Rapper Gunna, indicted with fellow rapper Young Thug and more than two dozen others for their roles in a violent Atlanta, Georgia, street gang that committed multiple murders, shootings and carjackings for over roughly a decade and promoted its activities in songs and on social media, was in custody Wednesday after surrendering to authorities.
The 28-year-old rapper Gunna, whose legal name is Sergio Giavonni Kitchens, was booked in the Fulton County Jail in the Atlanta area early Wednesday morning.
An indictment filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court accuses Gunna of violating Georgia’s anti-racketeering law against organized crime.
Gunna, alongside rapper Young Thug, whose legal name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, and aspiring rapper Christian Eppinger, co-founded Young Slime Life, a violent criminal street gang commonly known as YSL that is affiliated with the national Bloods gang in late 2012, according to Fulton County prosecutors.
The 88-page indictment includes a wide-ranging list of 181 gang-related acts that prosecutors say were committed starting in 2013 as part of the alleged RICO conspiracy to further the gang’s interests.
