Speaking on Young Thug’s arrest, his father tells Channel 2 Action News that his son is getting blamed for something he didn’t do. Jeffrey Williams Sr. said he thinks his son has unfairly been linked to numerous crimes. He said that YSL is a business and a record label, not a criminal street gang. He said no matter what, he will defend his son. “I’m gonna fight for him to the end,” Williams told the local outlet. “I’m his father. That’s what I do.” Aside from that, Young Thug’s father agrees that the violence in Atlanta has to stop: “I want any parent that has lost a child to the street violence, any parent that wants to join in marching on street violence because these are our kids. These are our kids out here. That’s been misled,” Jeffrey Williams Sr. said.
