Rise to Stardom
Gunna began his journey as a rapper at a very young age. Growing up in Atlanta, he was influenced by the hardships that his family had to face.

It featured some of his earliest hits, including “Hardbody”, “We Live This”, “Faded”, “I’m Not a Criminal”, and others. While these did not top any charts, his inherent talent caught the attention of hip-hop heavyweights. He was then introduced to rapper Young Thug by King Troup. This was a life-changing for him as Young Thug took him under his wing and signed him to ‘YSL Records’ in 2016. This led to his first collaboration as he was featured in Young Thug’s hit “Floyd Mayweather”.
His first mixtape under YSL Records, ‘Drip Season’ was released on October 14, 2016. Although it was not a chart-topper, there was no denying the gritty lyrics and rapping style of the young rapper. ‘Drip Season 2’ was released on May 11, 2017.
