At this point, the heated discussion on social media about Gunna’s label as a “rat” after he accepted a plea agreement in the YSL RICO case is becoming a little old. Yes, some of that is due to newly discovered legal problems, but it has also affected every method of following his movements. For instance, a social media video showing prisoners enjoying his music video for “bread & butter” cannot pass without a dig at his “snitch” notoriety. It can be irritating to fight about that when so much of the YSL trial is still in limbo, even if such situations are always difficult to evaluate from an outside standpoint (as many fans have tried to do).
Regardless, the video captures a group of people gathered around a TV screen in prison, where you can faintly see that Gunna’s latest music video for his latest single is playing. It’s unclear whether they’re also singing along, although some are clearly enjoying the video to some degree. It’s not very surprising considering the truckloads of people within and outside of the media that continue to show their support. With more new music promised to be on the way, it’s unlikely that the College Park native will lose his fanbase quickly.

However, there are other places where the “Banking On Me” artist’s music isn’t getting the same warm reception. In fact, a recent clip of Gunna playing at an Atlanta club sums up the negative emotions that many view his music through these days, with the whole venue going silent and still once his verse appeared. It’s an extreme reaction, whether out of solidarity for Young Thug or to hop on a snitch-bashing trend. No matter the case, it shows how contentious his case continues to be in the public eye.
Meanwhile, rappers themselves perhaps seem even more harsh and critical of the 29-year-old’s actions than fans themselves. Former collaborators cut ties entirely, others have left question marks on their relationship, and many who frankly don’t have a lot to do with him expressed their dislike. Yet it doesn’t matter who’s bumping his music where or for what reason: he seems here to stay in the near future, and probably beyond.
