Opening statements for American rapper Young Thug’s trial is set to begin on Monday accused of leading a violent street gang in the Atlanta area affiliated with the national Bloods gang.

Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffery Williams, was charged alongside more than two dozen other people under the state’s expansive Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act – known as RICO.

Most of the defendants took plea deals and others were dropped from the case because of representation issues. But Young Thug and six other defendants are still facing trial.

The trial was called to order Monday morning but quickly went into recess after Fulton County Superior Court Judge Ural Glanville announced one juror could not be located.

Prosecutors say Young Thug is the co-founder of a criminal street gang – Young Slime Life – that has carried out violent acts dating back a decade.

Among the more serious accusations against him is that in 2015 he rented a car that was used in the murder of a rival gang member.

The 32-year-old rapper is one of the music industry’s most innovative and influential hip-hop artists. His tracks have landed him at the top of the charts multiple times, and he’s collaborated with artists including Camila Cabello in “Havana,” Travis Scott, and Drake.

Defense attorney Brian Steel has said Young Thug is innocent of all counts and has previously told CNN he “committed no crime whatsoever.”
