The seventh edition of Life Is Beautiful will bring three days of sunny, celebratory fun to Downtown Las Vegas this weekend. This year’s lineup features some of hip-hop’s hottest stars—from Friday headliner Chance the Rapper to Lil Wayne on Saturday to Post Malone closing out the festival on Sunday. And scheduled for Friday on the Downtown Stage is none other than Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, better known as Gunna.
Hoping to extend the party one more night? Gunna’s got you covered. The Atlanta rapper performs again on Monday, September 23, at the official LIB closing party inside Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan.
Gunna’s February full-length debut Drip or Drown 2 on Young Stoner Life Records, picks up where he left off with 2017’s Drip or Drown EP. The frequent trap collaborator recruited some of hip-hop’s finest for his latest project, including Young Thug, Lil Baby and Playboi Carti. The record debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and Gunna has also been credited with helping to popularize the word “drip.”
“I always like to dress up … put on nice, expensive clothes,” Gunna told Complex in 2018. “But before it was even ‘drip,’ I used to be like, ‘swag.’ That’s what we used to call it back then. It’s just a lifestyle.”
Gunna recently teamed up with rapper Dave East for the New Yorker’s latest single, “Everyday,” and Gunna is also featured on French Montana’s brand-new song “Suicide Doors.”
What’s next? “By the age of 35, I’d like to own a nice, big house with 20 to 30 plaques,” Gunna said in a June interview with Hypebeast.com. “Ideally, diamond plaques, but surely, gold and platinum. Grammys, too, of course.”
