Gunna’s Lawyers Say Police Are Wrong To Use Music Against Him

They also say their client is innocent.

Gunna’s legal team is defending the rapper, saying he’s not only an innocent man, but one of philanthropy.

According to TMZ, a statement has been released by his attorneys who assert that it’s wrong to use Gunna’s lyrical content as a part of any criminal case against him.

"Mr. Sergio Kitchens, known as Gunna, is innocent,” the lawyers stated, according to the news outlet. “The indictment falsely portrays his music as part of a criminal conspiracy."

The lawyers additionally pointed out contributions Gunna has made to his community, including the first-ever local free in-school grocery and clothing store feeding over 400 children weekly, and nationally sponsored giveaways for victims of disasters and food shortages.

"Mr. Kitchens has been an advocate for his community, and it is our privilege to advocate for him," the legal team, comprised of Donald F. Samuel, John A. Garland and Kristen W. Novay reportedly told TMZ.

Gunna turned himself in on Wednesday (May 11), two days after fellow YSL rapper Young Thug’s home was raided and the rapper was arrested. Both face RICO charges from a 56-count, 28-person indictment out of Fulton County, Georgia.
