Young Thug dropped off his highly anticipated mixtape-slash-album JEFFERY at Midnight. The album’s cover art was revealed shortly before, and you know it stirred up some feelings. This is familiar territory for Thugger, you’ll recall his Barter 6cover caused controversy as well, although it’s not quite as risky as Thugger wearing a blue, frilly skirt.
Album artwork aside, the project is already in rotation and a stand-out upon first listen is the track dedicated to “Floyd Mayweather” (although that song title is irrelevant to the content), featuring Gunna and Gucci Mane. The beat is pure fire, and it might be because some of Thugger’s best collaborators connected together on it– Wheezy, TM88, Goose and Thugger himself. It’s got the melodic temperament that Thug beats have become known for, with wavering synths, stammering hi-hats and bursts of drums. Take a listen.
