RAPPER Young Thug is among 28 other defendants who were charged Monday in a 56-count indictment in Georgia, reports say.

The charges in the grand jury indictment against the 28 members and associates of Young Slime Life, also known as “YSL,” include conspiring to violate the RICO Act, murder, armed robbery and participation in criminal street gang activity.
