Marietta, GA – As Cobb County prosectors decide whether to press charges on Birdman and Young Thug for their involvement in the 2015 Lil Wayne tour bus shooting, some potentially damning evidence has surfaced.
Atlanta’s WSB-TV obtained a new civil court filing showing Thug made eight calls to alleged shooter PeeWee Roscoe (real name Jimmy Winfrey) in the 12 minutes before the incident. Audio of a phone call between the Cash Money CEO and Roscoe has also leaked.
“It’s time for you to come out here and get your money, man,” Birdman says in the audio clip. “You done did everything you could do, boss. It’s an eye-opener, bruh. Strictly business, man.”
Birdman originally denied any involvement in the shooting but if prosecutors have their way, he and Thugger could be charged as co-conspirators.
Roscoe pleaded guilty to the crime in November 2015 and was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but his conviction was eventually overturned.
Prosecutors are expected to make a decision on the charges against Birdman and Thug in the next two weeks.
