Birdman and Young Thug

Young Thug and Lil Wayne's feud reached a tipping point back in April, when Weezy's bus was shot up in Atlanta. There were rumblings after that said it was gang-related and that the shooter was actually linked to Thugger.

Now, according to Mike Petchenik of Atlanta's WSB-TV, an indictment has surfaced that points to Thugger and Birdman being involved in a conspiracy with a third individual to kill Lil Wayne.

The alleged suspect, Jimmy Winfrey, who police say was the triggerman, was arrested in early June.

While Birdman and Thug aren't charged in the indictment, they're both named as working with Winfrey, reports Petchenik. Furthermore, the indictment alleges that Winfrey "carried out" the shooting on behalf of Young Thug.

Prosecutors are also looking into the trio's "Blood street gang" affiliation and also plan to use Young Thug's video for "Halftime" as evidence in the forthcoming legal case.

The news is the latest in the feud between the three artists. Earlier in the week, Birdman was in the news for reportedly throwing a drink at Wayne during a performance at a Miami nightclub over the weekend.
