Atlanta, GA – YFN Lucci is reportedly behind bars again at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia after turning himself in on Thursday (May 10).

According to WSB-TV, the 30-year-old rapper is currently being held in the institution’s maximum security unit.

Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat said Lucci is housed at the facility in a way that keeps both him and the staff safe, explaining, “We do treat charges more so than the celebrity status and he is certainly in our maximum security area.”

Lucci was indicted along with 12 others on charges of racketeering, and a warrant was issued for his arrest earlier this month.

Lucci was named in a 75-page, 105-count racketeering indictment focused on factions within the Bloods gang.

“This indictment is unprecedented. Period. In Georgia,” Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said. “There’s been a huge spike in violent crime. I made a commitment to bring the best and the brightest minds here, many of which you see sitting here right now so that we could deal with this issue of this violent crime.”

YFN Lucci’s attorney Drew Findling said, “He’s not a gang member. What he is is an internationally recognized musical artist that is a triple platinum winner, that has performed all over the United States and all over the world.”

Lucci is already facing an unrelated murder charge in connection to the shooting death of 28-year-old James Adams last December.

The platinum-selling artist surrendered to Atlanta police in January after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He’s charged with felony murder, aggravated assault, participation in criminal street gang activity and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
