In court now. I am told by the mother of Deamonte Kitchens – Yak Gotti – that someone tried to stab him Saturday in the Fulton County jail.

The 29-year-old rapper, born Deamonte Kendrick, was hit with snitching allegations after he was denied bond in the massive RICO case against dozens of YSL members and affiliates. According to AllHipHop, prosecutors objected to Gotti’s release, claiming he was a threat to potential witnesses. They pointed to the rapper’s criminal history, including his alleged involvement in the death of Donovan “Big Nut” Thomas. Young Thug. He seemingly responded to these accusations back in June via his IG Story where he wrote, “2015 my brudda never did a day in jail because I claimed my shit,” adding, “I did 4 years fed with no tears! Stop the [cap].”
A lot of talk about how Yak Gotti snitched. It's not quite that simple. He plead guilty when he and YSL Duke were caught with rifles a few years ago as they were on the way to a retaliation hit after a fight at Magic City.
If pleading guilty is snitching, that's a high standard.
