Young Thug Consults Michael Phelps For Advice On Swimming 100 Miles Offshore
Young Thug joked about trying to escape from prison when he tweeted on Wednesday asking 23-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps for tips on how to swim back to land from 100 miles out to sea. In connection with the most recent 56-count RICO indictment against his Young Slime Life record company, Thug is currently in custody awaiting trial on a number of crimes.
“I’m talking with my roommate and we’re wondering if you could swim 100 miles from the middle of the ocean back to shore,” Thug mentioned Michael Phelps in a tweet.
“U tryna escape,” In reaction to the post, one fan wrote.
Yet another joked: “Oh nah they moved him to Alcatraz.”
Phelps has not yet replied to the tweet.
It was revealed earlier this month that Thug’s trial date would be January 9, 2023. The prosecution’s use of rap lyrics will be a very contentious aspect of the trial.
At a news conference, Fulton County District Attorney Fanni Willis recently defended the use of music in court, saying, “If you decide to admit your crimes over a beat, I’m gon’ use it… People can continue to be angry about it, [but] I have some legal advice: Don’t confess to crimes on rap lyrics if you do not want them used — or, at least, get out of my county.”
