Young Thug is one of rap’s most polarizing figures — you either love him or you hate him. But either way you cut it, it doesn’t matter to Thug. This 23-year-old Atlanta rapper has love for himself, and it’s evermore evident in the visuals for his latest song, “Best Friend,” which finds Thug hanging out hooking up with his himself, being his own driver, and uhh, meal, too. Craziness. Frankly, if you’ve been paying attention you’d know Thug has yet to disappoint (musically, speaking) and it appears as though his forthcoming mixtape with London on da Track, Slime Season, won’t either. Check out the visuals for Young Thug’s “Best Friend” after the jump.
After dropping his all-around great retail mixtape Barter 6 a few weeks back (read my review here) Young Thug returns with some new heat. “Love Me Forever” finds Thugger reunited with ATLien producer London on da Track and although it’s uncertain whether or not this track will appear on Thug’s forthcoming debut album HiTunes this track is sure to give fans something to enjoy in the meantime. Check out Young Thug’s “Love Me Forever” after the jump.
