Gunna adds eight new songs to “WUNNA.”
3. ONE WATCH
Young Thug and Gunna join forces for “ONE WATCH.”
“ONE WATCH” features a beat that you can hopscotch to. Over it, Young Thug and Gunna absolutely go off! While the former sounds like he took all kinds of drugs, the latter sounds like he’s on the verge of taking a power nap. Nonetheless, the two rappers share similar opinions about women, reckless spending, violence, and more on the song.
“ONE WATCH” is missing Future…
2. DIRTY DIANA
“DIRTY DIANA” is the definition of restorative trap music.
In my humbling opinion, “DIRTY DIANA” is just as good as “NOTHING FOR FREE.” The difference between the two songs is this: The former doesn’t feature an annoying verse by NAV, the former sounds a bit smoother, the former sounds more unique, the former is a little more infectious, and the former has a better title.
Gunna and Lil Uzi Vert sound like the meanest muthaf**kas on this planet on “Relentless.”
“Relentless” sounds trap-cinematic. The song features an edgy beat, rap styles that are Teflon strong, lyrics that are ruthless, and vibes that are cold as s**t. Though Gunna and Lil Uzi Vert sound unbothered on the song, they also sound like they are willing to snap on anyone that looks at them the wrong way.
I want to hear “Relentless” on a trap Western.

My appreciation for Gunna has risen throughout the years. When I first heard a song by him, I thought he was simply another mumble rapper that people overrated. After listening to both Drip Or Drown 2 and WUNNA, I started to realize that he actually has a sound that is hard to emulate. With that being said, on WUNNA (Deluxe), the Atlanta-based artist continues to impress me with music that strangely feels therapeutic, music that is low-key gutter as s**t, music that features tons of bass, music that is catchy, music that is hypnotizing, music with solid guest appearances (Future, Young Thug, and Lil Uzi Vert all did their thing on the album), music that you should probably bump while driving down a highway with your windows down, and music that money-makers and big spenders will appreciate.
