Album Review: Gunna's Final Instalment of Drip Season.
Following a year of social media tease, leaks, and excerpts, Gunna finally drops the last installment of ‘Drip Season’ AKA DS4EVER. As expected, it does not disappoint. The nineteen-track album features a heavy dose of artists such as Young Thug, Future, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, and more.
Gunna puts spotlight on producers which were on-board for the project. The album is filled with fast-hitting hi-hats, crisp snares, and a euphoric melody from producers like Wheezy, Metroboomin, 808Mafia, Playmaker and Mike will made it. The Atlanta rapper mentions his recent beef with Freddie Gibbs, hangs with Chloe Bailey and boasts about his wealthy lifestyle. This brings us to the question, is DS4 worth it? What’s the downside? The best and the worst tracks?
Is the album worth it?
It’s safe to say the album is filled with hardly any tracks to skip. Gunna comes off with seductive vocals, catchy verses and on occasion, he mentions personal problems on the track ‘Livin Wild’. Fans talk about what "P" stands for in the song and across the album. As per Gunna’s Instagram story when he says "Pushin P," he is referring to "playa" or "player."
Essentially, "pushin p" is about delivering strategy, elegance, and swagger to your day-to-day life while being authentic to yourself.
The best and the worst tracks.
It’s tough to pick any favorite tracks. In my opinion, every track is fire in its own way. We hear different and unique sound in each song. To pick few, ‘Poochie gown comes as a beef track where he mentions his latest feud with Freddie Gibbs. The hook to “25k jacket” alone makes it one of the top songs on this album. 'Too Easy' featuring Future and Roddy Rich is one of the most popular song of the album. Wheezy production on the song made it a hit. In total Wheezy appeared on 7 tracks in the album. Not to forget, all the Young Thug featured track in the album are undoubtly fire. It is tough to say any song on the album is ‘Bad’ or a big skip. Personally, this is my favorite Gunna album since DS3.
What’s more to know?
Although we hear Gunna bragging about the lavish life and expensive jewelry, DS4 opens with simple acoustic guitar and soft vocals. Lyrically, Gunna has talked about his personal growth and success that has got him to this point where he is at. The track ‘you & me’, features Chloe Bailey who was rumored to be dating Gunna few months ago.
Gunna successfully dropped a project which will create a mesmerizing effect on the listeners. Make sure you listen to the full album if you haven't already. DS4 is the perfect ending to the Drip Season series.
