Atlanta-based Rapper Gunna who was arrested in RICO case earlier in May has been released today after pleading guilty to the charges.
29-year-old hitmaker whose real name is Sergio Kitchens has issued his first statement after being free where he said “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 who was arrested with his mentor Young Thug and 26 other members of YSL has distanced himself from “YSL the gang” versus “YSL the label” during his appearance in front of the judge where he also stated “I recognize, accept and deeply regret that my talent and music indirectly furthered YSL the gang to the detriment of my community, YSL as a gang must end”

Even though Gunna said he didn’t testify against the YSL members, it is a condition of Gunna’s trial that he testifies if he is called, though he can claim the Fifth Amendment.
( Meanwhile, YSL founder Young Thug still remains in jail and his trial will begin in January )
Gunna has to perform 500 hours of community service, a substantial portion of which will require him to speak to young people about the hazards and immorality of gangs and gang violence. He is also not allowed to carry a gun during his term of sentence.
