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 was soon signed to Young Thug's YSL imprint. By late 2016, he'd released the Drip Season mixtape and followed it with Drip Season 2 in the summer of 2017, while working toward a full-length with producers Brick Beats and Playmakers' Turbo, among others. Third mixtape Drip Season 3 appeared in 2018, featuring guest appearances from Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, Metro Boomin, and others.
