Appearing on the latest episode of the Ugly Money Podcast with Murphy Lee, Mondo was asked what comes to mind when he hears certain words, with Gunna’s name being mentioned.
“I mean, the only way to answer that, man… my man did what he did,” he said. “He did what he did, man. I ain’t put no cap on it, I ain’t sitting here putting no – hey man, he did what he did, man. I know this for sure, I ain’t going off what no internet talking about. I ain’t going off what I’m seeing all over cap.
“I’m talking personally, on everything I love, I’m talking I know what’s going. Boy, you ain’t supposed to do that, my brother. Even if I did be talking to nobody, everybody who got common sense, everybody who’s been in the streets know, you do not, boy, you don’t do no shit like that my brother.”
He added: “I always said, bruh, he was a good genuine n-gga … But certain shit makes you do certain shit … You can’t say, ‘Oh, they tricked me,’ or ‘Oh, I ain’t talked,’ or ‘I don’t know what’s going on.’ Come on, my brother. It’s certain shit you just don’t do. And hey boy, you crossed the line, my brother. You did that.”
When Lee asked him to clarify if he was calling Gunna a snitch, he replied: “Everybody got the same ears I got? Unless you’re deaf or you’re blind. You took a plea saying you’re the main artist brother, you know this a gang and on top of that you got caught with something and it wasn’t yours, so who else was it? Who doing shit like that? Who doing that?
“You could have nothing, your shit finna get dropped, brother. You know that. Bruh, what the hell, you panicked. Not to bring back the panic word, you panicked, brother. You panicked, man … No bullshit, man. That boy panicked, man.”
Gunna pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge on December 14 and was released from jail after being given a five-year sentence with one already served in prison. The rest of his sentence will be served in the form of 500 hours of community service.
In a statement to the media following his release from jail, the DS4Ever rapper insisted he had not snitched on any of his co-defendants by taking the plea deal.
“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.
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 among them.
Experts believe the string of guilty pleas make Thug’s fight for freedom an even bigger challenge in the RICO case, which alleges YSL is a “criminal street gang” behind a spree of violent crimes in the Atlanta area.
Thugger himself 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.
