VIDEO: Antonio “Mounk Tounk” Sledge, a suspected YSL member and co-defendant of Young Thug, has reportedly plead guilty to multiple charges

Antonio “Mounk Tounk” Sledge, a suspected YSL member and co-defendant of Young Thug, has reportedly plead guilty to multiple charges. Earlier this month, famed rapper Gunna was released from jail as Young Thug continues to sit behind bars. (Read More Here).

The seventh YSL member has now taken a plea deal in the ongoing RICO indictment. Antonio Sledge, has admitted to committing crimes and being a member of the alleged Young Slime Life street gang.

According to Law & Crime, Sledge entered a guilty plea for “conspiracy to violate the racketeering act and to being a felon in possession of a firearm.” He will now give up his Fifth Amendment right to not speak on topics that could incriminate him. This also means that he has to testify truthfully “in any trial emerging from the indictment.” 

In exchange, prosecutors will then throw out his firearm charge. They will also “recommend he spend 15 years on probation for the racketeering charge.”

Commenting under DJ Akademik’s post about Sledge’s plea, Tekashi 69 offered his thoughts on the case. The “GUMMO” rapper wrote, “3rd slide is where ITS Very CLEAR that boy got probation in exchange for his testimony. Can’t even look into the camera. I would just keep scrolling but it’s funny how no one got the same energy for black rappers who openly on video cooperate with the law.”

Sledge is the latest alleged YSL member to enter a plea in the ongoing RICO case. Lil Duke took a plea deal earlier this month, while Gunna was released from prison following his Alford plea.

Sledge is the latest alleged YSL member to enter a plea in the ongoing RICO case. Lil Duke took a plea deal earlier this month, while Gunna was released from prison following his Alford plea.

A prosecutor said in court that Sledge was a YSL associate since 2012, threatened a member of a rival gang, participated in a drive-by shooting, and knew that at least one YSL associate murdered victim Donovan Thomas Jr. on behalf of the gang. He and other members got cash money from Jeffery “Young Thug” Williams to lay low, a prosecutor said.

His brother and fellow rapper Quantavious “Unfoonk” Grier pleaded guilty last week and was sentenced to a mix of time served and probation. Grier denied informing on Williams.

“Damn people really think I told on my own brother smh,” he wrote with laughing emojis on his Instagram account. “Show me in my paperwork I told on anybody lol, Im not even fenna entertain any of it, peace and blessings.”

As part of the deal, Grier cannot have contact with his brother until the end of the case. “If called by any party in this case, you will testify truthfully, but reserve your right to assert your 5th amendment privilege against self-incrimination,” documents state.

Martinez “Lil Duke” Arnold, Wunnie “Slimelife Shawty” Lee, Antonio “Obama” Sumlin, and alleged YSL co-founder Walter Murphy have also pleaded guilty.

Sergio “Gunna” Kitchens took a plea deal — known as an Alford plea — earlier this month. By doing an Alford plea, Kitchens maintains his innocence while conceding to punishment. In a statement, he maintained that he did not consider YSL a gang, but “a group of people from metro Atlanta who had common interests and artistic aspirations.”

Gunna most notably struck a plea deal earlier this month, leading to his release on a time-served, suspended sentence after being behind bars since May. His attorney Steve Sadow later attempted to dispel snitching allegations tied to the rapper, urging the public to “stop spreading lies.”

The number of defendants has been reduced to 21. The trial is set to begin on Jan. 9, 2023, following jury selection on Jan. 5.
