Lil Durk Accuses Gunna Of Snitching In YSL RICO Trial: “That Man Told”

Since it began earlier this year, the YSL RICO trial has come with more speedbumps and drama than anyone could have anticipated. One of the biggest figures in the case, Young Thug, has been denied bond four times now. Several of his co-defendants, including Gunna, however, are back to freedom after taking plea deals. The "Pushin P" hitmaker has denied allegations of snitching rising up against him over the past but hasn't done much to change the opinions of some of his contemporaries – including Lil Durk.

The Chicago native was the latest to join DJ Akademiks on the Off the Record podcast, at which time he shared his thoughts on snitching in general, as well as the Gunna situation. "Now I don’t sit up here and play games, man," Durkio said, making it abundantly clear he's not one to beat around the bush. "That man told. You should have went in there and kept your mouth closed," the father of six insisted, before expressing his own love for Thugger.

Lil Durk Speaks on Gunna's Plea Deal with DJ Akademiks

"If you a rat, you a rat. If you rewind this clip a little bit, I looked into the camera and told you, if you a rat, I f*cking hate you. Because I love Thug," Durk vented to the host. Elsewhere in the same conversation, the "All My Life" hitmaker revealed that the reason he has so much disdain for snitches is that one took away his father at a young age, leaving him to be raised alone by a woman without a strong male role model to lead the way for him.

While the 30-year-old gears up for the arrival of his highly anticipated album this Friday (May 26), the Atlanta-based artist has been keeping a relatively low profile lately. However, more photos have been surfacing as of late, revealing that he's gone through significant weight loss since his release from prison. Do you agree with Lil Durk's take on Gunna's plea deal?
