(AllHipHop News) The ongoing feud between Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Lil Wayne took an unexpected turn this summer when reports claimed Birdman and Young Thug were involved in a RICO conspiracy to kill Wayne. According to TMZ, the Cash Money Records head is denying being part of any plot to harm his artist.
An indictment involving the case of Jimmy “PeeWee Roscoe” Winfrey suggested the alleged shooter pulled off the crime in conjunction with Birdman and Thug. Sources tell TMZ Birdman relayed to Wayne he had nothing to do with the shooting and is working to find out exactly what happened that night in Atlanta.
Police documents state Winfrey called Birdman’s phone soon after he allegedly fired gunshots at the bus. Someone in the Cash Money camp is saying both phones were in Birdman’s name, but they are simply company phones that several Cash Money associates use.
The source adds that the call listed in the indictment was supposedly from a member of Wayne’s team letting Birdman know Winfrey had been harassing Wayne at a club earlier that night. Winfrey was connected to Birdman by being Young Thug’s road manager. All three men are also accused of being members of the Bloods gang.
Winfrey has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault, making terroristic threats and acts, criminal damage, possession of a firearm by a felon, criminal gang activity, reckless conduct, and discharging a weapon near the street. He was denied bond. Neither Birdman nor Thug have been charged with any crime involving the tour bus shooting case.
