After dropping a slew of mixtapes, making a few fashion statements, and pioneering a brand new style of rap, Young Thug is finally ready to give fans what they’ve been waiting for– his debut album.
Yes, you read correctly. Although the Atlanta rapper has put out over fifteen mixtapes, all of which may have sounded like albums, So Much Fun is being labeled as Thugger’s debut to the mainstream. Obviously, the “Best Friend” artist has already paid his dues in the game by creating his own lane both lyrically and fashion-wise. Not to mention the fact that he has inspired a new generation of young rappers by the likes of fellow Atlanta natives, Lil Baby and Gunna. However, many are relying on So Much Fun to be the project that finally earns Young Thug the recognition he rightly deserves.
Aside from dropping “London,” arguably his most successful single to date, the Slime Language rapper hadn’t given us too much of an idea on what listeners should expect from SMF. In fact, we hadn’t even seen a tracklist up until the date of its release. What we got was a bouquet of 19 star-studded, artfully produced songs highlighting all the potential and originality everyone has come to expect of the 28 year old superstar. Boasting features from the biggest names in hiphop, including J. Cole, Lil Baby, Lil Uzi, 21 Savage, Quavo and more, there was absolutely no way Thug could have taken a loss on this project.
Did we mention the album clocks in at over an hour of music? You better get to work, listen below.
