Gunna has finally been released from prison after agreeing to a plea deal that will credit him with time served.
According to WSB-TV, the YSL rapper (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).
Gunna and his legal team entered an Alford plea where he plead guilty to one charge because it was in his best interest to do so as far as his freedom goes.
As a result, Gunna was sentenced to five years with one served in prison where he’s been since being arrested in May as part of the YSL indictment headlined by Young Thug. The four-year sentence left will reportedly 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.
“My focus of YSL was entertainment — rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and ‘glorified’ urban life in the Black community.”

As for Young Thug, he 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, claims the rapper is innocent on all of the charges he’s facing and is being wronged by 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, which prosecutors allege is a criminal street gang that claims affiliation with the Bloods.
