The video emerges weeks after Gunna (real name Sergio Kitchens) was released from prison after pleading guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge in December.
He was sentenced to five years with one year served due to the time he spent behind bars after being arrested last May as part of the sweeping YSL indictment against Young Thug and his label.
Gunna’s remaining four-year sentence was “suspended” and he was allowed to serve the remainder of his time in the form of 500 hours of community service.
While the blowback has been intense, the DS4Ever rapper has insisted from day one that he never snitched on anyone.
“While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way,” he said in a statement following his release from jail.
However, many of Gunna’s Hip Hop contemporaries have criticized his decision to accept a plea deal, and in a recent prank video, the 29-year-old is being clowned yet again.
The video starts off as a normal impersonator video, with a Gunna doppelgänger wandering around a mall trying to get fans’ attention. However, as people begin to take notice of fake Gunna’s presence, fans begin heckling him, with a few agitated mall-goers cussing him out for being a “rat.”
Gunna seemed to respond to the video by posting numerous laughing emoji’s in his Instagram Story on Tuesday (February 14) shortly after it went live.

Gunna wasn’t the only YSL member to accept a plea deal, with Young Thug’s brother Unfoonk (Quantavious Grier), Slimelife Shawty (Winnie Lee), Lil Duke (Martinez Arnold) and YSL co-founder Walter Murphy also pleading out.
Experts believe the guilty pleas will make Thug’s fight for freedom more difficult in regards to his RICO case, which alleges YSL is a “criminal street gang” behind a spree of violent crimes in the Atlanta area.
Thugger faces eight charges in the 65-count indictment, including conspiracy to violate the RICO Act and an array of weapons and drug charges. Jury selection in the trial began earlier this month, while the trial itself is expected to last for most of the year.
