Despite having his name removed from the witness list in early April, Lil Wayne may be asked to testify in Young Thug‘s ongoing RICO trial.

AllHipHop reports that Fulton County prosecutors were unable to introduce a number of videos of Lil Wayne as evidence after Judge Ural Glanville stated that he will only allow it if the rapper himself testified. “It seems like you all are trying really hard not to call [Lil Wayne] and that’s your choice,” Judge Glanville told Chief Deputy DA Adriane Love, who persistently argued for the videos. “If you don’t call him, my ruling will stand on these particular exhibits that you are trying to introduce.”

The videos saw Lil Wayne talk about Thugger, and is connected to a 2015 incident where Jimmy Winfrey, also known as Thug’s affiliate PeeWee Roscoe, was accused of shooting Weezy’s tour bus while in Georgia. He plead guilty to six of the 27 charges and was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years of probation, but had his conviction overturned in 2018.

While Wayne is not being called to testify just yet, his tour bus driver Alvin Lewis will likely take the stand on May 6. In 2016, he sued Thug, Birdman and Roscoe over the shooting.
