Young Thug worth another listen

Lukasz Sasulski, Staff Writer

The most recent album by rapper Young Thug, “So Much Fun”, had me underwhelmed at first.

The beats and vocals by Young Thug are not as unique as the ones on his older projects such as “Super Slimey.”

At first, I really expected a lot of harmonization by the legend himself. But instead I heard regular songs with verses that were not up to par with previous songs.

On the flip side, the features on the album really added to the quality.

Featured artists such as Lil Uzi, Gunna, and Lil Keed are perfect additions to the album.

Not Machine Gun Kelly though.

His verse just copied Young Thug’s in style and flow which ruined the song “Ecstasy” by making it feel too repetitive.

This album may have mainly been released to put on YSL, Young Thug’s record label, which features artists like Lil Keed and Lil Duke who do not have as much fame as Young Thug but are still good enough to rap alongside him on multiple tracks.

My favorite song was definitely “Hot ft. Gunna.” The beat went hard with the horn loops and loud bass makes me feel the beat in my soul, even with headphones.

The song “Sup Mate ft. Future” is also loved by lots of other listeners, especially after memes were made joking at UK fans due to the song’s title.

Truthfully though, after listening to this album on and off since its initial release, the songs really grew on me. At this point, I love the album as much as I love others like “Slime Season 3” and “Super Slimey.”

The very short week notice of the release also played in favor of Young Thug because people did not have enough time to expect revolutionary songs from him like they do from Playboi Carti’s “Whole Lotta Red” or Lil Uzi’s “Eternal Atake.”

I felt like I just listened to the songs and enjoyed them like I did with any Young Thug song.

The adlibs in the whole album were definitely as beautiful as I expected, which really made me enjoy it more and appreciate Young Thug’s artistic abilities.

Overall, I’d definitely give this album a 7.5/10 because I can see myself listening to it for a while but it is not enough to consider it a true masterpiece.
