Earlier this year, the rapper also had drug charges dismissed.

The case was over a September 2017 incident where he was pulled over for a window tint violation but cops supposedly smelled marijuana. They searched the car and then found other drugs and arrested Thug.

A grand jury indicted the rapper on eight felony charges including possession and intent to distribute meth, weed and hydrocodone along with possession of amphetamine, Alparzolam, codeine and possession of a firearm.

Back in March, a Georgia judge sided with Thug and ordered all evidence cops had to be suppressed. The judge agreed the police stop was improper and therefore the evidence couldn’t be used.

The judge wrote, “The prosecution failed to present credible evidence that this vehicle was violating the law when it was stopped by law enforcement," the order states, "and thus, all evidence that flowed directly and indirectly from this illegal stop and seizure must be suppressed, including, but not limited to, all statements, firearms and supposed drugs.”

Prosecutors filed an appeal of the decision which is currently pending.
