Rapper Gunna is a free man, but many such as Boosie Badazz and 6ix9ine call “snitch.”
On Wednesday (December 14), Atlanta rapper Gunna walked out of Fulton County Jail a free man. Gunna pleaded guilty to a charge in the RICO Act case filed against him and dozens of other alleged associates. Now Gunna is looking at no more time behind bars.
While many were thrilled to see the rapper free with possible new music on the way, others questioned his loyalty and hit Gunna with the “snitch” label. Boosie Badazz tweeted, clearly disappointed. “Rat 🐀 🐀 🐀 🧀 THIS WOULD HAVE PUT TEARS N MY EYES 😢MY BROTHER , MY ARTIST LIKE WTF IM FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE THAT IM NOT RUNNING A GANG/CRIMINALENTERPRIZE N YOU DO THIS TO BIGDOG‼️UKNOW ITS A GANG .. THE GUNS N DRUGS NOT YOURS.. WELL WHO ELSE WAS NTHE CAR THEY CAN BE FOR SMH.”
Boosie later blamed Gunna’s lawyer for taking advantage of the rapper to cash in. “HE HAD ONE CHARGE HE WASNT GOING TO GET NO HARD TIME ‼️THESE LAWYERS DONT GIVE A DAM ABOUT YOUR LEGACY.THEY KNOW WHAT THEY DOING TO YOUR NAME BUT THET GETTING YOU OUT OF JAIL SO THEY NAME BLOWS UP THEN U GOTTA PAY THEM MORE WHEN U FREE N THEY MADE U COOPERATE‼️Itsacoldgame,” he tweeted.
Another rapper chiming in on the matter was Tekashi 69 who is all too familiar with snitching. Aside from Tekashi 69 going at various artists while he was on the rise with Trey Way, many blackballed the rapper for snitching on his former camp.
“Go ahead and make your 1,000,000 excuses. I stand on what ever I do or did. That’s why I’m still walking on this earth AND NOTHING EVER HAPPENS TO ME. I am him p****. Real n***** getting shit and kicked in the face, can’t be me,” 6ix9ine wrote in the comments on IG.
Gunna’s plea deal consist of:
- Plea deal sentenced him to five years with one year to serve in prison
- Time served was granted
- 500 hours community service with 350 of those hours speaking to young men and women in the community about the dangers of gangs and gang violence
- After completing his community service, the entire sentence will be terminated
Upon his release, Gunna broke his silence via a statement:
“When I became affiliated with YSL in 2016, I did not consider it a “gang”; more like a group of people from metro Atlanta who had common interests and artistic aspirations.
My focus of YSL was entertainment – rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and “glorified” urban life in the Black community.
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.
I have chosen to end my own RICO case with an Alford plea and end my personal ordeal by publicly acknowledging my association with YSL. An Alford plea in my case is the entry of a guilty plea to the one charge against me, which is in my best interest, while at the same time maintaining my innocence toward the same charge. I love and cherish my association with YSL music, and always will. I look at this as an opportunity to give back to my community and educate young men and women that “gangs” and violence only lead to destruction.”
