The rapper from Atlanta is still behind bars as he waits for his state racketeering charges trial.

With his first album since Punk in October 2021, Young Thug is back. Drake, Future, 21 Savage, Lil Gotit, Yak Gotti, Travis Scott, Bslime, and Nate Ruess all appear on the new album, Business Is Business. The executive producer of the album is Metro Boomin. Below, you can hear Young Thug’s newest album.

Not shortly after his longtime partner Gunna released his own new album, A Gift & a Curse, Young Thug cryptically hinted Business Is Business with a QR code that he uploaded. Gunna, Metro Boomin, Drake, Chance the Rapper, Wheezy, G Herbo, Coi Leray, Lil Durk, 21 Savage, Southside, and more artists posted the teaser online.



Young Thug’s debut album, Business Is Business, was released after he, Gunna, Deamonte “Yak Gotti” Kendrick, and other Young Stoner Life (YSL) members were detained in Georgia on gang-related allegations. Young Thug was accused of participating in illegal street gang activities and conspiring to break Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act in a grand jury indictment. In addition, charges for allegedly possessing narcotics and firearms were brought against him. The accusations against Young Thug have been met with a plea of not guilty.


While Young Thug remains imprisoned and has repeatedly been denied bond, Gunna was freed from jail after entering a plea of guilty to one count of conspiring to violate the Georgia RICO Act, and a judge once insisted that the rapper is “a danger to the community.” While Young Thug awaits trial, a number of his co-defendants have also had their cases resolved.

28 YSL members and affiliates were mentioned in the original indictment. Gunna, Unfoonk (Young Thug’s brother), Lil Duke, Slimelife Shawty, Trontavious “Tick” Stephens, Antonio “Mounk Tounk” Sledge, Walter Murphy, and Antonio “Obama” Sumlin are some of the guys who have entered guilty pleas. Derontae “Bee” Bebee and Tenquarius “Nard” Mender, meantime, turned down plea agreements. Yak Gotti is still in jail as well after being rejected for bond.

Jury selection began in January, and the presiding judge has projected that selection could continue through September. As of now, no jurors have been seated and there is still not a firm date for Young Thug to stand trial.

Despite his extensive time in jail, Young Thug has been featured on several new songs, including Yeat’s “My Wrist,” Killer Mike’s “Run,” Calvin Harris’ “Potion,” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Royal Flush.” He was also nominated for two 2023 Grammy Awards for his appearance on Gunna’s “Pushin P”: Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.
