For me, Young Thug is one of the most vital and extraordinary artists operating today. I'm yet to convince many of my real life friends of this, and I doubt this mixtape of some of his best, most recent stuff that I put together will do otherwise. Nevertheless, if you're a fan or you're not, I highly recommend giving this a good listen. Thugger operates ostensibly within the tried-and-tested genre of trap , a style of rap characterised by rickety 808 drum hits, booming low-frequency basslines and a raw, uncompromising Southern US rap style.
All the same, Thug's delivery is stranger, warpier and weirder than even contemporaries like Future and Rae Sremmurd (who are unique in their own ways, but that's a story for another time). His loose, almost incomprehensibly sloppy style belies a love of wordplay and non-sequitur; a decimation of the typical rap rulebook that champions rhyme-scheme, storytelling and 'flow'.
As such Young Thug infuriates many a rap purist....[cut]
