The saga in recent months between Lil’ Wayne, Birdman and Young Thug has taken another puzzling turn. According to a report, Birdman and his former Rich Gang protégé plotted to murder Lil’ Wayne.

On Wednesday night, Atlanta WSB-TV’s Mike Petchenik reported that in an indictment, Birdman and Young Thug conspired to kill Lil’ Wayne, which lead to shooter Jimmy Carlton Winfrey carrying out Thug’s order in that tour bus shooting in April.

The indictment also cites Young Thug’s “Halftime” music video, where Winfrey, a close associate of the rapper, is seen brandishing an assault rifle (see the photo below). In that shooting back in April, Lil’ Wayne’s tour bus was hit with gunfire following a show at Club Compound. Fortunately, no one was injured in the shooting, and Jimmy Carlton Winfrey was charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon, and criminal gang activity.

Winfrey was known as Thug’s former manager and remained a close associate. The new development comes just hour after Young Thug was arrested for allegedly threatening a mall security guard.

Neither Birdman or Young Thug have been arrested in connection with the report from this indictment. Petchenik notes charges and jail time could soon follow due to the serious allegations.
