He's also been very vocal recently about Gunna, Young Thug, and the YSL RICO case. He recently dropped a freestyle where he took aim at those that choose to snitch. While he doesn't mention Gunna by name many fans were able to connect the dots. Later in the freestyle he also expresses his desire for Young Thug to be freed.
