From the venue:Having dominated majority of 2018, the critically acclaimed Atlanta rapper topped multiple “best of” lists including New York Times, Pitchfork, and Complex and more. Drip Harder, the Gold certified mixtape released with Lil Baby, hit #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart which included the double platinum single “ Drip Too Hard .” Collaborating with some of the biggest artists in the world including Travis Scott, Mariah Carey, Drake, Usher and more, there seems to be no stopping the new age rap star. College Park, Georgia-based rapper Gunna became interested in music and rapping as a hobby in his early teens, but got more serious about the possibility of a career in Hip Hop around 2016, when he was introduced to Atlanta MC Young Thug by a mutual friend. The two developed a friendship, and before long Gunna was in the studio hopping on Young Thug's track "Floyd Mayweather," where he lent a verse alongside rap superstars Gucci Mane and Travis Scott. That feature was enough to jettison Gunna into relative fame, and he became affiliated with Young Thug's "YSL". By late 2016 he'd released the Drip Season mixtape and followed it with Drip Season 2 in the summer of 2017 and toured the US with Playboi Carti. In the fall of 2017 he released a collab EP with producer Wheezy titled Drip or Drown which has had great streaming success. Gunna's Drip Season 3 was executive produced by Metro Boomin and features Young Thug, NAV, Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert.
