Juicy J over a Dr. Luke special, made to throb a club into instant collapse. It’s like stripped down crunk with a drill kick. Nicki Minaj lavishes it. Bibby is ferocious, and spares no victims: “I’m Michael Jordan, you LeBron n*gga/In other words, you a fraud n*gga” might be one of the most shit-starting lyrics ever. H/t Craig Jenkins for that spotlight. Listen to a banger after the jump.
Take a snapshot of Young Thug, who is a new South legend in the making. It will last longer. This driven, chirpy gangster music should deter anyone from wanting to live That Life, but it sounds so excited and manic, you can’t help but wonder… This is from Mike Will Made It’s upcoming project Ransom. Listen after the jump.
Future stumbles into the Chanel store just long enough to make this song-length ad for it. Young Thug joins on this clumsy track dedicated to saying the name of the leather giant as many times as possible. Silently wishing we could listen to only the production by itself. Check the track after the jump.
What makes a summer song? It’s sweaty but never sad about it. The right summer smash makes you put the double-decker barbecue plate on your lawn chair, pour out something cool and get close to the speakers. It’s naked and unashamed, of course. The song’s gotta be loud. Not volume-wise either. You need to be able to open that sunroof, lower the windows on the highway and still annoy passersby with the bass drop. They’re great songs because they’re disposable songs. A summer jam is the wet wipe of music: refreshing as it is fleeting and oh so useful at the right time.
Load these songs into your playlist and be the DJ you always wanted for the weekend.
Gucci Mane protégé, Young Thug, carries on the scorching mixtape run by his label founder Guwop. He gets a few assists from Quavo of Migos and production from Metro Boomin. Listen after the jump.
Country rap singer Rich Homie Quan comes through with a Young Thug assist. All the squeaky hollering is unusual, alluring and poetic. The trap keeps sweetening itself for more young d-boys to enter it and re-emerge jaded. They’re all having a grand time of it. They got what you want after the jump.
This the type a song make you wanna hit someone innocent. In the best possible way. I never knew how excited I’d be to endorse a rapper named Young Thug, and yet…here we are. Gibbs also drops the scene-stealer verse.
It had to go down. Migos pays homage to their ATL roots by linking up with the new guard of Dirty South titans (Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan) as well as the old guard (Jermaine Dupri) for a remake of JD’s 2001 classic, “Welcome To Atlanta.” Produced by Murda. Read More
