Gunna is back. The Atlanta native has officially dropped his first single since his December release from jail. In “Bread & Butter,” he addresses the snitch rumors. This comes after his controversial plea deal in the ongoing RICO case against Young Thug’s Young Slime Life (YSL) collective. In the case, prosecutors allege that the group is not a rap collective but a criminal street gang.
In the second verse, he defends himself against the rumors. He calls out what role others played in his release. “F— I pay the lawyers all those mills for?/ Just so I won’t have to say a word to dodge a railroad,” he raps, before echoing past sentiments on him not being a rat. “Never gave no statement or agreed to take no stand on ’em/ On whatever you n—– on, then trust me, I’ma stand on it/ Lawyers and the D.A. did some sneaky s—, I fell for it/ On my Ps and Qs because this time, I be prepared for it.”
The criminal justice system is not the only party that was called out in Gunna’s return. The rapper pointed a finger at Lil Baby, who Gunna says is in business with a snitch.
“Peepin’ s—, I’m seein’ n—– fall back/ You bitch-a– n—– got me as the topic of the chat/ You switched on me when you know you in business with a rat/ And the boy that’s like your brother, and nobody speak on that,” he raps about his “Drip Harder” collaborator.
“The city see it clearly if I had to state a fact/ You still f— with a n—– that done got yo’ partner wacked/ Had these n—– talkin’, only knew ’em ’cause of Slatt/ You rap boys need more streams, heard he put my name on wax,” Gunna spits.
He hammers in on the point that he would never do his brother Young Thug wrong.
“Never f—– a n—-, always stayed solid/ Kept it real with n—–, never lied and always stay honest/ Love my bro so much, I never change on ’em/ Hunna Wunna goin’ do the work, bring you the damn profits.” he raps.
Gunna pleaded guilty to a single racketeering conspiracy charge via an Alford plea.
The Atlanta rapper spoke on the snitching allegations in a statement after his release.
“While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way,” the rapper said in a statement following his release from jail.
Young Thug remains behind bars at this time while he awaits trial on eight charges. In addition to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, he has also been charged with multiple drug and weapons offenses and for the alleged participation in criminal street gang activity.
