As his debut after being released from prison, Gunna dropped his new song “bread & butter,” which tells the story of his legal battle and incarceration.
Gunna was arrested and charged in a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) indictment last May alongside Young Thug and 28 other people. The indictment included over 50 separate counts. His trial was set to take place some time this year, however Gunna ended up pleading guilty to one charge of racketeering, which got him released on probation.
The new song sheds some light on the rappers time trying to fight the system. In the second verse he says, “F*ck I paid the lawyers all those mills for? / Just so I won’t have to say a word to dodge a railroad.” He also continues to say “Never gave no statement or agree to take no stand on ‘em. . . lawyers and the DA did some sneaky shit, I fell for it.”
The single is available to stream on all platforms including Spotify and Apple Music.
