The Wrap Up with L’Orèal Luchi, keeping you informed on everything that happened in hip hop culture this week:


Gunna’s legal team is determined to get their client out on bond. They filed a third motion and argued prosecutors failed to reveal evidence supporting their argument that Gunna should remain behind bars. They say prosecutors failed to show one witness who accused Gunna of threatening anyone. His co-counsel said, “Gunna is very hopeful that the Court will recognize that the discovery provided by the prosecution fails to show his pretrial release poses a significant risk of danger. 

Gunna has been locked up since May, along with Young Thug, fighting RICO charges. The Trial date is set for January 9, 2023.

50 Cent:

50 Cent recently cut ties with Starz for good and is moving on to his next venture in the series world. 50 revealed the trailer for Hip Hop Homicides, investigating the murders of several high-profile rappers.

PnB Rock:

There’s been a break in the murder investigation of PnB Rock. According to the police, a father, son & stepmother trio is responsible, and they were waiting for PnB Rock in the parking lot of Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in LA. The theory that the death was connected to a social media post or PnB Rock’s girlfriend is ruled out.
