Gunna’s ‘DS4EVER’ provides a well-needed trend to start 2022


- Advertisment -

Gunna’s awaited project, ‘DS4EVER’ released and slightly underperformed from expectations but still delivered some memorable moments that has everyone “pushing p”.

Even though The Weeknd dropped his album, ‘Dawn FM’ the same week, Gunna still made waves with ‘DS4EVER’, proving his status as a unique and special artist of the current generation in hip-hop.

Before this album, Gunna hadn’t released a solo album since 2020. He was featured on ‘Slime Language 2’, a collaboration with Young Stoner Life, and Young Thug. 

His last project, ‘Wunna’ raised expectations for his next project and it was evident that he was trying to raise the bar, even down to the smallest details.

The marketing of  ‘DS4EVER’ was excellent. He was dropping off snippets left and right, raising the excitement for this project more than anything he had produced before.

That hype has led some to say that this is the best album of the year so far and to be quite honest, they may be right. 

There are not a lot of albums to choose from, as it is halfway through the first month of the year, but it should be at the top for quite a while.

That should be credited to the delivery, flow and production of this album. Gunna has a unique sound that can’t be duplicated. 

If you like the storytelling raps of J. Cole or Kendrick Lamar, he isn’t that. You listen to Gunna for a good time.

The drilling and melodic beats paired with Gunna’s catchy hooks of his high-pitch and heavily processed voice is a stylistic choice that fits the purpose of his music. He does a great job of getting you hyped up and this is what this album did.

That being said, it still isn’t that great. The things Gunna raps about are not relatable in any kind or type of way. 

That type of rap is appealing because it’s easy to listen to, but we’ve all heard bars about money, cars and girls.

It’s not meant to be deep music but posed to be more of the enjoyable, party music. People have different types and this might not appeal to you, but I suggest giving it a chance. 

The album does not change the rap game but adds to what’s there. Don’t go listening to this album expecting anything more than that.

‘DS4EVER’ could have had more but served as a pretty good album to start off 2022 with a bang. 

This album has a run time of 55 minutes with 19 songs and only nine found a home in my library.

There was a lengthy list of features on this album, including Chloe Bailey, Chris Brown, Lil Baby, Future, Roddy Rich, Young Bleu, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage and Kodak Black. 

21 Savage certainly had the best feature on the project on the strongest song of the project, ‘thought i was playing’. Chloe Bailey and Young Thug also had memorable performances. 

The second-best song on the project has to be ‘pushin p’, which has caused an internet sensation with his self-coined term. His other song with Young Thug, ‘Mop’, also deserves to be on the podium. 

Overall, this album is a great way to start off the year and has its name for the best rap project of 2022 so far. It wouldn’t be very ‘P’ of you to not give it a chance.
