American rapper and Cash Money co-founder, Bryan Christopher Williams, known by his stage name Birdman, could be charged as co-conspirators in the 2015 shooting of a Lil Wayne tour bus.
An excerpted audio of a phone call between Birdman and the accused shooter Jimmy “PeeWee Roscoe” Winfrey has leaked.
During the phone call, Birdman can be heard saying;
“It’s time for you to come out here and get your money, man . . . You done did everything you could do… It’s an eye-opener, bruh. Strictly business, man.”
As local Atlanta outlet WSB-TV previously reported, the Cobb County District Attorney’s office announced that a decision regarding possible charges against Birdman and Thugger would be made within the next “couple of weeks.”
At the time of the shooting’s initial reports, the Atlanta Police Department claimed Winfrey was driving a white sports car that pulled up beside Wayne’s buses, then opened fire “with a .40 caliber handgun and a 9mm handgun.”
Winfrey initially pleaded guilty to six of the 27 counts he faced in relation to the shooting and was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years of probation in 2015.
Young Thug’s former manager then appealed his sentence, claiming he was pressured or coerced into a guilty plea and had his conviction overturned.
