Atlanta rapper Gunna’s rise through the echelons of hip-hop can in part be credited to his affiliation with Atlanta MC and personal friend Young Thug, along with the electric chemistry he shares with fellow rapper Lil Baby. The rap-duo’s undeniable, on-point flow has been compared to the successful pairings of Outkast and Rich Gang, garnering millions of streams on SoundCloud and YouTube.

After featuring on Young Thug’s track “Floyd Mayweather” in 2016, alongside rap superstars Travis Scott and Gucci Mane, he was signed to Thug’s Young Stoner Life / Young Slime Life Records (YSL).

Later that year Gunna released the well-received Drip Season mixtape, with Drip Season 2 and 3 following shortly after, featuring Young Thug, NAV, Lil Baby and Lil Uzi Vert.

That same year his joint mixtape release Drip Harder with Lil Baby dropped with tracks landing them in the Hot 100 and rap charts, and he also provided vocals for Travis Scott’s “Yosemite,” making an appearance in Scott’s Nabil-directed video.

Off the back of this Gunna readied his debut studio album Drip or Drown 2, which was released through YSL Records with guest appearances from Young Thug, Lil Baby, and Playboi Carti in 2019.

Not unlike many of his peers, Gunna’s affinity for footwear and fashion is a big part of the rapper’s image, often name-dropping brands in his lyrics, and he turned some heads showcasing his impressive, diamond-strewn jewelry collection in a feature for GQ’s “On The Rocks.”

In June 14th, 1993, Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, known professionally as Gunna, is born in College Park, Georgia.


Gunna starts his music career and releases early mixtapes, gaining local recognition.

Gunna is introduced to fellow rapper Young Thug. He later got featured in Thug's song "Floyd Mayweather" alongside Travis Scott and Gucci Mane.

On October 14, 2016, Gunna releases his debut mixtape "Drip Season" through YSL Records.

The following year, he releases "Drip Season 2," which gains widespread attention.


Gunna releases the commercial mixtape "Drip Season 3," featuring notable guests; Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Lil Durk, Nav, Metro Boomin, and Lil Yatchy, while the deluxe edition also includes Lil Uzi Vert, Young Jordan, Young Thug, and Lil Baby.

Gunna and Lil Baby also collaborate on single "Drip Too Hard" on September 12th.


Gunna releases the album "DS4EVER" and continues to collaborate with various artists, maintaining a strong presence in the hip-hop and rap scene.

However, in May 2022 Gunna and Young Thug find themselves among the 28 individuals linked to YSL Records facing charges under a 56-court RICO Act. On May 11th, Gunna voluntarily surrenders to the authorities. Subsequently, in December, he pleads guilty and receives a five-year prison sentence, only to be released on the same day.


Five months after his release from prison, Gunna releases track "Bread & Butter."

On his 30th birthday, he announces his new album "A Gift & A Curse," and releases it the next day, June 15th.
