Everything Gunna requested for backstage, everything he was denied, and more…

Heydi Ortiz, Managing Editor

This year the Nest will be welcoming a popular artist by the name of Gunna to be the main act at Oz Fest. Student Government paid a whopping $125,000 for the artist to perform at UNF for a total of 60 minutes. The concert is paid by the Activity & Service fees.

“This year, OZ Fest is bigger than ever. This is the first year that UNF ranked as a national, instead of a regional, best college by US News and World Report. We want to live up to this national ranking by focusing on the student experience and bringing bigger, better, events to campus. We are very excited to welcome Gunna and Rich the Kid to the Nest,” said the Director of Student Engagement, Chris Warren.

In addition to being paid thousands, here’s a list of everything the rapper requested for backstage (plus everything he was denied).

  • 20 Chicken wings
  • 40 Chicken Tenders
  • Family size Popeyes chicken (assorted with white and dark meat)
  • Two mashed potatoes
  • Double order of biscuits
  • Two wedges
  • Assorted fresh cut fruit
  • Assorted small bags of Lays chips
  • 24 bottles of spring water
  • Two bottles of Pineapple Fanta
  • Assorted fruit juices 
  • 8 Red Bulls (4 regular and 4 Yellow edition)
  • 12 cans of Coke

The rapper will get almost everything he wants, but among the list of things denied were one bottle of Moet Rosé, one bottle of Patron, two bottles of Hennessy, one box of Backwoods Mild Cigars, and two boxes of Sweet Aromatic Backwoods.
