The King of the South is making demands. Rap star T.I. is pouring out his support for jailed hip-hop affiliate Young Thug following a drug violation arrest.

Tip hit up Instagram Tuesday (November 13) to give Thugger a look and show his desire to have him freed.

Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill recently bashed the criminal system for ruthlessly throwing Thug behind bars.

A few days ago, buzz developed about Thug getting placed in jail for a failed drug test.

Young Thug (born: Jeffery Lamar Williams) has had his bond revoked and has been booked in Georgia’s DeKalb County Jail on felony drug and gun charges, the Blast reports and Pitchfork can confirm. According to court records viewed by Pitchfork, Williams failed a drug test prior to a scheduled arraignment this morning (November 8). The arraignment was tied to a September 2017 arrest, during which the rapper was cited for possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, and hydrocodone with intent to distribute. He was also found with codeine (two counts), a firearm, alprazolam (aka Xanax), and an amphetamine. (Pitchfork)

Prior to landing in handcuffs, Thug was expected to appear in court for a 2017 arrest case.

He was due in court today for an arraignment hearing for the charges, but was arrested on Wednesday morning for the failed drug test. The judge revoked his probation today. He was booked in Georgia’s DeKalb County Jail. (Stereogum)
