Controversies

On December 29, 2019, Baton Rouge rapper Tec claimed Gunna was on an episode of Crimestoppers the day before and was working with the police and “snitching on criminals”. Gunna denied the accusations by Tec and commented “you better do the history” to prove it was not him. Tec also claimed that Young Thug‘s clothing brand, SPIDER, copied his clothing brand, Spider Nation. Tec believed that it was “stealing his image”.  People claimed that the person who said “it was him, Officer” on Crimestoppers was Gunna.

On June 8, 2020, gunshots were fired during the filming of the official music video for fellow labelmate Lil Keed‘s song “Fox 5”, in which Gunna was featured. The song was released four days later, on June 12, and appears on the former’s second studio album, Trapped on Cleveland 3 (2020). The shooting resulted in two people with non-life-threatening injuries. The following day, Gunna and Young Thug confirmed that they were the ones shooting to make a scene for the video, and that nobody needed to worry about it.
