Gunna was imprisoned in connection with a gang-related indictment that also included Young Thug and 26 other YSL associates. It appears, Diddy is among those looking to keep Gunna’s spirits high as he awaits trial in the YSL (Young Slime Life) RICO case.
The Bad Boy boss called the currently imprisoned rapper recently and urged him to “keep the faith” and “remain laser focused,” according to a video he uploaded on Instagram on Saturday (October 1). uff began by extending his prayers and sympathies to Gunna over his legal troubles.
However, the DS4Ever hitmaker made it clear he’s remaining positive and staying focused on regaining his freedom while behind bars. Diddy told Gunna, “I’m praying, man. I’m praying,” who replied: “Yeah, that’s it. They gonna work. I’m doing nothing but preserving my self and keeping my mind together and getting myself right for when I’m back out there.”
“I’m sorry you going through this, though, king. You feel me?” Puff continued, with Gunna adding: “But it’s part of the journey so I have to just understand that. It’s just about climbing and refocusing and making sure I’m prepared for when I do come out.”
Then Diddy then began one of his well-known pep talks, straddling the line between hip-hop mogul, pastor, and psychiatrist. He said, “I know you was cold before, but you know, sometimes God — that’s what he does. He takes us through these crazy journeys, man,” before adding, “I know you supposed to be out here, man. I know it’s just gonna make you stronger and we getting ready for your return.”
“Empower your mind every single second, stay in a high frequency. Know that it’s gonna be alright, it’s for a reason that you don’t even know about and just get ready for your return. You got some good time in there to be laser focused and do a lot of positive things and dream big and bold.”
“Know that I’m praying for you and my God answers my prayers, when I put that special prayer on. And you deserve that. You’re a beautiful person, and beautiful brother and I can’t wait to see the things you do when you come out and you get back, king. I love you.”
Gunna graciously replied: “I love you too. Appreciate you for everything, king. Everything.”
The 29-year-old was charged with one count of conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, and prosecutors linked him to the larger RICO indictment using numerous social media posts and images of him sporting YSL chains. Despite maintaining his innocence, Gunna has twice been granted bond due to worries that he would flee and that potential witnesses might be intimidated.
