NEWS: Young Thug and Birdman Plotted To Kill Lil Wayne, Indictment Alleges! [KingpinTV.net]

Two rappers and a member of their entourage have been implicated in a plot to murder another MC over a business dispute.

In April, Lil Wayne was traveling  through Georgia when his tour bus was attacked by people wielding guns in a white Chevy Camaro. No one was injured.  According to an indictment obtained by Atlanta’s Channel 2 Action News, prosecutors now claim that Jimmy Winfrey, 25 — better known as PeeWee Roscoe — was behind the wheel of the Camaro.

“After Atlanta Police  discontinued their escort, [Winfrey] and fellow Blood Gang members entered Interstate 285 from Atlanta Road in Cobb County in pursuit of the buses occupied by [Lil Wayne’s] group,” the indictment alleges. “The white sports car pulled beside the buses, shots were then fired into the buses from the sports car with a .40 caliber handgun and a 9mm handgun.”

Winfrey was arrested on June 2, as the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported. The charges: aggravated assault, terroristic threats and acts, criminal damage, possession of a firearm by a felon, criminal gang activity, reckless conduct and discharging a weapon near the street. Winfrey was held without bond.

Mentioned in the indictment were two performers: Jeffery Lamar Williams, 22, better known as Young Thug, and Bryan Williams, a.k.a. Birdman. As Channel 2 explained, Lil Wayne and Birdman, who co-founded a record label, were embroiled in a legal dispute over the release of a Lil Wayne record; Young Thug took Birdman’s side, according to the indictment.

“The indictment alleges that Young Thug made a threat against Lil Wayne and tour bus shooting suspect Jimmy Winfrey carried out that threat,” Channel 2 reported.

All men mentioned in the indictment — including Lil Wayne — are allegedly members of the notorious Bloods gang.

Young Thug and Birdman were not charged relating to the tour bus attack. However, in a separate incident, Young Thug was arrested Wednesday in Georgia after allegedly threatening a mall security guard earlier this month.
“[Young Thug] was wanted on an outstanding warrant charging him with terroristic threats stemming from an incident that occurred with the jurisdiction of the Dunwoody police,” Jim Joyner, spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, said in a press release, as Channel 2 reported.

Young Thug “threatened to shoot [a security guard] in the face,” according to an arrest warrant.
