Young Thug’s Mixtape/Album ‘The Barter 6’ may not have sat too well with me; although he has one of the most original deliveries in Hip-Hop I thought the project felt mishandled and seriously unoriginal as a result.
This new track taken from his upcoming album ‘Hy!£UN35′ (aka ‘Hitunes’), is exactly how Thugger should have been utilising his delivery all along. The Mike WiLL Made-It produced track features guitars, sporadic production pushing away from the typical Trap-sounds of ‘The Barter 6’ and Young Thug sounds absolutely crazy on it, from his delivery right down to his flow. He’s breaking free of those Lil Wayne influences that have been tied onto him.
With his recent arrest earlier this week, Young Thug is proving to be one of the most controversial rap-stars of the year, and if he sticks to this recipe in his music he may be one of the most influential too.
