Young Thug 'Punk' Fan Review: Rapper hailed as GOAT for 'album of the year'
Young Thug’s brand new studio effort is a follow-up to his 2019 debut album ‘So Much Fun’ that boasted hit singles like ‘The London’ and ‘Hot’
Out of the many new Friday releases on October 15, the music lovers also got to enjoy Young Thug’s sophomore album ‘Punk’. Following a slight delay, the Atlanta native finally dropped his latest project on leading streaming platforms. Young Thug added a couple of new features a few hours prior to the release of his new project which might have caused the delay.
The 30-year-old rapper’s brand new studio effort is a follow-up to his 2019 debut album ‘So Much Fun’ that boasted hit singles like ‘The London’ and ‘Hot’. Thug's album later topped the Billboard 200 chart as well. Speaking of Young Thug’s new album, the project was first announced in 2019 but it got delayed due to the rapper’s other commitments.
Young Thug's 'Punk' features Drake, Travis Scott
Young Thug’s Punk’ is stacked with 20 tracks with features from some of the top rap icons in the game like Drake, J Cole, Gunna, Future, Post Malone, ASAP Rocky, Travis Scott, Doja Cat, and others. It also comes with posthumous features from Juice WRLD and Mac Miller. Dropping the very first hint about ‘Punk’ in 2019, Thug told Fader magazine, “It's most definitely touching music. It's music that the world is going to embrace. [Punk] means brave, not self-centered, conscious. Very, very neglected, very misunderstood. Very patient, very authentic.”
Thug added that he wanted ‘Punk’ to reintroduce what he calls “real rap” to the world: “[Real rap is] letting people in, letting people know what you go through. Let them know that you the same.” You can listen to the full album here. Thug had also dropped a compilation album ‘Slime Language 2’ in April that comprised of 23 songs featuring Drake, Travis Scott, Future, Lil Baby, Kid Cudi, Yung Bleu, and others on the guest verses.
