Set for launch on December 7, Skins was one the albums that X was engaged on on the time his passing. He was utterly absorbed by Skins and Bad Vibes Forever, one other potential candidate for a posthumous launch, when he departed this planet. In his personal phrases, he believed that his upcoming album was ten instances higher than ?. The XXXTentacion Foundation has simply introduced an ficial album launch celebration going down in Miami at Bayfront Park on December 6 and a few well-known friends will probably be in attendance.

Young Thug Teases "Barter 7" Cover Art

Earlier this 12 months, Young Thug mentioned that he would not launch any music for the rest the 12 months in honor his deaf brother. Clearly, that did not final too lengthy since he dropped two initiatives roughly a month aside from one another. Shortly after Lil Wayne introduced the discharge date for his extremely anticipated album Tha Carter V, Thug took to alternative to announce the sequel to his Wayne-inspired Barter 6. It could have gave the impression to be a troll at first, but it surely seems it is going to be the subsequent launch from Young Thug. Today, he took to Instagram to tease the album artwork for the undertaking.

Young Thug took to Instagram to share what could possibly be the quilt artwork for his subsequent undertaking, Barter 7. The rapper shared a photograph what seems to be an unused photograph from when he shot the quilt for Barter 6. He’s seen in entrance a pink backdrop, shirtless along with his blonde dreadlocks and a styroam cup in his hand. Whether it would find yourself being the quilt artwork appears unlikely, however a minimum of we is perhaps getting the undertaking prior to anticipated.

Following Thug’s announcement the undertaking, London On Da Track took to Twitter to share a number of pictures himself and Thugger int he studio collectively, engaged on Barter 7. “Barter 7 prior to u suppose,” he tweeted together with a photograph himself and Young Thug. We could not have a launch date for it, however hopefully, it arrives quickly.

Young Thug & London On Da Track Are In Full "Barter 7" Mode

When Young Thug introduced that Barter 7 can be arriving “in moments” final week, no person fairly knew what to make the assertion. Barter 6 is one Thugger’s greatest our bodies work so the thought a sequel sounds wonderful however Jeffery has already launched two tasks within the span a number of months. On The Rvn launched just some weeks in the past so it looks like an odd time to be specializing in a brand new mission. Regardless the questionable timing, moments have handed and we nonetheless haven’t acquired the mission however, in Young Thug time, “moments” can imply something from one second to eight years. 

Especially contemplating Hy!£UN35 continues to be absent from Thug’s discography, the Barter 7 announcement appeared bizarre. We’re clearly nonetheless excited to obtain the work although and it appears the artist is working endlessly to make that point come sooner relatively than later. He and producer London on da Track have been noticed within the studio collectively, doubtless making some extra the magic they have been identified to create. The two are in full Barter 7 mode from the seems to be the images they posted, importing a few selfies to Twitter. The producer rocks full purple apparel, doubtless impressed by the title the mission he is engaged on.

On The Rvn continues to be extraordinarily contemporary in our minds. So is Slime Language for the sake that argument. But if King Slime says he is bought a brand new piece popping out, we will take discover. Are you excited for B7?

Young Thug "On The Rvn" Review

Recently, Young Thug’s profession has existed in an odd limbo types; after 2016’s Jeffery didn’t ship the gross sales turning into Thug’s expertise, the traditionally prolific artist grew to become more and more guarded along with his output. On the Rvn, which was supposedly conceptualized earlier this month after a warrant was issued for his arrest in DeKalb County, Georgia, comes on the heels final month’s compilation tape, Slime Language. Comprised six tightly-constructed songs, half that are produced by Thug’s fan-favorite producer, London On Da Track, this EP is being applauded as a return to type.

