Lil Wayne’s tour bus was allegedly shot up by a member of Young Thug’s crew.
An arrest warrant was issued for Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, on May 21. Multiple sources in Atlanta told TMZ that Winfrey has been Young Thug’s road manager. Winfrey was charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon, and criminal gang activity.
After Wayne performed at Compound nightclub in Atlanta last month, shots were fired at his tour bus. The rapper and a few other members of Young Money including Lil Twist and Hood were on board at the time of the shooting, but no one was injured.
These latest developments come on the heels of a public feud between Thug and Wayne. It stems from Thug wanting to title his mixtape Carter 6. He eventually changed it to Barter 6 when he was threatened with a lawsuit by Weezy.
Then Wayne blasted Thug during a club appearance in April. “Before I go any further, I want ya’ll to do me a favor and stop listening to some ni**as that pose naked on their motherfuckin’ album cover,” he said.
Thug responded in an Instagram video, “I understand that Lil Wayne is frustrated about his career and I feel him on that, but this is my idol,” he said. “I won’t ever in my life swap words with him or beef with him about nothing. This is a person that I look up to. Ha ha.”
Thug recently announced he still wants to name his album the Carter 6.
