A man was confronted by Gunna's security after he recorded a video of himself calling the rapper a "rat" for accepting a plea deal in the YSL RICO case.

"N***a, Gunna the rat," the man said in the video he posted online, as seen below. "What'd you say?" replied his security, he approached the man. When confronted by security, he suggested all he said was, "N***a, Gunna," but they weren't so convinced. "Nah, what you say before that?" asked the security. "Whatever I wanted to say, brother," the man added. "I want you to repeat it," said the security, as Gunna walked on in the background. The man appeared to back down but briefly antagonized the security to get physical so he could "sue the hell out of" them.

Gunna's decision to accept an Alford plea, in which he effectively pleaded guilty to the offenses he was facing while maintaining his innocence, has been controversial among the hip-hop community and fans alike. Following his release from jail, his attorney Steve Sadow shot down the snitching allegations against his client.

“Gunna did not snitch to get out of jail,” Sadow wrote. “He has said nothing and is not cooperating. His plea statement cannot be used in court against any other defendant. So please stop spreading lies.” The rapper also addressed the allegations on his recent album A Gift & A Curse, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart with 85,000 album-equivalent units.

Gunna has insisted that he did not "snitch" on Young Thug and his YSL cohorts, but the Alford plea has seemingly caused a rift between him and his Drip Harder collaborator Lil Baby, who addressed the drama in a leaked snippet of an unreleased single. "That’s four walls talkin’ to you, tellin’ you you gone/ Only I done criеd, ’cause this feelin’ for my bro (King Slime)/ And you know my mind, you done watched that n***a grow/ I know you hear the lies, it’s your lil’ brother, my folk/ Yeah, I had popped out, but don’t let ’em say I told,” he raps on the preview.

Others who have criticized Gunna include Boosie Badazz and Lil Durk, who firmly believes Gunna "told" on Thug.

Gunna is scheduled to perform two shows next month, which will be his first since he was incarcerated as part of the sweeping RICO indictment. Thug, meanwhile, was recently denied bond for a fourth time as jury selection in the case reached its eighth month.
