Young Thug And Birdman Allegedly Tried To Have Lil Wayne Killed

July 16, 2015 / Posted by:

Back in April, Lil Wayne (seen above at a party a few years ago with Birdman, which is…awkward) was leaving a show in Atlanta when two white cars pulled up and opened fire on each of his two tour buses. Nobody was hurt during the shootout, but the police were still contacted. About a month later, police arrested a guy named Jimmy Winfrey for going all Bonnie and Clyde on Wayne’s buses. As it turns out, Jimmy used to be the road manager for rapper Young Thug. Fun Fact: Young Thug and Lil Wayne hate each other.

Now we know more about this situation, and it’s all kinds of daytime soap opera dramatic. According to a recently released 18-page indictment, Lil Wayne was the target and all fingers are pointing at Young Thug (real name: Jeffrey Williams) and Birdman (real name: Bryan Williams) as the orchestrators of his assassination attempt. Shortly after Jimmy Winfrey pulled up to the club Lil Wayne was performing at, he allegedly called Young Thug. Once Lil Wayne’s tour buses left the club, he allegedly called Young Thug again. That’s when another white car pulled up and the people inside allegedly helped Jimmy Winfrey shoot the shit out of the tour buses. As Jimmy fled the scene, he allegedly made a call to Birdman.

Now here’s where their plan gets sloppy. After Jimmy allegedly hung up on Birdman, he ditched his car and hauled ass to Miami. Jimmy remembered that he took a picture of his ditched car, a white Camaro, and posted it on Instagram. Jimmy tried to delete the picture. The police later found the car and figured out that it belonged to Jimmy Winfrey. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: never trust Instagram. Instagram will always rat you out.

Also very sloppy: Young Thug decided it was a good idea to release a music video for a song called “Halftime“, wherein he claims that the next time he sees “Lil Whodi” (a name Lil Wayne went by early in his career), he will “pop him in the noggin.” Not only that, he gave Jimmy Winfrey the OK to make a cameo in the video holding an assault rifle that looks a little too similar to the one he was allegedly seen with when he rolled up on Lil Wayne’s tour buses back in April. DUMMIES!

Jimmy Winfrey was slapped with a whole mess of charges relating to the alleged shooting and he’s due in court tomorrow for a bond hearing. Young Thug is currently in jail after he allegedly threatened to shoot a mall cop. He was also just charged with drugs and weapons violations after the police raided his house. No word on what’s happening with Birdman, but if I were Lil Wayne, I’d be pretty damn suspicious if I received a text from Birdman that read “Hey buddy, long time no see! Want to hang out this weekend?
