It has clearly been the year for Atlanta rappers even into the fresh new year, we have had so much heat coming out of the ATL and Yung Gunna is the latest to drop some heat. The Georgia native came out with “DS3” which was his most highly anticipated mixtape to date, recording over 264,000 plays since he released it on Soundcloud. The 24 year old really hit the rap scene while in the recording studio with Future and Migos where he put down his most notable single “Phase”.
