Gunna, the Atlanta rapper who recently pleaded out of the YSL RICO case, resurfaced in the public eye, revealing a transformed appearance during an NBA playoff game in Miami.

At the Kaseya Center, during Game 6 between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics on Saturday night (May 27), fans couldn’t help but notice Gunna’s noticeably slimmer physique. Pictures of the artist had surfaced earlier this month, showcasing his post-jail weight loss and prompting comparisons to Gucci Mane.
Sporting a black sleeveless T-shirt and floral pants, Gunna showcased the results of his dedicated workout regime while enjoying the thrilling Eastern Conference Finals contest from courtside seats. Fans and onlookers inside the arena were treated to an intense showdown, with the Celtics, who were once down 0-3 in the series, managing to force a Game 7 thanks to Derrick White’s buzzer-beater.
While Gunna has not released any new material since his release, fans eagerly anticipate his next moves, including whether he will continue to represent Young Thug’s Young Slime Life collective after his plea deal. In a recent interaction on a fan page’s comments section, Gunna teased his comeback, letting followers know that he is on the way. With an unreleased song snippet accompanying the comment, fans eagerly await new music from the “Pushin’ P” rapper.
In December, Gunna pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge, resulting in his release from Fulton County Jail, where he had been incarcerated since May 2022. His plea agreement involved a five-year sentence, with one year served and the remaining four years suspended. Gunna will fulfill the suspended portion through 500 hours of community service.
Earlier this year, a link to Gunna’s music briefly appeared in Young Thug’s Instagram bio before being removed. Meanwhile, Young Thug himself remains incarcerated, as the YSL RICO trial progresses slowly through the jury selection process.
Gunna’s previous album, DS4EVER, was released in January 2022 and made an impressive debut atop the Billboard 200 chart, selling 150,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
With Gunna’s new look and hints of an imminent comeback, fans eagerly await his next musical endeavors while appreciating his dedication to personal transformation.
