Young Thug and Gunna briefly caught up with each other for the first time since being arrested in May. The two — who were taken into custody for violating Georgia’s RICO act — were finally able to chat during a virtual court hearing on Thursday. A clip of their exchange has been shared on social media.

“Hey Wunna, you good?” Thug asked, to which Gunna responded, “Yeah, I’m good. You good?” Thugger then appeared to poke fun at Gunna’s weight loss, teasing, “You lost a little bit about that now.” The conversation came to an end soon after, as court officials noted the rappers hadn’t turned off their mics after the hearing.

Young Thug, Gunna and other members of Thug’s Young Stoner Life group are accused of being a violent street gang responsible for murders, armed robbery and other violent crimes. Gunna is believed to have a command role in the group, which prosecutors say Thug co-founded in 2012. Both rappers have been denied bond multiple times, with Thug receiving another rejection Thursday.
