’s cruisers. This prompted law enforcement to perform a search.

Police found Thug and a few members of his team to have weapons in their possession.

According to reports, police officers were walking around Dave & Busters with guns in hand while asking various guests in attendance questions—some were arrested on the spot. Guests inside had a hard time making an exit because the front doors were locked and guarded by LAPD officers. Meanwhile, unaware Thug fans outside the door hoped to listen to Slime Langauge with Young Thug on his birthday.

Thugger Thugger was quickly released Friday morning (August 17) on a $35,000 bond and posted to his Instagram to let fans know he was free.

“Faster then the officers got off…,” the YSL boss captioned.


Nevertheless, Slime Language is here with 15 tracks and guest appearances from Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Baby, Gunna and Jacquees.

If you are going to have weapons, be legal and smart about it man. We have enough damn fools in the world who cause problems with guns. We don't need anymore.

You know dudes these days, hardly ever smart about things like this. Given how the media views guns and all this racist fueled garbage going around the last 3 years, only the young ones are getting in trouble. The older rappers know better.

True. I mean to be fair here, a lot of the veterans in hip hop had their fair share of getting in trouble too. 8-)

Yeah and some lucked out, some did time, some went through rehab. Other just evolved passed it all. Like Jay Z... He was never big on drugs or any of that cause he took it all in like a business.
