With Young Thug on the road with Travi$ Scott for the Rodeo Tour Thugger is receiving exposure to new audiences. And as a result he and his team are leaking some new tunes. Two to be exact. The pair of “Halftime” and “Beat It” are produced by Thugger’s go to producer of the moment London on da Track. No wonder as to whether or not the tracks will appear on Young Thug’s Carter 6 album. Listen to both cuts after the jump.
It’s difficult to say anything that hasn’t already been said before, as we’ve had exactly 20 years to process the greatness that is Nas’ 1994 debut, Illmatic. Basically everything that needs to be said has already been said. Without even hearing a single beat, sample or rhyme from the album, you already know what Illmatic is. And with 20 years under its (championship) belt the acknowledgement of its greatness is brought right back up on its anniversary, including the release of director one9’s Nas: Time Is Illmatic, a documentary film that chronicles the circumstances leading up to the groundbreaking record.

Of course, this was quite a daunting task for us seeing as there’s easily more than 20 incredible, groundbreaking lyrics on Illmatic. But we tried our best. After the jump!
