Young Thug and Gunna donated money for a good cause over the weekend, posting bonds for 30 inmates at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, resulting in their reunion with their families. The two Atlanta rappers said most of the men and women were being held on minor offenses but couldn’t get out because they didn’t have enough money.
Said Thug: “This is where we are from. We just woke up and went to the jail with the lawyer and you know DA’s and the prosecutors, you know, the bonding companies and just got as many people as we can out.” Thug did not reveal how much money they spent in total, saying, “If they did the crime, then they can do the time, then it’s all right. But it’s like you’re giving them a bond higher than what they stole.” Added Gunna, “You never know what somebody been through. There was people sitting out three or four years and couldn’t get out on a bond.”
Footage of the inmates reuniting with their families will be featured in an upcoming music video from the YSL label who recently put out their new compilation album, Slime Language 2.
