Sergio Kitchens, best known as Atlanta rapper Gunna, has now been arrested just days after Young Thug was arrested and had his home raided by police. It was like someone tipped the cops off since the ripped open the walls and dug up the backyard…
CelebnMusic247.com reports that Gunna is currently in custody in Fulton County as part of an investigation into a group officials say is a violent street gang that committed multiple murders, shootings and carjackings over roughly a decade.
The “Pushing P” rapper has been booked into the Fulton County jail on RICO charges. He’s slated to have his first appearance in court Wednesday morning.
The 88-page indictment filed Monday in Georgia’s Fulton County quotes lyrics from multiple music videos as evidence and accuses alleged gang members of committing violent crimes to collect money for the gang, promote its reputation and enhance its power and territory.
“It does not matter what your notoriety is, what your fame is, if you come to Fulton County, Georgia, and you commit crimes, … you are going to become a target and a focus of this district attorney’s office, and we are going to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law,” Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said Tuesday at a news conference announcing the charges.
The massive indictment claims that Gunna was part of a gang that has terrorized Atlanta for a decade. In total, 28 people are indicted on a list of crimes tied to gang activity.
The indictment also accuses members of the gang of trying to kill rapper YFN Lucci, whose given name is Rayshawn Bennett, by “stabbing and stabbing at” him with a shank in the Fulton County Jail. YFN Lucci was among a dozen people charged in another gang-related RICO indictment in Fulton County a year ago.
Gunna’s arrest comes days after police arrested rapper Young Thug, whose given name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, at his Buckhead home.
