The 26-year-old musician, whose real name is Quantavious Thomas, will plead not guilty to those charges as well as gang-related and aggravated assault charges from 2017, said his attorney, Scott Smith. Young Nudy is known for his “SlimeBall” mixtapes, and his collaborations with fellow musicians Offset and Lil Yachty.
Young Nudy was leaving The Atrium Event Center on Memorial Drive in Stone Mountain on Feb. 3 at about 3 a.m. when he was arrested by DeKalb police, who were accompanied by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Also taken into custody was fellow rapper 21 Savage, who is reportedly his cousin. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained 21 Savage, whose real name is She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, saying he is a citizen of the United Kingdom who overstayed his visa. 21 Savage was released on bond from a federal immigration detention center in South Georgia last week.
