In this week’s episode of “You Should Know,” Billboard sat down with rapper Gunna to get to know a bit more about him.
Gunna, who grew up in Atlanta, reveals that his first-ever job was working in a clothing store. He began making music at around the age of 14, and recalls that the first CD he ever bought was probably a mix CD.
“If I could collaborate with any artist, I would want it to be like Marvin Gaye,” Gunna shares. “Someone like who they wouldn’t expect me to do a feature with, like very iconic.” He also divulges that an artist people might be surprised to find out he listens to is Sade.
Asked why people should listen to his music, the “Drip Too Hard” rapper replies, “Because I make all types of music. It’s like different moods, so whenever you in one mood, I got a song for that. And then you in a down or other type of mood where you really just wanna chill, I got that type of music, too.”
As for what inspires his music, Gunna says that it is his voice. “When I heard my voice, like listen to myself playing it back-to-back, I just want to always perfect it,” he adds.
