Three cities. Thirty rappers. One track. The Rap Monument. Full track coming soon. We’ve already heard “bricks” (verses) from Pusha T, Danny Brown, Nipsey Hussle, Problem, Raekwon, Vado, Go Dreamer, Flatbush Zombies, and Meyhem Lauren. But today Noisey is dropping off perhaps their most controversial entry to the fold in Atlanta’s Young Thug. Quickly glancing over some online comments it’s clear that many don’t feel Thugger should be on The Rap Monument, but frankly it wouldn’t be a proper representation of the current hip-hop climate without a name like Young Thug in the mix. He’s made a huge splash in the rap game over the last year and not having him here would be a detriment. Whether you love him or hate him, peep Young Thug’s The Rap Monument brick along with A$ton Matthews after the jump.

The visuals presented in “Simple Minds” find Julian in the same headspace as in “Sophisticated Thoughts” as well as he busks around NYC, simply enjoying life, and being carefree. If the instrumental to “Simple Minds” sounds familiar that’s because it’s Nas’ “Nas Is Like” from 1998. Peep the visuals to Julian Stephen’s “Simple Minds” freestyle after the jump.
