After spending half a year behind bars and then accepting a plea deal, Gunna says he is back, but Tekashi 69 responds wanting answers.
Gunna says he is back with his first Instagram post since accepting an Alford plea deal. The 29-year-old artist along with 27 YSL affiliates were named in a 56-count indictment last May. Gunna was able to free himself from prison after becoming the first individual to accept a plea deal.
The announcement sent shockwaves within the industry, as many questioned Gunna’s decision. Video of Gunna accepting his plea deal went viral, while many chimed in such as Wack 100, who claimed he had received intel stating Young Thug’s team was stunned by Gunna’s decision.

Even those outside the music industry gave their thoughts on Gunna accepting a plea deal. Comedian DL Hughley interview on VLAD TV, had the 59-year-old saying, “The government don’t do nothing for nothing,” implying Gunna had indeed turned on Young Thug. A statement which angered Gunna’s lawyer Steve Sadow who continued to defend his client and attempting to assure everyone that Gunna is no snitch.

On Tuesday night (January 10), Gunna broke his silence and said he was back! “Ni**** acting like they switching to a side But it’s only one side . #YslTheLabel #FreeThug&Yak GUNNA BACC!!!!!,” he said in the caption as he sat on a couch dressed in all black.
Tekashi 69 was quick to respond, questioning Gunna’s caption. “In court you said it was a gang here on IG u saying the label. Lol u can’t make this shit up.” (View: 69 Explains Alford Plea, Troll’s Gunna With Lil Keed Last IG Post)
6ix9ine is referring to Gunna’s plea deal where he said YSL as a gang must end. “I recognize, accept and deeply regret that my talent and music indirectly furthered YSL the gang to the detriment of my community,” Gunna said in the plea deal. “YSL as a gang must end.”
Gunna further explained himself in a statement back in December, “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.
