YFN Lucci Denies Gang Ties

Lucci's lawyer Drew Findling vehemently denies the rapper has any gang ties...

The indictment says one of the Atlanta gang sub-groups of the Bloods, known by the initials YFN, was “centered around” Bennett.
“The YFN studio located on West Peachtree Street in Atlanta is a central point for the group and a notorious stronghold. YFN has continued to attract additional associates as Bennett gained notoriety,” the indictment says.
“He’s absolutely not a gang member, and this indictment — neglectfully or purposely — fails to say that Mr. Bennett is a nationally and internationally recognized musical artist," Findling said.

Along with the racketeering charge Lucci is also facing charges of violating the state’s anti-gang law, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
