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.
The recent situation between Young Thug and Lil Wayne is escalating albeit in a confusing manner. Here’s the breakdown: Lil Wayne doesn’t want to be part of Birdman’s YMCMB, Wayne’s highly-anticipated studio album Tha Carter V is put on hold, Young Thug is putting out his debut album entitled Carter 6 in tribute to Wayne, Wayne doesn’t like it and calls out Thug, Thug responds by saying he doesn’t want any problems and reiterates that the newly titled Barter 6 is a tribute to Wayne. Did you get all of that? Good. Now, T.I. decided to share his thoughts on the matter with DJ Whoo Kid. Find out in the clip after the jump.
It was just yesterday where Young Thug released two new tracks in “Halftime” and “Beat It.” The set of tracks was produced by Thugger’s go-to producer London on da Track. Today Thugger is sharing another new one in “Just Might Be.” This one is produced by one Wheezy. Kind of an ironic producer name/association given Lil Wayne’s recent discrepancies with YMCMB, the label Young Thug is currently signed to. Any who, check out “Just Might Be” after the jump.
Young Thug is perhaps best when he works with producer London on da Track (see: “Lifestyle”) and it’s no surprise he and London have been frequently collaborating over the last year. And now we’re being blessed (or cursed, depending on your stance) with a loosie cut from the two. There’s no word as to what “Cloud 9” will appear on but it’s here and it’s free, so enjoy.
With the success of “About the Money” it was inevitable that Atlanta all-stars T.I. and Young Thug would team up again. And today T.I. shares the music video for “We Want War”, which yet again features a hook, chorus, and verse from Thugger. Check out the video after the jump.
The collaboration the hip-hop world has been dying to hear has finally happened. It was only a matter of time that Young Thug, who has admitted on multiple occasions that he is a huge fan of Lil Wayne, would collaborate with his idol. Thugger is such a rabid Weezy fan that he even had plans to name his first album Tha Carter VI after Wayne’s highly decorated album series. Well, here it is: the two rappers meet on “Take Kare,” which is said to serve as the first single from the upcoming Rich Gang 2 album. Listen after the jump.
