Young Thug is facing 20 years to life behind bars after being arrested in a massive gang activity bust.  

According to TMZ, federal agents tore Thug's house apart and dug up his backyard before taking him into custody on felony charges and alleged participation in a "criminal street gang".

The Atlanta-based rapper is just one of 28 people involved in a larger grand jury indictment which includes a bunch of his associates and members of his label, YSL (Young Slime Life/Young Stoner Life/You Slatt Life). 

One of those named is fellow rapper Gunna, who is facing charges due to "wearing a 'YSL' pendant and a 'Slatt' pendant" in a music video. 

Some of the other YSL members are facing charges that range from armed robbery, aggrevated assault and drugs charges through to murder. Thug is accused of renting a car that was later involved with the 2015 homicide. 

Prosecutors are claiming that YSL, which was started in 2012,  is a "criminal street gang" and is connected with the Bloods.  

Meanwhile, YT's defense attorney has come out and said that Thugger has "committed no crime whatsoever".
