The consensus was that Gunna wouldn't be able to outrun allegations he snitched when he took a plea deal and walked out of jail while Young Thug and the rest of the YSL remained locked up.
But that hasn't been the case. Wunna has a hit album and hit single.
At the same time, Young Thug's album has put up disappointing numbers. And Gunna's old buddy Lil Baby, who cut ties with Wunna, is canceling tour dates amid sluggish sales.
Here is Twitter's reaction to Gunna soaring while Young Thug and Lil Baby struggle.
damn so Gunna was the reason they had sold out dates… https://t.co/UCpn9XoljS— Lord (@praiselordtay) July 14, 2023
Gunna's 3rd week outsold Young Thug's 2nd week by 15k...— Hip Hop By The Numbers (@HipHopNumbers) July 7, 2023
44k (No. 8) - Gunna - a Gift & a Curse
29k (No. 18) - Young Thug - BUSINESS IS BUSINESS
I'm about even on both of them at the moment
Which one have you been spinning more? pic.twitter.com/sbe5Rdqumi