However, this isn’t merely Thug going again to the fundamentals. Rather, it’s a stark reminder Thug’s versatility and the chameleon-like approach by which he embodies and subsequently sheds his influences. Wherefinal yr’s Beautiful Thugger Girls sat comfortably forward the curve, mixing acoustic, lure and R&B leaning manufacturing right into a futuristic album about love, this EP is a extra concerted effort in reminding the general public how far his songwriting has come. On the Rvn is Thug’s first profitable try at seamlessly bridging outdated and new vibes.

Over the final half-decade, Thug’s flows and supply have develop into extra tangible. There are nonetheless moments f-the-wall absurdity (see: Slime Language standout “Audemar”), however admittedly, there was a sure sense familiarity to his present work that doesn’t sit nicely for somebody who has in any other case been so dependably left-field; it’s straightforward to know why longtime followers and followers simply catching on could each be drawn to the infectious, freeform nature his earlier work. This familiarity has additionally shrouded his most up-to-date tasks with a sense  redundancy – everybody’s ready for the following large step. Yet, this honing craft shouldn’t be checked out as a hurdle to his creativity. His most up-to-date work, corresponding to final yr’s Super standout “Killed Before,” showcases a heightened sense execution, a refinement that has allowed him to higher show his masterful vocal vary, one that permits him to slide out and in typical type with exceeding ease. The identical finesse that made his visitor spot on Swae Lee’s “Offshore” a sprawling exhibition expertise is current right here on tracks corresponding to “Real In My Veins”.

Having lately gone on an Instagram rant about being the “drip god,” it’s clear that Thug feels underappreciated as of late. “On the Run”, “Icey” and “Real In My Veins” all cope with Thug’s function in shaping the present panorama rap. “Tell them pussy n****s check out what they carried out created,” he teases on the latter monitor, proper earlier than seething, “inform the critics that they talkin’ ‘bout the fuckin’ founder.” On that monitor specifically, Thug goes out his approach to chastise the general public – followers and critics alike, noticeably fed up with the narratives surrounding his profession. All all through On the Rvn Thug crams a number of references to each his artistic and his authorized points: “I informed her she obtained a Thug wannabe”; How the fuck am I ever gon’ go flip myself in?”. Slowly however certainly, and at all times on his personal phrases, it appears as if Thug is intent on reclaiming a profession that was threatening to slide out from below him.

The manufacturing on this 23-minute effort is uniformly nice. While London usually embodies a cushty terrain for Thug to navigate, his contributions to On the Rvn are decidedly extra experimental. On the intro, he repurposes his trademark siren to nice cinematic impact, making a whimsical backdrop for Thug to lightheartedly thumb his nostril on the regulation. “Climax”, a stirring ode to shifting on, sees London melding his acoustic guitars with an impressed pattern Shiloh Dynasty’s “Losing Interest”, with Thug animatedly beatboxing beneath. “Icey” and “Sin”, produced by Wheezy and London respectively, are strip-club prepared bangers that sound like two sides the identical coin; one is brilliant and bubbly, the opposite darkish and sinister. Supah Mario, a longtime secret weapon the YSL camp, one whose industrial run is imminent, stops by to create a rattling backdrop for Thug’s defiant efficiency on “Real In My Veins”. But it’s newcomer Stelio Phili who runs away with the perfect beat the bunch.  

As the story goes, the Stelio produced closing monitor got here to fruition with Elton John’s full blessings. After coming throughout Thug’s 2015 crossover collaboration with Jamie xx, “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)”, John went out his approach to go to Thug in Atlanta, supposedly encouraging the rapper to proceed honing his abilities as a vocalist. Upon listening to their assembly, Stelio took the initiative to assemble an instrumental impressed by the enduring singer. Not a correct duet, “High” as an alternative interpolates vocals from John’s 1972 album Honky Château – notably, from the wildly well-known hit single, “Rocket Man”. The ensuing beat is equal components lush and spacious, and the non-traditional composition was evidently an ideal match for our favourite innovator. Recorded in 2016, this spotlight is a surreal occasion Thug firing on all cylinders; the lyrics are colourful and imaginative, the vocals sway from euphoric, ethereal highs to deliberate, impassioned lows, and the cadences flit freely from conventional rap to the particular model emotive crooning distinctive to Young Thug’s music.

