Rapper Gunna, who was named Monday with fellow Atlanta rapper Young Thug and dozens of others in a massive gang indictment, was booked into Georgia’s Fulton County jail on Wednesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and other news outlets.

The 28-year-old rapper who’s real name is Sergio Giavonni Kitchens, is charged with a single count of conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act in the 56-count state indictment, which is aimed at alleged members of the Young Slime Life gang — which is similar to the name of Young Thug’s independent label, Young Stoner Life — and includes charges of murder, drug and gun possession, witness intimidation, carjacking, robbery, theft and drug dealing.

The indictment includes 28 total defendants affiliated with YSL, and charges them with 56 counts related to gang activity and racketeering; the indictment alleges that Gunna committed felonies including receiving stolen property and drug possession with intent to distribute.

Monday’s 88-page indictment also alleges that, Jimmy Winfrey, who was jailed for shooting at rapper Lil Wayne’s tour bus in a widely reported April 2015 incident, is a YSL member.

Gunna was one of the first artists signed to the YSL Records label, which has become a major force in the Atlanta hip-hop scene. His third album, “DS4Ever,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard albums chart.
