As Gunna waits for his RICO trial in the Young Slime Life case, Diddy is one of those trying to lift his spirits.
The Bad Boy boss called the currently imprisoned rapper recently and urged him to “keep the faith” and “remain laser-focused,” according to a video he uploaded on Instagram on Saturday (October 1).
Puff began by sending prayers and condolences to Gunna for his legal difficulties, but the DS4Ever hitmaker made it obvious he’s keeping optimistic and focused on getting out of prison.
“I’m praying, man. I’m praying,” Diddy told Gunna, who replied: “Yeah, that’s it. They gonna work. I’m doing nothing but preserving my self and keeping my mind together and getting myself right for when I’m back out there.”
“I’m sorry you going through this, though, king. You feel me?” Puff continued, with Gunna adding: “But it’s part of the journey so I have to just understand that. It’s just about climbing and refocusing and making sure I’m prepared for when I do come out.”
Diddy then launched into one of his famous pep talks, occupying the middle ground between Hip Hop mogul, pastor and therapist.
“I know you was cold before, but you know, sometimes God — that’s what he does. He takes us through these crazy journeys, man,” he said. “I know you supposed to be out here, man. I know it’s just gonna make you stronger and we getting ready for your return.
“Empower your mind every single second, stay in a high frequency. Know that it’s gonna be alright, it’s for a reason that you don’t even know about and just get ready for your return. You got some good time in there to be laser focused and do a lot of positive things and dream big and bold.”
He added: “Know that I’m praying for you and my God answers my prayers, when I put that special prayer on. And you deserve that. You’re a beautiful person, and beautiful brother and I can’t wait to see the things you do when you come out and you get back, king. I love you.”
Gunna graciously replied: “I love you too. Appreciate you for everything, king. Everything.”
