Young Thug posted bail for his crew when they were arrested for gun possession at a party last week … and we’re told he’s footing the bill for their legal fees too.
Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ … he ponied up the bail money for all 5 of his homies — $50k for one guy who allegedly had an AK-47 and $35k each for the remaining 4 — and they were out of jail about 12 hours after their arrest.
We’re told Thug had lawyers waiting for all of them at the jail with a bail bondsman after they were busted at his Dave & Buster’s album release/birthday party in Hollywood last week.
Our sources say lawyers’ fees are $7k up front for each person … and YT is handling the ever-rising costs for everyone.
We broke the story … Young Thug was busted by cops after they allegedly found the rapper and members of his crew in possession of multiple weapons. Law enforcement sources told us a crew member ran into a police cruiser as he was leaving, prompting the vehicle search, which uncovered the weapons.
However, sources close to the rapper say everyone was inside the D&B’s and all their cars were parked inside when cops stormed in saying everyone in Thug’s crew needed to go outside because they were being arrested.
We’re also told 2 of Thug’s people had carry permits, but they were still arrested and booked for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle … just like YT and the others.
