Fans were alarmed when they heard Gunna and Young Thug would be stuck behind bars until their January 2023 trial for alleged gang activity. However, Wunna is making new headlines with a promising update.
Despite being locked up for the past three months as part of the RICO case against the Young Slime Life (YSL) clique in Atlanta, Gunna's influence is still strong. Cincinnati Bengals star QB Joe Burrow said he's been bumping "a lot of old Gunna lately" to get ready for the NFL season.
Plus, Gunna's smooth 2018 performance on the YouTube music channel Colors sparked a viral trend where fans and even some artists like Latto stand next to an imaginary microphone and rap the lyrics to "Top Off" from his 'Drip Season 3' mixtape.
"I took the top off / I'm dripping like hot sauce / I got drank and it's clean raw / Baby give me that mean mouth / Hit that p***y like golf ball / I can do this without y'all / Call the Locs, I go loco," he croons on the hook.
Gunna is paying attention to the hype and can't wait to get back outside. The 29-year-old shared his thankfulness for the fact that 'DS4EVER' is now certified Platinum with 1 million copies sold. He also told his 4.4 million IG followers that he'll "be home soon," though there are few details.
While Gunna was denied bond twice, his lawyers recently filed a rare petition that asked Harris County – the county next to Fulton where he's being held – to review whether his imprisonment is unlawful. In June, he claimed he was only allowed to leave his jail cell for 2 hours per day!
Adding to the uncertain future of YSL is that Young Thug was reportedly hit with 6 new felony charges stemming from a sweep of his Atlanta home, including possession of a machine gun and several drug-related charges. He's maintaining his innocence.
