Original story below

At least 16 people, including rappers Young Thug and Gunna, will be back in court Thursday morning as part of a sweeping RICO case involving ties to Young Slime Life being pursued by Fulton County's district attorney.

Young Thug, whose legal name is Jeffery Williams, will be in court for a motion hearing as well as Sergio Kitchens, known as rapper Gunna. Judge Ural Glanville will be overseeing the proceedings.

Both entertainers are accused of committing gang-related crimes in an 80-page indictment targeting members of Young Slime Life, which allegedly has prominent membership in the metro Atlanta area. Court documents accuse Young Thug of being the founder and ringleader of YSL. More than two dozen other people face RICO charges under Georgia state law, which stands for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations.

Christian Eppinger, a man accused of shooting an Atlanta police officer earlier this year, is believed to be a member of YSL. Court documents show he will also be arraigned Thursday on a RICO charge stemming from 2013.
