A pivotal state’s witness offered fireworks and then some on Tuesday in the racketeering (RICO) case against several Atlanta-area rappers and others affiliated with YSL Records, the label founded by Jeffrey Williams, better known by his stage name, Young Thug.

In a morning break between the state’s direct examination, the attorney representing the witness answered in the affirmative when asked by Fulton County Superior Court Chief Judge Ural D. Glanville if she “would like to be released” from serving as counsel.

The lawyer’s voice was somewhat demure — but the state’s witness thrust his head forward and loudly affirmed the shake-up.

“She fired,” Kenneth “Lil Woody” Copeland told the court — saying he no longer wanted or required the attorney’s services.
