Young Thug‘s lawyer has hit out at the rapper’s “dungeon like” prison conditions in an emergency filing.Brian Steel said the rapper, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, was being held in “solitary confinement” in a “windowless cement compartment with only a bed and a toilet and an overhead light which remains on 24 hours per day,” according to a motion filed today (May 13) (via Rolling Stone).He also alleged that his client can’t sleep, rest, or meditate due to the disorienting environment and has “no opportunity to exercise, shower or have human contact.”“Mr.

Williams, an innocent man, who is wholly isolated from the world, must obtain immediate relief,” Steel added.It comes after Williams was arrested on gang-related charges earlier this week.He is one of 28 people charged in an indictment that focuses on the alleged street gang YSL (“Young Slime Life”), believed to have formed in Atlanta in 2012.

Thug is suspected of being one of three of the alleged gang’s founding members, while rapper Gunna is also among those listed in the indictment, who has since been arrested.Gunna’s lawyers have since responded saying his indictment is also “intensely problematic” and declared that he was “innocent”.Thug has since been hit with seven further charges.
