Gunna vs. R. Kelly arguments have dominated social media. This follows the release of a video showing an Atlanta nightclub grinding to a halt as Gunna’s new song was played.
Fans flocked to Twitter to voice their concerns, questioning why the artist was being shunned. They emphasized that, despite his decades of sexual misbehavior and jail, people still listened to and defended R. Kelly. Some felt that condemning Gunna while supporting other musicians with dubious backgrounds was hypocritical. Some consider people like Kodak Black and Dr. Dre to be legendary, despite their controversies. Despite his plea deal in the YSL RICO case, they believed Gunna deserved to be loved and supported.
However, there were others who defended R. Kelly and were disgusted by the comparison between Gunna and the disgraced R&B singer. They argued that Gunna being labeled a snitch was different from R. Kelly’s alleged predatory behavior towards women. R. Kelly has been behind bars since June 2022 and was convicted in a federal sexual assault case. He received a 20-year sentence. Gunna, on the other hand, was released from jail in December. The rapper pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge as part of the YSL indictment.

Gunna’s recent release from incarceration might have been good for him on a personal level. However, it certainly hasn’t shielded him from intense scrutiny. In fact, he’s currently facing heightened criticism. This stems primarily from his alleged betrayal by snitching on Young Thug. Of course, he vehemently denies these allegations, even after accepting a plea deal in the trial. Numerous former friends and collaborators have distanced themselves from Gunna. Boosie Badazz even said that he wouldn’t entertain a collaboration with the artist. Apparently, he wouldn’t do it even for a staggering sum of $1 billion.
Moreover, Lil Gotit recently took to Instagram to vent his frustrations about Gunna. He boldly declared that it’s the end for the 29-year-old rapper. These sentiments seem to align with a video that has gone viral on Twitter. The video, which is linked above, showcases an Atlanta nightclub coming to a screeching halt when Gunna’s verse in 21 Savage’s track “Can’t Leave Without It” is played. The video was subsequently shared on Instagram.
