Following rumors of a new album ready to drop, fans are hearing unreleased Gunna tracks within the context of Young Thug's trial.

As YSL's trial looms larger and longer over the Atlanta collective, its most highly publicized plea-taker is continuing his career. A new snippet recently surfaced of an unreleased Gunna song where the rapper talks about "fighting it out." Moreover, this likely refers to his rocky and uncertain relationship with Young Thug and the rest of his rap crew after accusations of snitching. Furthermore, the snippet appeared on Brittany Reshaun's Instagram story, model and friend to the 29-year-old. While he's been lying low since taking plea, fans and detractors alike are wondering what his personal and career future will look like.

"Heard the rumors said I'm packing up and flying out," he raps on the unreleased track. "We ain't going nowhere I'm staying here, gone fight it out / I meant like f**k it / Let’s just give these n***as dark clouds / Been gone for months and I just keep seeing these dark clouds." Of course, these bars could refer to anything in theory, especially considering Wunna's free-flowing rap style. However, it lines up too perfectly for comfort, and there's truth even in context alone despite possibly different intentions.

New Gunna Song Snippet Reveals Musings On YSL

As YSL's RICO case unfolds, rumors swirled of Gunna leaving the camp and signing with a major label. Considering how much longer the trial is expected to last, perhaps it'll be a long time before fans see how (or if) a reconciliation plays out. Currently, the process of jury selection is in a months-long process, one that is moving as quickly as possible, but still is facing delays and extensions. According to, the trial itself will expectedly last take nine months, and opening arguments may not begin until the fall. As such, the timeframe in between those dates will likely consist of further jury selection.

Meanwhile, this snippet comes weeks after DJ Akademiks alleged that Gunna wants out of YSL and has a whole album ready to drop. People's reactions to the news ranged from excited to outraged, mocking to sympathetic, and from appraisals to cancellations. Clearly he still has a strong fanbase that will look past his issues with YSL. Still, many wonder for how long they will stick around, and how he will sidestep these accusations in the industry. Regardless, check back in with HNHH for the latest news and updates on Gunna.
