TMZ caught up with Boosie rapper on Friday (June 2) in New York to discuss the Atlanta rapper, who on the same day dropped his first new music since being released from jail after taking a plea deal in the ongoing YSL RICO case — which has led to him being accuse of snitching by various people.
In the Baton Rouge rapper’s opinion, no amount of money is good enough for him to work with Gunna, who he dubbed a “rat” — not even $1billion. “I don’t wanna talk about a rat,” he said.
Boosie did his best to tread lightly but made it clear he didn’t want to “incriminate” himself by mentioning what he would do if allowed to do business with a rat for a billion dollars.
The rapper even took it a step further by jokingly lumping in the Atlanta rapper with New York’s notorious rat infestation. “We in New York City, I see about three Gunna’s right now. One just went under the sewer,” he said while directing the reporter in the sewer’s direction.

This isn’t the first time Boosie has shut down a collaboration over his opinions on snitching. A few months ago, the rapper and T.I. got into it after T.I. allegedly snitched on his deceased cousin.
The two were preparing to release a joint album, but Boosie scrapped it following the snitching accusations — although, he’s since said it’s back on now that they’ve buried the hatchet.
Also a staunch critic of snitching, Lil Durk recently discussed Gunna’s involvement in the YSL RICO investigation. A few weeks back, Lil Durk stopped by DJ Akademiks’ Off The Record podcast to speak about the high-profile trial involving the two Atlanta rappers.
Upon being asked about Gunna’s plea deal and subsequent release from prison, Durk made it clear that he believes Gunna’s luck came at a cost, and it was the cost of his friends and business colleagues.
In May last year, Young Thug was arrested with Gunna and 26 others on racketeering charges related to Young Slime Life, which prosecutors allege is a criminal street gang that claims affiliation with the Bloods.
In December, Gunna and his legal team entered an Alford plea where he pleaded guilty to one charge, as it was in his best interest to do so as far as his freedom is concerned. As a result, Gunna was sentenced to five years with one year served. The four-year sentence left was reportedly “suspended” so that the rapper could serve the remainder through community service.
Despite rumors that he snitched, Gunna made it clear in a statement around that time that he had not cooperated with anyone.
