“Call me insane, I’mma pour up a pint. Try to take away the pain, got me going through some things” Gunna describes through a fairly classy instrumental that involves this clashing ride cymbal as the piano plays in a vibrant, almost jazz influenced style. It is a delightful introduction to the 16-track behemoth that in a valiant effort, has little to no features on the project. The first five tracks are strictly voiced by Gunna which in retrospect was a smart decision. The singularity works in his favor as it establishes a solid effort and connection to his vocal flexibility and the way that he can manipulate the sound to wrap around the listener.
The mixing of quick blasts and assaults to the unhurried and steady workings on Drip Season 2 is a near perfect world that Gunna forms with the help of his army of producers that show credits here. From Smoke to Pi’erre Bourne, there is a severe level of features as well that help Gunna out. Ranging from YSL Records head Young Thug, Playboi Carti, Duke, and even Offset in a range of creating a superstar line-up of modern hip-hop power.
Uplifting throughout, Drip Season 2 is hopeful and reflects a solid mirror image of the real recognizable nature of Gunna. He works to cover a large amount of ground with the near hour long tape and is able form a powerful connection with the progressive state of personal expression and true drip fashion.
