Gunna’s anti-snitching lyrics have been used against him after a fan compiled a viral video to clown the rapper for pleading out in the YSL RICO Case.
Gunna (real name Sergio Kitchens) was released from jail in December after signing an Alford plea and in turn pleading guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge.
He was sentenced to five years with one year served due to the time he spent behind bars after being arrested last May as part of the sweeping indictment against YSL, which prosecutors allege is a “criminal street gang.”
The DS4Ever rapper has faced an onslaught of snitching allegations since pleading out but has insisted from day one that he didn’t snitch on anyone.
“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 said in a statement at the time of his release from jail.
Despite these claims, fans have continued to troll Gunna for taking any sort of plea deal, especially as his YSL leader Young Thug is still in jail awaiting trial.
One eagle-eyed fan took the trolling to new levels and compiled a video filled with a dozen anti-snitching lyrics Gunna has rapped over the years, all of which were interrupted by the late TakeOff saying “cap,” taken from an old interview on The Breakfast Club. The songs include “Outta Sight Outta Mind,” “Take It To Trial,” “Wunna,” “Private Island” and “Skybox.”
“Damn Gunna had hits,” commented one forgiving fan, while another wrote: “Pussy studio Gangsta. Walk the talk.”
“Y’all saying this about ol’ boy, but let 15 years be staring you in the face, and we’ll see who’s hood and who ain’t,” wrote another supporter.

The YSL signee has kept a low profile since getting out of jail, but the compilation video comes after he was recently taunted yet again by a Gunna impersonator on YouTube, which the Atlanta rapper seemed to respond to with numerous laughing emojis on his Instagram Story.
Gunna’s plea deal has remained a talking point amongst rappers and fans alike, and following a recent Okayplayerarticle that interviewed legal experts to discuss Alford pleas, Gunna’s legal team commented on the story and reaffirmed their client’s innocence, claiming he “never” cooperated with authorities.
“Gunna has never been interviewed by or cooperated with law enforcement or prosecutors in the RICO case,” the statement read. “Nor have his attorneys proffered information on his behalf.”
They continued: “What was said at his Alford plea hearing was solely to resolve his own case. It cannot be used by the prosecution against Young Thug or any other defendant.”
The YSL RICO case is far from over, but that hasn’t stopped Young Thug and Gunna’s journey already being turned into a Hulu documentary that aired on February 23.
The hour-long documentary, made by ABC News Studios, is titled Rap Trap: Hip-Hop on Trial and focuses on the sprawling criminal case against Thug, Gunna and their Atlanta-based collective while exploring the debate around rap lyrics being used as evidence in criminal prosecutions.
