Famous American rappers Young Thug and Gunna brought smiles to a few families by paying bonds for thirty people, as local media WSB-TV reported.
Thirty prisoners were in Fulton County Prison in the state of Georgia. And the latter raises a sad reputation for its overpopulation, which ranks it among the worst prisons in the state. A local American channel lit up a surprised prison in Fulton County. Although it can accommodate up to 2,500 people, it currently has 400 additional prisoners.
Therefore, the situation is intolerable for the latter, who have to sleep on the floor of common areas. Especially when most men and women are arrested for minor crimes that they cannot pay for lack of adequate funds.
Young Thug and Gunna, who are from Atlanta, are also familiar with prison life because they have both been in trouble with the U.S. legal system. If this time is behind us, the two rappers have not forgotten it. This is also one of the reasons why they decided to reach about 30 people who had been closed for minor crimes.
The young Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Williams, explained that the idea came to them “in the morning when they woke up.” They decided to “go to jail with lawyers and surety companies to get as many people out as possible.” The 29-year-old rapper took the opportunity to condemn the excessive sums allocated to certain prisoners.
The rappers attended a happy and proud meeting of families and ex-prisoners who were able to return home that evening. Gunna, a 27-year-old young rapper, even admitted to “feeling crazy” and thinks he had found his new job.
While the two hip-hop stars haven’t revealed exactly how much money they spent, they point out that it’s not a one-time act. They really intend to continue at this pace and hope other artists will emulate them.
