Gunna Releases Statement From Jail!

On the heels of Young Thug’s announcement at Hot 97s Summer Jam, Gunna has released a statement.

In the statement, rapper Gunna says he’s worked hard to provide for his family and that as a Black man in America, his art is not allowed to stand alone as entertainment… previously reported that Gunna, Young Thug and 26 other YSL members were arrested on RICO charges.

Since their arrest the government says YSL is a dangerous street gang. Thugger and Gunna say it’s a record label.

The picture that is 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. As a Black man in America, it seems as though my art is only acceptable when I’m a source of entertainment for the masses. My art is not allowed to stand alone as entertainment, I’m not allowed that freedom as a Black man in America. It is a sad reality that slavery is still alive in America today and still affecting my people. In 12 states more than half of the prison population is Black, on of those states is Georgia.

He adds:

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. When I was free, I was good and kind to the community around me and, when I am released, I will do the same thing all over again. We still pushing P: Power, Prayer, Progress, Passion, Productivity, Praise, Precision, Pease, Prosperity, Patience, Pride and Persistence.
