You can’t deny it, any hint at a new album from a YSL artist will get any casual or hardcore hip-hop fan excited. The same goes for Younger Stone Life Records’ Gunna. On October 14, 2016, Gunna released his debut mixtape Drip Season with YSL Records, launching a highly anticipated series that would continue to develop and push his sound into and throughout 2022.
In Drip Season, Gunna featured the likes of Young Thug, Lil Duke, and Nechie. He followed up the project just a few months later with Drip Season 2, which again featured Young Thug but also saw Playboi Carti and Offset deliver complimenting bars on the project. Following this release and the release of these mixtapes and his debut EP Drip or Drown he emerged as a major player in the hip-hop space.
In 2018, he released his most anticipated project yet in Drip Season 3. The fourteen-track project saw features from Lil Durk, Lil Yatchy, Nav, and Metro Boomin. He eventually released a deluxe version of the project, which included three new songs. The three songs had features from Young Thug, Lil Baby, and Lil Uzi Vert. We even saw Richie Souf and Turbo hop on the production of the deluxe songs.
