Gunna’s anti-snitching lyrics have been used against him after a fan made a viral video to clown the rapper for pleading out in the YSL RICO Case.
After entering an Alford plea and ultimately pleading guilty to a charge of racketeering conspiracy, Gunna (real name Sergio Kitchens) was granted freedom from custody in December. Due to the time he spent in jail following his arrest in May of last year as part of the extensive indictment against YSL, which the prosecution claims is a “criminal street gang,” he was given a sentence of five years with one year served.
The DS4Ever rapper has been accused of snitching several times since entering a plea deal, but he has maintained his innocence throughout the entire process.
“While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way,” Gunna said in a statement at the time of his release from jail.
Despite these claims, fans have persisted in mocking Gunna for accepting any kind of plea deal, especially as the leader of his YSL, Young Thug is still detained and awaiting trial.
One savvy fan took the trolling to new heights by compiling a video containing twelve anti-snitching lyrics from Gunna’s past, all of which were stopped by the late TakeOff shouting “cap,” stolen from a previous appearance on The Breakfast Club. The tracks include “Outta Sight Outta Mind,” “Take It To Trial,” “Wunna,” “Private Island,” and “Skybox.”
“Damn Gunna had hits,” commented one forgiving fan, while another wrote: “Pussy studio Gangsta. Walk the talk.”
“Y’all saying this about ol’ boy, but let 15 years be staring you in the face, and we’ll see who’s hood and who ain’t,” wrote another supporter.
After being released from prison, the YSL signee has kept a quiet profile, but the compilation video comes after he was recently taunted by a Gunna impersonator on YouTube. The Atlanta rapper appeared to reply to the taunts by using a lot of laughing emojis on his Instagram Story.
Rappers and fans have continued to discuss Gunna’s plea agreement, and after a recent Okayplayer article that featured interviews with legal professionals to discuss Alford pleas, Gunna’s legal team responded to the article and reaffirmed their client’s innocence, claiming he “never” cooperated with law enforcement.
“Gunna has never been interviewed by or cooperated with law enforcement or prosecutors in the RICO case,” the statement read. “Nor have his attorneys proffered information on his behalf.”
They continued: “What was said at his Alford plea hearing was solely to resolve his own case. It cannot be used by the prosecution against Young Thug or any other defendant.”
