Gunna is coming home.

The Atlanta rapper has been released from prison after pleading guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge in the Young Slime Life RICO case.

The “pushin P” hitmaker negotiated a plea known as an Alford plea on Wednesday (Dec. 14) because it was his best interest, while at the same time maintaining his innocence towards the same charge. Gunna was sentenced to five years — with one year commuted for the time he’s already served. The four-year remaining balance on his sentenced has been suspended and he will have to do 500 hours of community service.

In a statement, Gunna claimed that he did not think of YSL as a gang when his rap career began to pop off in 2016. He only focused on the entertainment aspects of the brand.

“While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way,” the rapper said in the statement.

He added, “I love and cherish my association with YSL music, and always will. I look at this as an opportunity to give back to my community and educate young men and women that ‘gangs’ and violence only lead to destruction.”
