Rapper Young Thug is being sued for $150,000 by a concert promoter over a show he was scheduled to perform at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena in June but was later forced to cancel following his May arrest and subsequent incarceration.
The court filings, state that Thug, born Jeffery Williams, was expected to receive a total of $300,000 for a 45-minute set from promoter A-1 Concert Entertainment, half of which he was paid upfront.
The rapper was arrested in May on felony charges alleging violations of Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations RICO statute.
Fulton County prosecutors claim he’s a co-founder of a criminal street gang called Young Slime Life.
Thug was denied bond in early June, and his trial date is set for Jan. 9 next year.
