By accepting a plea deal towards a count of racketeering implicating him in the YSL Rico Case, Gunna has completed his imprisonment.
The Atlanta-born rapper was tried and convicted of five years in prison with one year forgiven for time already spent after accepting an agreement known as an Alford plea on Wednesday. The remaining four years will be postponed pending community service and other specified requirements.
Gunna claimed that he joined YSL in 2016 and that he did not view the organization as a crime syndicate, but rather as a collection of different, talented individuals in Atlanta working toward a shared objective.
Gunna mentioned in a press release on Wednesday, December 15, that the YSL-rap musicians created and presented tracks that emphasized the lavish lifestyle among the Afro-American culture. He also promises to be sincere, but he remains neutral in the investigation and has no desire to participate in the trial.
“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,” he explained.
Gunna is renowned for working with several artists, including Koffee, on her 2019 EP Rapture, which was also Grammy-nominated.
