The rapper will reportedly be released from prison at an unspecified date.
Gunna had been caught up in a sweeping gang indictment against him, fellow rapper Young Thug and several other alleged members of the alleged criminal street gang Young Slime Life.
Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Mark Winne reports that Gunna, whose real name is Sergio Kitchens, faced a judge and entered a negotiated plea, known as an Alford plea.
He pleaded guilty on one charge due to it being in his best interest, while still maintaining his innocence on the same charge, according to the outlet.
The charge was one count of conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corruption Act.