Where the three tracks on Hear No Evil, his chart-baiting EP from April that includes Nicki Minaj, Lil Uzi Vert, and 21 Savage, didn’t entice longtime followers or entice any curious newcomers, the options on this sudden comply with up really feel much more pure. 6LACK, the man Atlanta rapper-turned crooner featured on “Climax”, lately devoted a complete interlude to Thugger on his newest album, East Atlanta Love Letter, and feels proper at residence alongside London’s vibrant strings. His measured supply is an ideal foil to Thug’s spooling cadence; it’s an understated duet that screams untapped potential. The following minimize, “Sin,” options fellow tourmate Jaden Smith, who has sung Thug’s praises for a quantity years now. This first collaboration between the 2 showcases a pure synergy oddball vitality, one which sees Thugger shedding his common air irreverence to immediately tackle those that may even see him as a senseless womanizer:”‘You n****s do not care ’bout ladies -‘/Just shut the fuck up, yeah I am taking care loads.” Finally, T-Shyne, a YSL artist added to “Real In My Veins” two days after the EP’s launch, is a complementary addition to an already spectacular minimize.

By any and all measures, Young Thug is one probably the most constant rap acts this decade. So, positive, On the Rvn, a short, feature-heavy EP is Thug’s finest launch in over a yr, however that ought to, on no account, be an indictment on his present output. Instead, we should always have a look at this fering, along side his different latest efforts, as a testomony to his perpetually bettering craft and an indication that his second is but to come back.

Young Thug's Engineer Alex Tumay Revisits The 36-Hour Dash To Whip Up "On The Rvn"

Alex Tumay, Young Thug’s trusted right-hand engineer obtained all of the stencils for On The Rvn days earlier than he was arrested on drug expenses, aside from the Elton John sampler which he began on a number of weeks prior. When you account for London on da Track’s post-production work on every track, adopted the shock announcement Thugger made days earlier than getting arrested, Tumay and his employees actually solely had like a day and a half to whip the ultimate edits into one thing “consumable.”

The astute pressional he’s, Tumay completed his combine and grasp session with the allotted timeframe, the pushback got here from Young Thug’s authorized scenario and sequence pattern clearance points, which required time to work themselves out bureaucratically. Tumay says that past the components outdoors his management, and some minor particulars on “Climax” with 6LACK, every thing got here collectively fairly organically. 

The origin for the “Rocket Man” pattern on “High” was one the foremost plot factors Tumay outlined in his interview with Noisey. Apparently, the track began as a pipe dream two years in the past, courting again to an encounter the place Young Thug summoned the braveness to ask Elton John’s permission to pattern his well-known track. The two males shook palms, expressed mutual admiration, and that was that: the wishful path for “High” and the remaining On The Rvn was born.

Alex Tumay then swore to maintain the Elton John’s permittance a secret, till the track was Godforsakenly leaked earlier this yr, by means of no fault his personal. Check out the remaining the Noisey interview detailing the 36 hour course of that was: finalizing On The Rvn – “on the gun.”

Young Thug Releases Snake-Filled "Visualizers" For Every "Slime Language" Song

Young Thug and YSL’s new album, Slime Language, has two main visual motifs: snakes and sign language. The sign language, which started as a tribute to Thug’s “deaf brother” in the “Anybody” video, has become a go-to for Jefferey and YSL: the cover  Slime Language is a diagram “young stoner life” spelled out in American Sign.

Snake emojis have been a mainstay on Thug’s Instagram captions for a minute and Super Slimey had a snake crawling out a skull on its cover, but he took it to a new level when he sent live snakes to music publications to promote Slime Language: 

It’s all come full circle with the “visualizers” for every track on the album. Each video features ASL and the snake equivalent cool background music. The serpents crawl over boxes, chains and other snakes; one them, in the video for Scoliosis, actually eats a live mouse, which seems illegal but looks very cool. 

