Young Thug is now facing seven more felony charges.

The new charges, according to jail records, including possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of firearm during commission of a felony.

The new charges come after Young Thug, whose was born is Jeffrey Williams, was among 28 individuals included in a 56-count grand jury indictment on Monday. The counts include conspiracy to violate the RICO Act, murder, armed robbery, and participation in criminal street gang activity. All of the people named in the indictment are members and associates of Young Slime Life, or “YSL,” which is described in the indictment as “a criminal street gang that started in late 2012” in Atlanta and which “claims affiliation with the national Bloods gang.”

In a statement to ABC News Monday night, Williams’ attorney, Brian Steel, said Williams “has committed no violation of law, whatsoever. We will fight this case ethically, legally and zealously. Mr. Williams will be cleared.”
