Young Thug performs during Power 105.1's Powerhouse 2016 at Barclays Center on Oct. 27, 2016 in New York City. 

Young Thug has reportedly been cleared of felony drug and gun charges connected to a 2015 raid on his house outside Atlanta in Sandy Springs, Georgia. 

According to TMZ, the judge's ruling came after Young Thug's lawyers argued that police had entered the rapper's house without a proper search warrant. 

Young Thug had been reportedly charged with felony cocaine possession, felony marijuana possession and three counts of felony gun possession. The marijuana charges were dropped previously. 

Young Thug's rep declined to comment to Billboard.
