On Wednesday (January 4), the Brooklyn rapper previewed a song called “Rat N-ggas” on Instagram, which hears him calling out those who take plea deals and leave their friends behind in prison.
“Heard you snitching on one of you friends/ Took a plea deal and left your dawg in that pen, n-gga,” he raps. “That pain never end/ What they played back in that courtroom playing back in his head, n-gga/ What all y’all n-ggas said.”
Bobby continues before the snippet cuts out: “Yea, all y’all n-ggas switch/ It’s lit, man, fuck all of you rap n-ggas/ Most of y’all some rat n-ggas/ All y’all chit-chat, n-gga.”

The incendiary track — which is said to be “coming soon” — drew emotional reactions from many of Bobby’s fans as well as some of his rap peers.
50 Cent chimed in with his stamp of approval. “Oh shit Bobby might got one, I like how you said that fool!,” 50 replied in the video’s comment section.
With the YSL RICO trial starting its jury selections this week, the “Rat N-ggas” snippet has caused people online to connect the dots between Bobby’s hate for snitching with the eight plea deals secured by YSL affiliates.
Gunna ultimately agreed to an Alford plea where he pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge on December 14 and was released from jail. He was sentenced to five years with one year served in prison where he’d been since being arrested in May as part of the YSL indictment headlined by Young Thug.
The four-year sentence left will be “suspended” and Gunna will serve the rest in the form of 500 hours of community service.
“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 told WSB-TV in a statement that he never considered YSL as a gang.
Bobby Shmurda served six years in prison for his role in the GS9 gang after being arrested on conspiracy to murder, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment charges.
The “Hot N-gga” rapper famously took a plea deal in 2016 in order to help shave some time off his GS9 affiliate Rowdy Rebel’s sentence. This move meant Bobby added time onto his own sentence. He was released in February 2021.
