[E-News] Leaked phone call reveals Yung Thug called gunman 8 times in minutes leading up to Lil Wayne bus shooting

A leaked phone conversation between rap mogul Bryan “Birdman” Williams and shooter Jimmy “Peewee Roscoe” Winfrey may hold the key to a conspiracy case implicating Birdman and rapper Yung Thug in the drive-by shooting of Lil Wayne’s tour bus outside Atlanta in 2015.


The Cobb County District Attorney’s office is considering whether to charge Birdman and rapper Yung Thug as co-conspirators in the drive-by shooting. The decision to charge the two men will be made in the next couple of weeks.


In a leaked phone call between Birdman and Winfrey, Birdman is heard telling Winfrey:

It’s time for you to come and get this money, man. You done did everything you could do, boss. It’s an eye opener, bruh. Strictly business, man.

Phone records obtained by the Cobb County DA’s office reveals Yung Thug, real name Jeffrey Lamar Williams, called Winfrey 8 times in the minutes leading up to the bus shooting.


Winfrey, driving a white sports car, pulled alongside Wayne’s tour bus on a highway and opened fire with a .40 caliber handgun. The bus was sprayed with gunfire, but no one on the bus was hurt. Winfrey was Yung Thug’s tour manager at the time of the shooting.
