One of the cool things about hip-hop is that when a particular rapper makes it big, they often elevate others in their orbit to the mainstream. Such is the case with the young Georgia rapper Gunna, who has burst into the limelight as a member of the YSL roster. YSL, of course, is the imprint of the game-changing — and hip-hop norm-challenging — rapper Young Thug, who has exploded in popularity over the past few years.
Now, Gunna is out on his own tour in support of a proper debut album, Drip or Drown 2
, which was executive produced by Young Thug and dropped in February. Fans of that woozy, new school Southern rap sound will not want to miss Gunna as he comes to town supporting his excellent and well-received debut.
$25, Tue May 7, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
