Atlanta-based rapper Gunna has made a striking comeback with his latest track “Bread and Butter,” stirring up the hip-hop scene with controversial lyrics and a powerful beat. The song, which marks Gunna’s first release since his release from jail last December, seems to address the commotion surrounding his controversial plea deal in the ongoing RICO case against Young Thug’s Young Slime Life (YSL) collective.
“Bread and Butter,” produced by Turbo, Omar Grand, and Cam Griffin, features Gunna hitting back at those who’ve labeled him a snitch for pleading his way out of the high-profile case. He suggests he was tricked by lawyers and the Fulton County District Attorney into taking a plea deal. The lyrics express his frustration with the situation and his determination to set the record straight.
The song’s lyrics have sparked speculation that Gunna is taking aim at his “Drip Harder” collaborator Lil Baby. The lines in question suggest a falling out and accuse an unnamed individual of being in business with a rat. Gunna has denied these rumors, stating that he’s just telling his story.
Despite the controversy, Gunna’s new track has been well-received by fans. The black and white visuals accompanying the song, directed by Leff, add to the track’s raw and honest vibe. Gunna’s lyrical prowess and the track’s hard-hitting beat make “Bread and Butter” a standout release.
The release of “Bread and Butter” comes amidst a challenging time for Gunna and the YSL collective. Young Thug, the founder of YSL, remains behind bars awaiting trial on several charges
