ATLANTA, GA-When you think of the gangster life, you might think gold chains, baggy pants and that rap life, but what happens when killer raps turn killer?

Rapper Young Thug's tour manager Jimmy Carlton Winfrey has been named in a 30-count indictment, accused of trying to kill rapper and fellow Blood gang member Lil Wayne.

It all went down in Atlanta after Carlton, seen in Young Thugs “Halftime” video, opened fire on Wayne's tour buses.

Cops say it stemmed from a falling out after Lil Wayne tried to leave Birdman's Cash Money label.

Cops say the assault rifle seen in the video looks a lot like the one used in the shooting.

No one was injured, but damage to the buses added up to 20thousand in cash money.

But there hasn't always been beef between Birdman and Weezy, remember when these two were homies?

For now the rappers haven't been charged, but cops do think there is a connection.

Winfrey is now sitting in the Cobb County Jail without bond.

Hey you know what they say, when it Waynes, it pours!
