Disney executives seemed to acknowledge on Friday that they made a misstep of their own in almost immediately firing Mr. Gunn in the aftermath: At the time, Guardians” cast members condemned the decision as an overreaction to the mob mentality” of the internet.

These tracks are delivered in the Atlanta style of obsessively repeated single melodies, whose seductive monotony enhances the sense of a downbeat quest for meaning. Gunna deploys another Atlantan innovation, the ad-libs of Migos where the final word of each line is emphatically repeated, but gives it a powerful spin. He stretches the ad-libs out and overlaps them, letting them spill into the next bar: the effect, as on the nominatively deterministic track Outstanding, is an impressionistic swim of words, further blurred by his smudged enunciation. Gunna is known for championing the slang term drip” to describe his ever-stylish garms; his delivery chimes perfectly with the aquatic metaphor.

The entire process seems vague and likely ill-equipped to authenticate a long string of potential partners. Fortunately, the mentor and protégé have innate chemistry that lets their back-and-forth, 16-bar verse sound immaculate.
Gunna followed up on the success of Drip Harder with the release of his debut album, Drip or Drown 2 , in February of 2019. Jeff will be playing guitar and serving as musical director for Emmanuel Jal performance at 10pm.
