Drake released his new album Honestly, Nevermind, which featured a nod to the ongoing RICO investigation of Young Thug.

“Hey yo Eric, bring them girls to the stage, ’cause/Somebody’s getting paid and/Free Big Slime out the cage,” the Toronto rapper starts his second verse on his new track, “Sticky.”

Thug has been held at Cobb County jail in Georgia since May 9, amidst a RICO case involving 28 YSL affiliates in a 56-count indictment. The term “Big Slime” has been used in many songs by different rappers as a call for the liberation of the man who created the Slime Season mixtape series.

The series includes songs like “Slime S–t” and “10,000 Slimes,” and the 2020 Chris Brown collab mixtape Slime & B. The mentioned, “Big Slimes” also includes Gunna, who is also locked up for the same RICO case.
