WUNNA is the sophomore album from rapper Sergio Kitchens, also known as Gunna. I would be lying if I said I was expecting this to be good; Gunna has shown multiple times that he is one of the most generic, lazy, and uninspired rappers out there today. He essentially makes sleeping music, but it’s so devoid of anything interesting that it would be better to listen to nothing at all. So, I didn’t have high hopes for this, and this album is pretty much exactly how I thought it would be. In a weird way I’m not disappointed with this, because I knew it wouldn’t be good. It is still aggravating to listen to, but it’s not like I’m upset that this is absolute trash. The only good songs on this project are the ones where the beat is interesting or when there’s a decent feature, which doesn’t happen very often. Some features are severely underwhelming such as Travis Scott, surprisingly. However, Gunna is the main problem with WUNNA, for he rips away a lot of the tolerable things from this. Gunna seems to put zero effort into his rapping, but it feels that he tries ever-so-slightly when he gets a guest on his song. The biggest example of this occurs on the only truly good song here, “DOLLAZ ON MY HEAD,” featuring Young Thug. Although, almost every other song here is an absolute slog, and I was so happy when the album ended. If you look at Gunna’s Instagram there’s a post with a caption that says “I work so hard on this album Mann,” which is hilarious to me, because it makes me wonder how this project would sound if he didn’t try as hard as he said he did. I just hope that one day we will be shocked by a good Gunna project that isn’t this pathetic and worthless. But one can dream...
