Birdman & Young Thug Plead For Gag Order In Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting Lawsuit

Birdman & Young Thug Plead For Gag Order In Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting Lawsuit

Both Birdman and Young Thug have asked a Cobb County State Court judge to issue a gag order in the lawsuit involving them with the Lil Wayne tour bus shooting in Atlanta back in 2015.

For those who are unaware, a gag order is a legal order by courts or governments that keeps information from being made public. Baby and Thugger want to silence Alvin Lewis, and stop him and his lawyer from speaking to the media about the case.

Lewis was the driver of Tunechi‘s tour bus on the night when it was shot up by Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe. He is currently suing Stunna, Thug, Peewee, Cash Money Records, and Young Money over the incident, and believes that the shooting was “gang-related.”

According to The Blast, the judge has yet to rule and the case is currently on hold. Right now, Roscoe is behind bars after being sentenced to 10 years in jail, but the lawsuit is about to reopened after new evidenced surfaced, which could expose Birdman and Young Thug for having something to do with trying to kill Weezy!

Birdman & Young Thug Could Be Charged With Trying To Kill Lil Wayne After New Evidence Surfaces In The Case

3 years ago, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe was found guilty of shooting at Lil Wayne‘s tour bus in Atlanta, Georgia and was served with a 20-year sentence (10 years in prison and 10 years on probation).

Now the Cobb County State Court is about to reopen the case after new evidence has surfaced, which could expose Birdman and Young Thug for having something to do with trying to kill Wayne. 12 minutes before the shooting took place, Thug had called Winfrey a total of 8 times and while Winfrey was in jail, Baby had called him to to say the following:

“Time for you to come out here and get this money nephew. You did everything you could do boss… it’s a eye-opener bruh, ya heard me. Strictly business, man.”

Man Who Allegedly Shot Up Lil Wayne’s Tour Bus Has Had His 20-Year Sentence Overturned

Man Who Allegedly Shot Up Lil Wayne Tour Bus Has Had His 20-Year Sentence Overturned

Back in 2015, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe pleaded guilty to the shooting at Lil Wayne‘s tour bus outside of Compound nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia on April 25th.

Peewee was served with a 20-year sentence (10 years in prison and 10 years on probation), but according to a new report by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, he has had his sentence overturned.

The good friend of T.I., Birdman and Young Thug appealed his sentence in February this year by claiming the Cobb County judge, Mary Staley Clark, “pushed” him into accepting a plea deal that he had previously declined by allegedly threatening him with a harder sentence.

Winfrey will now remain locked up behind bars while his case goes back to the Cobb County State Court to start over again!

Martin Shkreli Has To Forfeit Lil Wayne Tha Carter 5 Album To The Federal Government

At the end of 2017, prosecutors asked the court in Martin Shkreli‘s legal case to retain Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V album, which he ended up getting his hands on by buying it off the person who bought Wayne‘s Bugatti as he accidentally left it in the CD slot.

Yesterday, a judge by the name of Kiyo Matsumoto ruled that Shkreli must forfeit $7.36 million to the federal government (Weezy’s C5 album, Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album, a Pablo Picasso painting, an Engima machine from World War II, $5 million in cash in an E-Trade brokerage account, and his stake in the drug company Vyera Pharmaceuticals) as part of his upcoming criminal sentence!

What do you think this means for the fifth installment in Tunechi‘s Tha Carter album series?