Every song on the album has a “visualizer,” watch them all here and “Scoliosis” below:

A Complete Catalogue Of Young Thug Leaks From 2018

Young Thug is one the most prolific artists our time. His relentless work ethic from 2012-2015 propelled him to the front his class as he effectively ran laps around both his peers and his mentors. However, after the crippling hard-drive dump that stalled Thug’s rising stock in 2015, Thug had to regroup with his camp in order to make sure such a massive leak would never again be possible. The following two years saw a new, more refined Thugger – Jeffrey as it were – where the emphasis was entirely on his increasingly sparse projects, and less on his tendencies to be a renegade.

Unfortunately, 2018 has already seen more Young Thug leaks than the past two years combined; the silver lining here is that a majority these tracks are clearly old, meant to gather dust in his unfathomably expansive vault. As Thug preps Slime Language, the YSL compilation album that may be dropping this week, the 28 leaks listed below should do more than satiate your hunger for some new Thugger. Consider this list for cataloguing purposes, we’ll leave it up to you to hunt for these rare gems. Good luck.



“I think my idol is a hater.” Rumored to be a scrapped Lil Wayne diss circa-2015 (Wayne is the only person Thug has ever referred to as his “idol”), this leak, produced by London on Da Track, sees Thug toying with an ostensibly anonymous target over an ominous beat that, at its climax, devolves into a demented build up guitars, bird calls, and heavy metal inspired vocals. This is the epitome belittling your opponent; not a real diss but a warning shot that was thankfully never necessary. At one point he even screeches that he’ll “Rick Ross y’all”– take that as you may.

“Yes Indeed (Big Ol’ Blood)”

There’s an old snippet  this song where a blonde-haired, septum-pierced Thugger is casually delivering a triple time sixteen in under 22 seconds. Once one Young Thug’s most anticipated snippets ever, “Yes Indeed” makes a strong case for 2015 being Thug’s peak. Nowadays he’s more straightforward, more readily digestible, but back then? Thugger was a true enigma. This track features some his most deadly flows and is further pro that London On Da Track is his consummate producer.

“Give You More”

A Rich Gang era leak jam-packed with all the cartoonish tics that originally made him a one–one talent. It’s hard to overstate just how sublime Thug’s melodies were during his formative years; “Give You More” serves as a quick crash course for the uninitiated

“By Myself”

Not to be confused with “Myself” or “Do it By Myself,” this is a relatively unknown leak produced by 808 Mafia. Although it’s fleeting, this is a brief glimpse at Slime Season meets Jeffrey, his old tricks being upgraded with a brand new sheen.

“Family Don’t Matter (OG)”

We’re not sure how Thug found Millie Go Lightly, but this demo version the intro to Beautiful Thugger Girls makes a great case for her talents. Millie elevates this admittedly solid reference track to a whole new level, allowing Thug to set the tone for the numerous pop ballads to follow. 

“Say My Name (feat. Dae Dae)”

We’re not entirely sure if this is a leak, but it can’t be found on any major streaming platforms. Thug’s opening passage sports a whiplash flow that would make it the best verse on any other song. But, because it’s Thugger, it’s the second verse on here that brings the house down. It’s Thug at his very best – undeniably dexterous wordplay and an inimitable flow that begs to be marveled.


It’s crazy to see how much Young Thug’s use auto-tune has developed since the days “Eww.” At times, the effect is pointed, purposefully contorting his vocals into something robotic and alien-like. But when it’s used like it is on “Ooou,” it merely adds a lush texture to his already pitch-perfect vocals. This leak – probably recorded sometime during 2017 – is a soaring ballad, full lustful declarations love, affectionate endearments that paint him as one the most romantic writers in rap (“I wanted to fuck you on the bleachers when we were in school/A n**** been dream, dream, dreamin’ on fuckin’ on you”). It also makes yet another case for London and Thug’s undeniable compatibility.

