It appears thieves may have taken up Quality Control Music CEO Pierre “Pee” Thomas’ offer of $20,000 for the safe return of two stolen hard drives.
Thomas posted an image via Instagram showing a FaceTime chat with Lil Baby, who is holding up the hard drives. Additionally, it seems they may have contained new music by Lil Yachty.
“Hard Drives Secured. Thank You [Lil Baby],” he wrote in the caption. “Nuthin 2 Prove Album On The Way [Lil Yachty].”
It’s not clear how the hard drives were obtained or whether money was exchanged. Thomas’ original post has since been deleted.

An engineer affiliated with Quality Control Music had his Dodge Journey stolen at a gas station in Atlanta on Tuesday (October 10). While the car can be replaced, label CEO Pierre “Pee” Thomas took to Instagram to offer $20,000 cash for the safe return of a hard drive inside the vehicle.
Thomas made it clear that he’s not concerned about the vehicle itself.
“Attention: Atlanta,” he wrote in the post. “Whoever just jumped in my the Dodge Journey and stole the car at the Chevron on Northside dr. That was my engineer car with an important hard drive in it.
“I know you are just doing what you do and I’m not knocking your hustle cause I use to steal cars in the 90’s. I have 20k cash money for the hard drive back.”
Thomas wrote in the caption, “Hit me in the dm or anybody who you know that know me or anybody in the camp. It’s all good we need that hard drive.”
