Gunna has ended his months-long incarceration by taking a plea deal in the YSL RICO case. According to TMZ, the rapper entered a pre-negotiated a pleae deal known as an Alford plea yesterday (December 14th)
The Grammy-nominated rapper entered a pre-negotiated plea known as an Alford plea and was sentenced to five years — with one year commuted for the time he's already served. The remaining four will be suspended, pending community service and other special conditions.
Gunna released a statement, saying that he didn’t think of YSL as a gang circa 2016 when his rap career began and only focused only on the entertainment aspects, even if it meant an exaggeration of the “Black urban” lifestyle.
He also said that his guilty plea didn't mean any cooperation against any other YSL members and his Alford plea acknowledges his own association with YSL.
Gunna added that he is looking forward to giving back to his community and wants young people to know that gangs and violence are the gateways to their destruction.