“Another Planet (feat. Lil Baby & Rylo)”

While both Lil Baby and Rylo hold their own on this elusively catchy joint, it’s Thugger’s shapeshifting vocals that ultimately bring the track full circle.  

“Showed You OG (feat. Future)”

This is the OG version the track that eventually found a home on DJ Esco’s Kolorblind, complete with an updated beat and features from A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Dej Loaf. This leak is the raw and uncut version with just Future and Thug flexing their respective pens.  

“Bust Down (feat. Meek Mill)”

At one point, snippets for this song were coming from every direction; Meek Mill and Thug aside, freakin’ James Harden was openly bumping this shit, teasing the rest us poor fools. Despite an odd sounding flaw in the beat (potentially an audio watermark by the leaker), the song entirely lives up to expectations. Thug matches Meek’s defiant energy in the best way possible – by channeling the Harambe voice to bewildering effect.

“Sake My Kids (In It For Love)”

A rough version this leak, comprised various snippets, has been floating around for a few years now. However, it’s a blessing to finally hear this incessantly teased joint in all its glory (“225 for the Stingray, that’s if you know biology” is one Thug’s best aquatic-life themed boasts to date).

“The World (I Know)”

Occasionally, Thug slips into a trance and channels the essence peak Lil Wayne, updating and refining the stylistic tics his idol for the present day. “I know the world against me,” he croons, until “against me” starts sounding like “gimmick.” It’s an indictment on the fake, the phony, the fraud – amidst a world copycats and biters, Thug feels like he’s the only true heir to the rap throne left vacant by Wayne’s premature departure.

“Fire Drill” 

“Fire Drill” is a prime example just how easily Thug conjures up then subsequently discards potential hits. Never self-serious, Thug’s playful nature has always been one his greatest assets.

“Hello Hello (feat. Gunna & Neechie)”

It’s probably safe to assume that before creating songs like “Oh Okay,” Thug and his YSL artists cycle through a bunch in-studio exercise like this one. Work ethic and craftsmanship is a cornerstone his label and Thug comfortably slips into the the role mentor when it comes time to guide Gunna and Neechie.

“Money Turning Me On (All Da Smoke OG)”

One the coolest things about Thug’s prolificacy during his formative years was his tendency to reuse verses he’s committed to memory, delivering them in new and original ways in order to match the beat at hand. It never felt like you were getting cheated – quite the opposite, actually. As he’s reeled back his output, these glimpses into his approach to songwriting became less frequent. This leak repurposes his contributions to Super Slimey highlight “All Da Smoke,” while also gifting us with an unheard first verse.


“Breathe” is one the best Thug songs to leak this year. The vocals are euphoric, the beat is exuberant, and Thug’s tempers his usual bravado with disarmingly touching lyrics (“You a diamond in the rough!”). On this one, Thug goes out his way to rekindle a dying love with pleas for patience and compassion.

“Slide By”

Thug’s ability to craft alternative dance, electronic, and EDM influenced vibes is ten underrated. His suggestive lyrics (“If you think I’m gay you can come check my dick/if you think I’m sweet, I’ll let you take a lick”), animated tone, and elastic vocal performances always make for some unexpectedly infectious jams.

“Parking Lot (feat. Duke)”

Thug and Duke have been a powerhouse duo since the jump and this relatively unheard leak is one their best collaborative efforts to date. Hard to believe right? Don’t take our word for it, head to Youtube and confirm for yourselves. 

“Lil Bitty”

The track takes f sprinting and Thug doesn’t even waste a second to catch his breath. We’re not sure when this was recorded, but it gives f some crazy 2015 vibes. From the free-form singing to the explosive hook, it’s all we’ve come to expect and grown to love about the blonde-haired oddball from another planet.

