Gunna released a message to fans as he continues to fight his RICO case from behind bars. This comes after Gunna was denied bond during a hearing on May 23, as he has been charged with felony conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.
Gunna maintained his innocence in the letter, stating, "I don't have my freedom. But I am innocent." He started out speaking about his success, including having "the whole world Pushin P," and Gunna went on to detail how he never dreamt that his gift for music would change his life and the lives of his loved ones. Gunna explained that he was raised watching Black men, women and children "constantly attacked, hated, murdered, berated, belittled, silenced, judged, used, and held captive."
Gunna went on to tell fans that "the picture being painted of me is ugly and untrue," and he stated that he has "faith that God will grant me justice for the purity in my heart and the innocence of my actions. He also addressed his lyrics being used in the case, writing, "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."
He closed out his message by stating that he'll never stop chasing his dreams or being a good person "even if some unnamed and unknown accusers want to see me as a bad person." You can read the message in full above.
