[Young Thug] is not just an artist โ€“ heโ€™s an influencer, a person I think was put here to change the people around him... [He's a] contributing citizen to this world, Kevin Liles, via witness testimony, as reported by 'New York Post'.

But their plea didn't work.

Judge Glanville called Young Thug a danger to the community and denied his bond.

I realize that Mr. Williams is presumed innocent.

However, in this particular circumstance there have been significant [claims] about Mr. Williams being a danger to the community, Judge Glanville, via 'New York Post'.

'Billboard' reports that prosecutor Don Geary told Judge Glanville that other alleged gang members have expressed fear of retaliation by Young Thug.

They have stated uniformly that Mr. Williams is dangerous, they are afraid of him, that if they cross him he will kill them and their family.

And they were very clear about that, Don Geary, prosecutor, via 'New York Post'.

A trial date is currently set for Jan.
