Young Thug goes Punk.
Two years after announcing the title, the Atlanta rapper finally releases his highly-anticipated sophomore album. On his most personal project yet, Thugger pulls in heavy-hitters like J. Cole, Doja Cat, and Future.
Drake and Travis Scott team up on “Bubbly,” while Post Malone and A$AP Rocky join forces on “Livin It Up.” The 20 tracks also include appearances from the late Mac Miller and Juice WRLD, plus Gunna and fun.’s Nate Ruess.
Thug takes a more serious and “storytelling” approach on the follow-up to his 2019 debut So Much Fun. “The whole album is just focused on one point,” he told Complex. “It will surprise some people that I am speaking on what the youth is speaking on. I always had that mindset, like, ‘I’m not rapping about what everybody else is rapping about.’ No matter what is popping. But this time, it was just like, ‘You know what? I’m going to do it.’ Just to show ni**as I can do it.’ This sh*t is easy.”
To promote the album, Thug performed for NPR’s Tiny Desk concert and even destroyed a Rolls-Royce. This weekend, he will serve as musical guest on “SNL.”
