Gunna has revealed that he’s planning to make a comeback on the music side after laying low following his release from jail in the YSL RICO case.
The Atlanta native has largely remained quiet since securing his freedom in December through a plea deal after spending roughly seven months behind bars.
A Gunna fan page posted an unreleased snippet on Instagram this week, and the rapper himself hopped into the comments section to let fans know that his return is imminent.
“I’m OTW,” he wrote along with his signature blue P emoji.
The comments section was flooded with fans calling for Gunna to drop a new project this year.
“We beeen waiting man drop us a album,” one person wrote, while another begged: “Wunnnnaaaaaaaaaa plss DROPPP I BEGGGGG!”

Gunna has yet to release any new material since regaining his freedom and many fans are wondering whether he’ll continue to rep Young Thug’s Young Slime Life collective after his plea deal.
The “Pushin’ P” rapper pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge on December 14 and was subsequently released from jail.
His plea meant he was sentenced to five years with one served. The remaining four-year sentence was reportedly “suspended” so Gunna will serve the rest in the form of 500 hours of community service.
“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,” Gunna told WSB-TV in a statement.
“My focus of YSL was entertainment — rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and ‘glorified’ urban life in the Black community.”
A link to Gunna’s music briefly popped up in Young Thug’s Instagram bio earlier this month before being removed. As for Thugger, he remains in jail with the slow-moving YSL RICO trial still in the jury selection process.
Gunna’s last album, DS4EVER, arrived in January 2022 and debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 150,000 album-equivalent units sold in the first week.
