The imprisonment of Gunna, Young Thug, and other YSL members has been a devastating blow to the hip-hop scene, not only because it has put a stop to their careers but also because it has sparked a discussion about rap’s legal issues. This Saturday, Gunna Fest will give Georgia, the home state of the “Drip Too Hard” star, the chance to honor him after countless fans and musicians have shown their support for the rap group and Gunna in particular.
This Friday, September 16, Gunna Day, established by South Fulton Mayor William “Bill” Edwards the previous year in recognition of the rapper’s popularity and charitable work, will be followed by Gunna Fest. The festival, which will feature free rides, food, and goods, will be held in Gunna’s honor the following day in College Park.

Similar to this year, the Gunna Day celebration was a local affair. In order to provide free clothing and food to pupils from Gunna’s former middle school, the rapper’s team built Gunna’s Drip Closet and Good Grocery Store. The 29-year-old rapper’s continued service to others while incarcerated is encouraging. It has been some time since Gunna was detained on RICO allegations in relation to YSL; he is currently awaiting trial in January and faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
