Rapper Gunna was released from prison last week after pleading guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge as part of the Young Slime Life (YSL) gang’s RICO prosecution.
Sergio Kitchens, a 29-year-old rapper, was sentenced to five years in jail for his role in the RICO case.
Gunna has now entered a plea, which implies he has admitted culpability while maintaining his innocence if the prosecution’s case is likely to result in a guilty conviction at trial.
The rapper will also be required to perform 500 hours of community service, which will entail teaching young men and women about the “hazards and immorality” of gangs and gang violence.
As part of the agreement, he must also remain away from guns and his defendants.
“While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it completely clear that I have NOT made any statements,” Gunna declared after his release from jail.
He denied being interrogated, cooperating, agreeing to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case, and having “absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any manner.”
Gunna also stated in the statement that when he joined affiliated with YSL (Young Slime Life) in 2016, he did not believe them to be a gang.
In May, a jury of 56 people identified Gunna, Young Thug, and 26 others as members of the YSL, a criminal street gang. Some of the defendants were charged with heinous offenses like murder and attempted armed robbery, and Young Thug is still in prison.
