Metro Boomin is a natural matchmaker when it comes to placing artists on his beats. But he really went dumb when he picked Gunna to be on “Space Cadet.” At this point, Gunna is the person you call up when you want your shit to sound astronomical, and he floats accordingly all over this track. The beat flips from sounding bright—like chirpy dashboard controls in a rocket—to a darker vibe, almost like someone accidentally hit an emergency button on said dashboard. Through it all, Gunna stays true to the tone and cadence that has made him one of rap’s most desirable features. By being himself, Gunna gifted Metro with one of the best moments on the album. —Kiana Fitzgerald
