On Monday (December 19), Akademiks posted a DM with Gunna's lawyer Steven Sadow, in which Sadow emphasizes that the viral video showing the YSL rapper stating YSL is a group in his plea agreement will not harm Young Thug or anybody else.
“Doesn’t effect anyone but my client,” Sadow said. “Out of court statements at a plea cannot come into evidence against someone else.”
When Ak questioned if Gunna's statement would be considered if he was summoned to testify, Sadow stated that his client would use the Fifth Amendment. "Yes, but he'll take the 5th and not testify," he explained.
The DMs arrive just days after 6ix9ine went live with Akademiks, where the "Gummo" rapper claimed Gunna was a snitch for accepting an Alford plea agreement. “Bro the Alford Plea is state for telling, n-gga. You telling, n-gga.”
He continued to read the terms of Gunna's deal, noting that pleading the Fifth Amendment is apparently only permissible for self-incrimination if subpoenaed - not for questions about others.
“‘If called by any party in this case, you will testify truthfully, but reserve your right to assert your Fifth Amendment privilege against self incrimination,’ 6ix9ine read from the deal. “MEANING you could plead the fifth only if it’s incriminating yourself!”
Wack 100, on the other hand, is not convinced and has maintained that Gunna is a snitch. Wack addressed Akademiks' DMs with Sadow in an Instagram post on Monday, saying that no matter how you frame it, Gunna told.
“@akademiks Stop bro … His statements were clearly on the RECORD … And the whole ‘DEFENSE’ was #YSL IS NOT I REPEAT IS NOT A GANG JUST A RECORD LABEL,” Wack wrote.
“YOU HIM OR THEM CANT REWRITE THE LAWS OF #SNITCHING. CO-OPERATION WITH THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY MAKES U A CO OPERANT WHICH EQUALS #Telling”
