The Rundown : G.U.N.
Post Malone has opened the golden gates for the Dallas music scene to prosper on a national scale. The Triple D now have the world at their doorstep and one artist by the name of G.U.N. is making huge waves in the city. He caught our attention with his profound presence in front of Dallas packed out "Summer Fest", which featured the likes of Travis Scott, Fredo Santana, Playboi Carti.
Since then, G.U.N. has been on the rise in the Dallas music scene and beyond. He has released an EP with Dallas producer, FranchiseDidIt and linked with the likes of Rizzoo Rizzoo, Joey Fatts, J Stash and more. His rambunctious sound has drawn the eyes and ears of many and we are saying it will be more people paying attention to him at the rate that he's going now.
