Roommates, I know y’all remember Lil Wayne’s tour bus shooting? Since it happened back in 2015 in Atlanta, Ga, there have been many developments in the case. The most recent being #Birdman and Young Thug’s plea for a gag order against Alvin Lewis.
Let’s play catch up. Alvin Lewis, the driver of the bus, sued Birdman, Thug, and PeeWee Roscoe. PeeWee was hit with ten years behind bars as well as ten years probation following his guilty plea to six of the 27 counts he faced in connection to the shooting. He later appealed the sentence. Lil’ Wayne was not injured during the incident.
Now, Birdman and Young Thug have asked the judge to issue a gag order against Alvin — preventing him and his lawyer from discussing the case with anyone — including the media.
Alvin initially sued Young Thug, Birdman, and PeeWee Roscoe, Young Thug’s manager for civil assault and battery, violation of state and federal racketeering offenses, causing emotional distress and more.
Lewis claimed that Wayne’s tour bus was shot up after the rapper’s crew and PeeWee Roscoe’s clique allegedly had an altercation after a concert. Although Roscow was sentenced to 10 years behind bars, Lewis alleged that Roscoe made a few calls to both Thug and Birdman before and after the shooting.
“He has emotional injuries including post-traumatic stress and is not doing well,” his lawyer Jeffrey Gewirtz said back in 2016. He was requesting to be compensated for his “pain, anguish, suffering, discomfort, medical expenses” and lost wages.
Both Birdman and Young Thug went under criminal investigation for the case — ironically the same day Weezy’s Carter V album was finally released.
What are your thoughts on the situation with this newly surfaced information, Roommates?! Stay tuned for new developments and updates!
