Gunna’s lawyers speak out about the rapper’s “intensely problematic” RICO indictment
Gunna’s lawyers have spoken out about the rapper’s recent RICO indictment.After being named in a 28-person grand jury indictment that also included Young Thug earlier this week, rapper Gunna was taken into custody on Wednesday (May 11).Gunna – real name Sergio Kitchens – is charged, along with the other 27 people listed in the 56-count indictment, with conspiracy to violate the state of Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.The indictment centres around the YSL record label and collective, allegedly formed by Thug – real name Jeffery Lamar Williams – in 2012, which authorities claim is a “criminal street gang”. Part of the indictment is based around Williams, Kitchens and other YSL associates’ lyrics and social media posts allegedly being “acts in furtherance of the conspiracy”.Among those lyrics are a line from Williams and Kitchens’ collaboration ‘Slatty’, in which the latter raps: “I killed his man in front of his momma / Like fuck lil bruh, sister and his cousin.”Now, Gunna’s legal team have responded, describing the RICO indictment as “intensely problematic”.In a new motion seeking Gunna’s release on bond, the lawyers say he has “no significant criminal history” and that he shouldn’t be locked up because of his lyrics.“It is intensely problematic that the state relies on song lyrics as part of its allegations,” they said.“These lyrics are an artist’s creative expression and not a literal recounting of facts and circumstances.

Watch Pete Davidson and Gunna take aim at “long-ass” movies on ‘SNL’
Gunna teamed up last night (April 2) for a Saturday Night Live sketch about the unnecessary length of certain movies – watch the clip below.The pair – along with Chris Redd and Simon Rex – collaborated in a sketch titled ‘Short-Ass Movies’ about how movies that exceed runtimes of 100 minutes are not suitable for late night viewing.Taking aim at films such as The Batman, Amadeus, Heat and Once Upon A Time In America for their extended runtimes, Davidson says he can’t handle any more long movies because he’s “a simple man with no attention span”.“Night after night, there’s only one kind of movie I’m always looking for, and that’s a short-ass movie/ A really short movie, like at most an hour 40/ Gimme a short-ass movie,” Davidson raps in the sketch.Gunna, who was this week’s SNL musical guest, shares Davidson’s distaste for lengthy films, joining the sketch to list off a number of shorter features he prefers: The Lion King, Bad Moms and “all three Austin Powers” films.Elsewhere in the sketch, Davidson reveals that he “pissed himself twice” while watching The Batman because “it was longer than The Hobbit“, and Simon Rex (aka “Dirt Nasty” in the music world) celebrates the short runtime of eight Ernest movies and how “a true thing of beauty is the three-minute short before every Pixar movie”.Davidson also jokes about the runtime of his own movie, The King Of Staten Island, which has a runtime of 2hr 17mins.
