Young Thug is facing legal consequences after he was forced to cancel a concert due to his current incarceration.

As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Thugger was scheduled to perform at an Atlanta show hosted by A-1 Concert Entertainment on June 18 and was given a portion of his payment — $150,000 — upfront. He was to receive the other half after his 45-minute set, which he was, unfortunately, unable to do as he is behind bars. 

As previously reported, Thug was arrested in May and accused of violating Georgia’s RICO Act. He’s since been hit with additional charges, and his requests for bond have consistently been denied.

A-1 Concert Entertainment is suing the rapper for $150,000 in damages — the same amount used to secure his performance. A rep from Thug’s YSL Touring company says the money will be reimbursed.
