Rapper Gunna, who was jailed on a racketeering allegation last month, claimed in a media post message that “despite this difficult situation,” 2022 has been one of the finest years of his life. Sergio Kitchens, or as we know him as Gunna, declared his innocence and stated the image of him being portrayed as “ugly and untrue.”
“For now, I don’t have my freedom. But I am innocent. I am being falsely accused and will never stop fighting to clear my name!” he proclaims. Kitchens’ attorneys, Kristen Novay, Steve Sadow, Don Samuel, and John Garland, verified that the message was issued on his behalf on his birthday, Tuesday.
“It’s important for him to have a voice,” Novay stated, adding that her client is denied access to a phone in prison.
The “Don’t Play With It” rapper was one of more than two dozen persons accused in an 88-page indictment in Fulton County, Georgia, last month. Young Thug — real name Jeffery Williams — was also indicted. He’s suspected of forming Young Slime Life, a violent streets gang that’s known as YSL and is linked to the national Bloods gang, according to authorities. Kitchens, who is affiliated to Williams’ Young Stoner Life label, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album list for the second time this year with “DS4Ever.”
What else did Gunna say?
Gunna writes in his statement that he hails from a “marginalized community” and that his work has changed his life and the lives of his near and dear ones. “I used my art form, my gift from God, to change my circumstances,” the statement claims.
Ultimately, Gunna also stated, “Nothing will stop me from chasing my dreams, I won’t stop being a good person, even if some unnamed and unknown accusers want the world to see me as a bad person.”.
