Young Thug sues apartment building for allegedly handing over $1million worth of songs to a stranger

Young Thug has filed a lawsuit against an apartment building in Atlanta that handed over $1million worth of his songs to a stranger.

Digital Music News has seen the paperwork which claims the incident took place on November 1st, 2020. Apparently, Thug left a Louis Vuitton bag by his Lamborghini. A resident in The Trace building then handed it to a staff member after reporting it to the concierge.

Allegedly, the employee then put the bag in “a secure/locked location” and even left a note instructing other employees to contact her before releasing it. However, a colleague apparently ignored the instruction and handed the bag over to a stranger who had nothing to do with Thug.

While the bag contained $40,000 in cash, it also held a diamond-encrusted watch valued around $57,000 and a diamond chain worth $37,000. However, the worst part is the loss of a hard drive with around 200 unreleased songs on it, which Thug has claimed is valued at $1million (£728,000).

The rapper is suing The Trace for damages, negligence, and failure to train its employees. His representative stated, the employees “undertook a duty to safeguard and return [Thug’s] property” after holding the lost bag. Additionally, they claim the staff were “unreasonable and stubbornly litigious”.

More as this story continues to develop.