“My Bitches Love Me (feat. Migos)”

We’re not sure how else to say this: PLEASE GIVE US MIGOTHUGGIN. Their chemistry has always been undeniable and hopefully these recent detours into rap super stardom will only fuel their desire to create something special together down the line. The hook on this leak is only a small taste the chart-dominating hits Thugger and Quavo could potentially whip up.

“Whole Lot OG (feat. 21 Savage)”

Despite declaring that his debut album would have no features, 21 Savage still kept Thug’s background vocals on this penultimate track. This leaked reference sees Thug searching for untapped pockets while conjuring up the very ad libs that would remain on the album version.

“Other Speed (feat. Gunna & Duke)”

This track is more or less YSL messing around in the studio. As expected, the results are still entertaining.

“Signs OG (feat. Drake)”

After Thug’s features on More Life, it’s clear that Drake understands Thugger’s versatility. “Signs” seems to come from those very sessions. Thug’s exotic inflection is a ready fit for Drake’s repurposed island vibes, and his great vocal range allows him to completely upstage his colleague.

“Upscale (Drip OG) (feat. Quavo & Future)”

Presumably an early demo what eventually became Cardi B’s “Drip,” Thug’s abrupt whispering on here would make the Ying Yang Twins proud. 

“Money Shot”

The snippets prior to this song tease a missing verse, as well as an additional verse from 21 Savage, but the leaked version has more than enough one-liners to hold us over until the full version drops. The verse that we did get sees Thug in punchline mode, making the whole thing play like one long quotable.

“Whole Lot (feat. Migos, Lil Yachty & Duke)”

This is another leak whose snippets betray a missing Thug verse. Still, the leaked version is great as is and makes us nostalgic for the days when MigoThuggin felt like a real possibility.

“I’m On (feat. NBA Youngboy)”

NBA Youngboy is a rising star that openly accepts Thug as one his foremost influences. And although he shines on this recently unearthed collaboration, it’s the exquisite vibrato in Thug’s voice that ultimately steals the show. Thug’s vocals alone should be enough to make every current R&B artist trash their forthcoming EP.

“Barbie (Love Me) (feat. Gunna)”

“Barbie” is the most recent Young Thug leak and is coincidentally the only leak that sounds like it was actually recorded this year. Where the rest these are at least a year old (some even a few years older than that), this beautiful collab with Gunna sounds fresh out the studio. It’s a shame this one got out, considering it could’ve made a perfect follow up to Drip Season 3’s “King Kong”. On here, we get a brief but powerful glimpse at the continued development Thug’s ever-eccentric vocals, as his well as a taste some newly discovered harmonies.

Are Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan Reuniting Thanks To London On Da Track?

Rich Gang, consisting Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, and Birdman disbanded in 2014 as RHQ wanted to focus on his solo career. Following the dissolution the group, Young Thug’s career took f as he became one the most electric artists in the hip-hop genre, and Rich Homie has had difficulty connecting with the community on a larger scale. Thug appeared to disown RHQ following their falling out, starting “F-ck Rich Homie” chants at his shows before playing their joint hit “Lifestyle.” Their beef was well-documented and it appeared unlikely that the two would ever make music together again. 

While the extent their current relationship is unknown, they may be on better terms according to London On Da Track’s most recent Instagram post. Tha Tour Part 1 made Thug and Quan fans crave future collaborations and we may be getting a taste what a 2018 collab between RHQ and Thugger would sound like. Thug’s go-to producer London On Da Track shared a photo the rapper in the studio, with a caption that got Rich Gang fans hyped. “Something special, mite gotta call Quan,” wrote the producer. 

Some would argue that Thug released his best work while Rich Homie Quan was his sidekick. Whether or not the two are actually planning a Rich Gang reunion is up in the air. If they do indeed link up, it would likely be a one-f thing.
