Indictment alleges Birdman, Young Thug involved in conspiracy to kill Lil Wayne

Birdman, Young Thug Allegedly Involved in Conspiracy Plot to Kill Lil Wayne

The Lil Wayne drama just keeps on coming.

An indictment reportedly filed last month in Cobb County, Georgia, alleges that Cash Money Records' Birdman (aka Bryan Williams) and Young Thug (aka Jeffery Lamar Williams) were involved in a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) conspiracy to kill Lil Wayne (aka Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.). This according to reports filed by Atlanta's WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News and the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The indictment alleges that all three men are involved in the Bloods gang, and that the gang is tied to an April shooting involving Wayne's tour bus. 25-year-old PeeWee Roscoe (aka Jimmy Carlton Winfrey) was arrested in connection with the incident.

"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 reads. "[That's when] 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."

Thankfully, no one was injured in the shooting.

Wayne has been at odds with Birdman and the label he co-founded in recent months, after the rapper claimed that label heads refused to release his long-awaited new album, Tha Carter V.

Coincidentally, reports also recently surfaced that Birdman is suing Jay Z's TIDAL for $50 million, after Weezy's FWA (short for Free Weezy Album) began streaming on the service earlier this month.

In the new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Cash Money calls the move "a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service."

Wayne's Tha Carter V, a separate record that remains at the heart of the alleged conspiracy, has still not been released.
