IN JAIL VIDEO CALL WITH HIS GODSON, GUNNA SMILES

Gunna is most certainly going to spend the remainder of the year in prison, but that doesn’t seem to be depressing him.

The Atlanta rapper, whose real name is Sergio Kitchens, was shown grinning throughout a video chat with his godson from prison that went viral on Sunday (July 17).

Gunna, dressed in a blue jumpsuit, made a joke over the phone, “Shorty look like a real playa, though,” The youngster, who was seated next to his mother in front of a laptop, grinned and babbled in response.

In a broad RICO case against their Young Slime Life (YSL) collective, which prosecutors have accused of being a “criminal street gang” responsible for a number of violent crimes in Atlanta, including murder and armed robbery, Gunna was charged on May 9 alongside Young Thug and 26 other individuals.

The DS4Ever hitmaker is accused of conspiring to break the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO Act) on one count. Due to his use of YSL chains and posting on social media purportedly promoting the “criminal” collective, prosecutors have linked him to the case.

In a letter that he sent in June while incarcerated, Gunna insisted on his innocence and promised to “never stop fighting to clear my name.”

“For now, I don’t have my freedom. But I am innocent,” he wrote. “I am being falsely accused and will never stop fighting to clear my name! The picture being painted of me is ugly and untrue. My fans know I love to celebrate life, I love my family, I love travel, I love music, I love my fans. I have all faith that God will grant me justice for the purity in my heart and the innocence of my actions.”

A trial for both Gunna and Young Thug (who also remains in jail after being denied bond) has been set for January 9, 2023.
