There is speculation among Young Thug fans that his latest song, “Jonesboro,” contains a subtle diss aimed at Gunna due to his reference to snitching. The song is featured on Thugger’s recently released surprise album Business Is Business, which came out on June 23. However, it is worth mentioning that these tracks were likely recorded before his arrest in May 2022, when there were no allegations of snitching against Gunna. In the song, Young Thug delivers his bars.

“Y’all n-ggas just a bunch of dykes, fucking n-ggas/N-ggas told and he was my homie/I can’t miss him/Ain’t nobody feel him,”

There was a difference of opinion about whether it was a diss directed at Gunna. One fan expressed doubt, writing, “Is this the only instance of Gunna being targeted? It can’t be the only one.” Meanwhile, another fan questioned whether Young Thug left prison just to record a subliminal message aimed at Gunna, only to sneak back undetected.

Gunna has faced accusations of being a snitch since he pleaded out in the YSL RICO case in December, seven months after his arrest. Despite these claims, the “Drip Too Hard” rapper has assured fans on his new album, A Gift & A Curse, that he did not rat out anyone. It is worth noting that the album was released through Thug’s YSL label.

In several tracks of his new album, Gunna directly confronts the accusations of being a “snitch.” In “I Was Just Thinking,” he shares his emotional reaction to Young Thug’s situation and refutes the false claims made against him. He expresses in his lyrics,

“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-gga 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,”

On “Rodeo Dr,” he mentions that he has been confronting individuals who have accused him of being a snitch. However, it is unclear who he is referring to specifically. He expresses this in his lyrics.

“I know you heard I been pullin’ up pressin’ these n-ggas who claimin’ I ratted/ And been all on the yacht with my muthafuckin’ shirt off, look at it, my whole body tatted,”

Gunna received a five-year suspended sentence, with credit for the one year he already served since his arrest in May 2022. Despite his previous denial of snitching, Gunna made a statement upon his release from jail.

“While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way. My focus of YSL was entertainment — rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and ‘glorified’ urban life in the Black community.”

Gunna’s legal team has recently reiterated his claim of innocence, stating that he has never collaborated with law enforcement.
