BROOKHAVEN, GA — Atlanta rapper Young Thug just got slapped with eight felonies for a drug and gun arrest in Brookhaven last year.

The indictment includes intent to distribute and having a gun while committing a felony.

The rapper, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, also has trouble in Hollywood. Police arrested him for having a concealed gun in a vehicle while celebrating his birthday and new album last month.
