Rapper YFN Lucci Headed To Trial In May

A date has been set for the trial of rapper YFN Lucci, who's currently in custody in Atlanta's Fulton County Jail in Atlanta.

Lucci's trial will begin on May 12, 2022.

The rapper and 11 others turned themselves in after being named in a 105-count indictment targeting the Bloods gang. Lucci had been freed from weeks before his May arrest after posting bond in a separate murder case.


Drew Findling, Bennett's attorney, denied the rapper is a member of the gang. "He's not guilty of all charges," Findling said.

Court documents say the racketeering case filed April 30 involves, among other things, the felony murder of James Adams, in which Lucci is accused along with two others. Prosecutors claim Lucci and three gang members traveled to a rival gang area and that Lucci was driving the car when Adams and a front-seat passenger fired multiple shots. Adams was hit by return fire and was put out of the vehicle a short distance away.
