Young Thug was taken to the hospital while he was still in jail before his YSL RICO trial hearing. WSB-TV, an Atlanta news station, says that Young Thug missed his court meeting on Thursday, May 11, because he was taken to the hospital with an unknown illness. Young Thug’s lawyer, Brian Steel, said something about the rapper’s health.
“I know he’s had some difficulty of a similar sort at the Cobb County jail a few months ago, and so I’m obviously concerned about his wellbeing,” Steel told the newspaper.

At a previous bond meeting in April, Young Thug’s lawyers were worried that he was getting too tired.
“Mr. Williams is sleep deprived, mandated to wake up on court days between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. and not having more than five hours of sleep per night,” lawyers said. “By the end of the week, Mr. Williams is fighting to pay attention to the goings on in his case.”
Thug’s lawyers also said that the rapper eats mostly chocolate and chips in jail because he has no other choices. Thugger supposedly hasn’t had much access to fresh air or sunlight and has been kept in a very small jail cell since he was arrested on RICO charges in May of 2022.
In January, Young Thug was seen in court with his head down, looking like he was sleeping during a hearing. Young Thug’s lawyer has been asked for a response by XXL.
