Drip Harder is a collaborative album between two young up and coming Atlanta, Georgia artists, Gunna and Lil Baby. Gunna and Lil Baby have both simultaneously grown their fan bases together by dropping solo albums this past year and collaborative tracks like “Sold Out Dates”, “At the Hotel” and “Life Goes On”.

The album has 10 songs and features Young Thug, Lil Durk, Nav, and Drake. The production is done by Turbo and featured one Tay Keith production.

The first track “Off White VLONE” features Nav and Lil Durk who, according to Gunna super fan Owen Kane, “has the best feature on the album” as he is switching off with Gunna on the hook. Lil Baby has a mediocre verse on this song which is nothing new, and Nav finishes the track off with one of the best verses on the early half of Drip Harder.

The next song is a Gunna dominated song “Business is Business” which is a decent piece of the album. It has a pleasing outer space sounding beat with a nice guitar line and has an extremely catchy hook and subpar verses from Gunna and Lil Baby.

“Belly”, which seems to be the early fan favorite on the album is another Gunna dominated song. The chord combination sounds culturally driven and has Gunna following a very nice flow that produces impressive hook verses and bridges riddled through the song. Lil Baby seems to follow Gunna’s lead and deliver similarly.

“Deep End”, the fourth song on Drip Harder is easily the least favorite of fans. It features a very uninspired beat that doesn’t seem to have a tempo at all and a terrible flow used by Lil Baby which he uses the whole entire song, which Gunna isn’t on. This is a recurring theme on this album; when Gunna isn’t in a song to support Lil Baby, his flows feel unentertaining and uninspired.

The next song on Drip Harder is “Underdog,” one of the most mediocre songs I have heard. The beat features some nice piano notes and drums and the vocals include a catchy flow being used by Gunna which leads to a catchy hook and subpar verse. Lil Baby could not follow suit and delivered probably the worst verse on the album.

“I Am”  features a lame slow beat and some good hooks from Lil Baby. Gunna underwhelms on this song for sure which means there is a cap on what the song can accomplish.

“My Jeans” features Young Thug who excites from the very first second. The beat picks up as Thug fastens his tempo which has a very nice effect. Lil Baby and Gunna both disappoint in this cut.

“Close Friends” is really giving “Deep End” a race for its money as worst song in the album. The beat is lame and adds nothing to an already lazy flow taken by Lil Baby which you are forced to listen to all song because Gunna isn’t in it.

The next song on Drip Harder is “Drip Too Hard,” with the lead single on the album. The song has had very good commercial success for good reason. The extremely catchy hook by Lil Baby carries the song but the two also do put out some pretty good verses which make for a great song.

The next and last song on Drip Harder is “Never Recover” featuring Drake who has the best vocals on the song. The beat is a nice scary instrumental done by Turbo and Tay Keith. Gunna has a nice verse and Lil Baby’s hook is good, but his verse is very unprofessional sounding and weird.

Overall the album was very disappointing. Listeners can enjoy Gunna and Lil Baby’s independent work, but thought they would deliver a much more solid product. Overall rating: 4/10.
