About the Author

Gunner Stahl is, according to Fader, “the photographer behind your favorite rap photos.” Born and bred in Atlanta, Stahl started by taking photos of his friends, many of whom happened to be up-and-coming rappers. With hard work, Stahl broke into more mainstream opportunities. He and his photos have been featured by publications including Vice, Paper, W, Milk, i-D, and others. His photography was used as the album art for Metro Boomin’s “No Complaints” and Playboi Carti’s 2016 mixtape Playboi Carti.
