Gunna Predicts His 2019 Freshman Inclusion Will "Go Down In History"

Gunna‘s inclusion on XXL’s 2019 Freshman List might seem incongruous given his “sophomore” appeal encompassing 2-years as a member  hip-hop’s elite. Yet, in the spirit making good on past omissions, Gunna had to be placed somewhere on the timelines, for the sake posterity. With that said, the YSL rapper doesn’t at all mind concealing his sophomore status to a wider audience, so long as his name is listed within the annals time.

“If you make it here, it’s like you going on the right path,” Gunna says during his ficial 2019 XXL Freshman Interview. “So you know to just take this and run with it, you know what I’m sayin? This gon’ go down in history. So it means a lot to me… The Freshman] list is big to me. I feel like it is like a stamp for artists on their grind, coming up. It’s like, a clarification to me.”

So, regardless where he stands on the “up-and-up,” Gunna is eternally grateful for his inclusion amidst the 2019 class Blueface, Comethazine, Tierra Whack, Dababy, Lil Mosey, Roddy Rich, YBN Cordae, YK Osiris, Rico Nasty, and Megan Thee Stallion. The full list was announced on June 20th, whereas the solo freestyle sessions are going to press, piecemeal, within half-a-day each other, on average.
