Young Thug – Slime Season 2
2014 was the year of Young Thug. It was. His ascension via inability to maintain any semblance of normality, be it sartorially, socially or sonically, has created what is probably the greatest enigma rap has ever seen. How many can claim to be hard as fuck, ride in pussy’s like strollers, all while wearing a dress? Slime Season 2 continues the reign. His flow and voice are becoming more fluid and amorphous than the lean his body runs on. If there’s a peak for his songcrafting abilities, it has yet to be determined. Three mixtapes into the year and there’s no sign of slowing down. 2015 will be the year of Young Thug. It just will.
Standout Track: Thugger very rarely opens up like he does on “Never Made Love” Aside from hook vocals from Rich Homie Quan, who’s able to sound sullen, triumphant, and hellaciously stoned within the confines of just a few syllables, Young Thug gets personal and it’s hard to take. Dude grew up in one of the worst neighborhoods in the U.S., so friends and family in caskets aren’t anything new. But tedium doesn’t make it any easier to handle.
