Throughout the run of the YSL Rico trial, fans have wondered what role Gunna has played in Young Thug’s continued stay in jail. After Gunna was freed on an Alford Plea, rumors ran rampant that he snitched on Thugger. Young Thug’s father offers some context.
Gunna maintained his innocence against snitching allegations and continued to call for the release of Young Thug. Appearing in an interview with Infamous Sylvia, Young Thug’s father, Jeffrey Williams Sr., stated he loves Gunna.
“Let me try to help the attorney clarify that a little simpler,” Williams Sr. said. “Gunna hasn’t done anything whatsoever that can hurt us on this case, period.”
