Update: Gunna has now surrendered himself to authorities.

Original: The explosive news about the arrests of Young Thug and 28 of their alleged associates has shocked hip-hop. Unlike Young Thug, Gunna was not arrested following the gang-related indictment. It appears, authorities are working together to for the rapper’s voluntary surrender.

Radar Online reported that the Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat shared that the 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, was not in police lockup as of Tuesday afternoon. During a press conference, Sheriff Labat stated, “He is not in custody.”

Labat then assured the media that he had been in contact with Gunna’s team and they were working out a strategy for his surrender. He continued, “We’re making arrangements, he had representatives call me last night directly so we’ll muddle through that piece and let you know.”


As we previously reported, Young Thug was arrested at his Atlanta home on Monday. A video showing him being taken into police custody quickly went viral. The Grammy winner was charged with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

Meanwhile, Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel, said in a statement, “Mr. Williams committed no crime whatsoever and we will fight to my last drop of blood to clear him.” This is a developing story, we will be on the lookout for more updates. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
