Young Thug, known for an unconventional delivery and collaborations with big names like Gucci Mane, told the judge he acknowledged his mistakes and wanted to get home to his children. The 27-year-old has six kids ages 4 to 11.
“I just want to be home with my family and be right,” he said. “This is real life ... I’ve got a son 10, 11 years old ... They look up to me.”
He said he hated the idea of his children seeing him in and out of jail. He wanted to set a good example.
“I’m sorry, and I won’t disobey again,” he told the judge.
Adams agreed to the release.
“Today,” he said, “you get the benefit” of the doubt.
Young Thug was indicted on multiple drug charges in connection with the September 2017 arrest on Clairmont Road. He is accused of possessing methamphetamine, hydrocodone and marijuana with the intent to distribute, as well as possession of amphetamine, a generic form of Xanax and codeine. He is also charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
