Gunna returned home on Thursday night (Sept. 19) as the headliner to the second installment of the Billboard Hip-Hop Live concert series, powered by Mountain Dew. Prior to the Drip God taking the jampacked Buckhead Theatre stage, DJ Ohso and Jinx, who doubled as host for the night, warmed up the crowd of nearly 1,000 crazed fans with some help from Paige Shari.
Young Gunna stepped out to a warm reception from those in attendance for the free show with a white jacket and denim blue jeans on, which were fittingly complemented by his Hermès belt. What makes this concert series unique, is the fact that fans in the building and those viewing via live stream can participate in controlling the show with song requests by using the #MtnDewCrwdCntrl hashtag.
After kicking off with Drip or Drown 2 cuts "Wit It," "Pedestrian," and "Outstanding," the first request came in the form of Slime Language standout "Chanel (Go Get It,) sans guest appearances from Thugger and Lil Baby. The Wheezy-produced "Baby Birkin" would draw one of the loudest ovations of the night, as fans belted out every lyric right back at Gunna.
