Champaign’s own Gatson — who we featured back in February— is back with a single ahead of his upcoming project, Draft Day.

Produced by TheLetterLBeats, “Draft Day Prelude” serves as a dedication to the project Gatson has been waiting to release for most of this year.

He raps, “they say I’m oh so underrated / I came up, elevated my city / we ‘bout to make it, this is the dedication.” You can stream “Draft Day Prelude” on Audiomack below, where it has racked up over 4,000 plays in the last couple days. It should be on all platforms soon.
