Boosie Badazz has accused Gunna of being a rat after the YSL rapper pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge which has allowed him to be released from prison.
According to WSB-TV, Gunna (real name Sergio Kitchens) pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge when he was back in court for a virtual hearing on Wednesday (December 14). He was sentenced to five years with one year served in prison where he’s been since he was detained in May as part of the sweeping YSL indictment against Young Thug and his label.
The four-year sentence left will be “suspended” and Gunna will now be allowed to serve the remainder of his time 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.
“My focus of YSL was entertainment — rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and ‘glorified’ urban life in the Black community.”
However, Boosie Badazz isn’t buying Gunna’s claim and took to Twitter to accuse the “pushin p” rhymer of being a rat.
“Rat THIS WOULD HAVE PUT TEARS N MY EYES MY BROTHER , MY ARTIST LIKE WTF IM FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE,” Boosie wrote. “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.”
The caption was written alongside a video that sees Gunna agreeing to a list of charges and statements as they were read out to him, including that “YSL is a music label and a gang and you have personal knowledge that members or associates of YSL have committed crimes in the pertinence of the gang.”
“Yes ma’am,” Gunna can be heard replying to the latter.

While Gunna is now a free man, the same can’t be said for Young Thug, who remains behind bars in a Cobb County jail with his trial set to start in January.
Thugger was hit with additional charges earlier this week outside of his RICO case. He received misdemeanor charges for street racing, reckless driving and speeding. Thug is alleged to have drove a vehicle at 120 mph on Interstate 85 in May.
Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel, said the rapper is innocent of all of the charges and is a victim of the system.
“As of two weeks ago, that case was being resolved with a seatbelt violation,” he said in a statement. “Today, now its indicted in the Fulton County Superior Court. He is being wronged by our system.”
Young Thug was arrested with Gunna and 26 others on racketeering charges related to Young Slime Life back in 2021, which prosecutors allege is a criminal street gang that claims affiliation with the Bloods.
