As Young Thug remains in prison facing murder charges, he was hit was a new $6 million lawsuit for allegedly failing to fulfill a concert contract he signed five years ago.

The Atlanta rapper, born Jeffery William, is being sued for $6 million by concert promoters AEG, who claim he failed to honor an agreement made in 2017, according to The Source.

AEG alleges that Williams accepted a $5 million advance for exclusive rights to his shows and breached the contract. A trial is scheduled to start on October 24, 2023.

Young Thug has been in custody since May on a 56-count RICO indictment that includes charges of murder, robbery, witness intimidation and racketeering. That trial is slated to begin on January 9, 2023.

As previously reported, Young Thug was hit with a separate lawsuit earlier this month for failing to perform a June 18 concert due to his current incarceration.

A-1 Concert Entertainment claims he accepted $150,000 upfront, and the company is suing him for that amount. A rep from Thug’s YSL Touring company says the money will be reimbursed.
