When the history books open up, “Drip” will forever be associated with the meteoric and platinum rise of Gunna. Dubbed “The King of Drip” and pegged “to take over the rap world” by Interview, he generated over one billion cumulative streams and achieved one platinum and two gold certifications within a year. Now, he submerges the whole game in “Drip” on his 2019 full-length debut, Drip or Drown 2 [YSL Records/300 Entertainment], and singles “One Call” and “Speed It Up.”
Born and raised in College Park, GA, he immediately gravitated towards innovative hip-hop from the likes of OutKast, Cam’Ron, and Future. Signed to YSL Records, he famously teamed up with label boss Young Thug and Travis Scott on “Floyd Mayweather” from 2016’s Jeffery. Shortly after, he dropped the seminal mixtape Drip Season. 2017 saw him serve up the sequel Drip Season 2 and Drip or Drown. He ascended to superstardom during 2018. Drip Season 3 put up unbelievable numbers, earned Drake’s fandom, and garnered looks from Rolling Stone, GQ, Vogue, Complex, and more. Not to mention, he joined forces with frequent collaborator Lil Baby for the collaborative Drip Harder, which bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. The project yielded the platinum Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Drip Too Hard” and gold “Never Recover” [with Drake]. He teamed up with Travis Scott and NAV for the ASTROWORLD favorite “Yosemite,” Mariah Carey for “Stay Long Love You,” and Metro Boomin for “Space Cadet,” which they performed on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Plus, he participated in fashion shows for Pyer Moss, Off-White, and Yohji Yamamoto.
Now that Drip Season is underway, it’s never going to end.
