Lil Wayne’s Tour Bus Shooting May Be Tied to Young Thug
An April shooting of Lil Wayne's tour bus may be tied to Young Thug. TMZ is reporting that the police have a warrant for Jimmy Carlton Winfrey. The suspect was looking to elevate his status as a Blood by, "committing a high profile shooting of a rival rap artist." Sources have also told TMZ that Winfrey has acted as Thugger's road manager. Authorities got a warrant for Winfrey on May 21 and faces charges of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon and criminal gang activity. He has previously been arrested for drug possession in Florida.
During the early morning of April 26, Wayne's tour bus was shot at as the rapper and his entourage were leaving an Atlanta club. Reports say that Wayne had gotten into a heated exchange with hecklers in the audience during his performance at the club and the concertgoers were eventually booted from the club. Following the show, Weezy left the club with extra security. Fortunately, no one was injured in the shooting On the same night as Wayne's performance in Atlanta, Young Thug was performing songs from Barter 6 at a show in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which may provide a hole in the "Clifton as Thug's road manager" report.
