Chart-topping rapper Gunna graces one of our three covers. We spoke with him about his latest #1 album, “DS4EVER,” growing up in Atlanta and the way he tries to give back to the community that raised him.

"I'm starting to think about things long term," he reflects. "About being a father, a family man, and all those [things] are starting to show up for me as I get older."

As a whole new generation discovers pop-punk music, it has skyrocketed to a height in popularity never seen before. One of the artists leading the charge is jxdn. After attending a life-altering Juice WRLD concert, jxdn knew he was destined to not only make music of his own, but to use that music to change the world.

"I'd never been to a concert before," jxdn recalls. "It's so bizarre because, at the moment, I wasn't thinking anything like, 'What's gonna happen after this?' But that shit just changed my life. I really heard music for what it is that night. I thought, if Juice WRLD can do this for me, then I've gotta do this for somebody else. It started this chain reactions."

iann dior is the type of musician who ardently refuses to be placed into a box. Some days he'll be making hip-hop, other days it'll be pop-punk. It all depends on how dior feels at the moment. We spoke with the musician about his ambitions, getting sober and, of course, his tattoos. 

"I want to be the first artist to be able to dominate every genre of music," dior says. "When I go to the studio, I could want to make a pop song or a punk song. I have the right people around me to be able to do whatever I want to do, so why not experiment and see what happens? The thing is, with me hopping onto different genres, my music still sounds like me."
