Young Thug’s Forthcoming Album Punk Could Be Really Bad

 

The mutant Atlanta rap star Young Thug has been a prolific mixtape force for a solid decade, but he’s only categorized one among his releases, the 2019 hit such a lot Fun, as a straight-up studio album. So it’s notable that Thug his now making another album — his second, a minimum of consistent with him — which he’s calling it Punk. (He first announced that album title in 2019.) Thug began as a challenging, boundary-pushing presence, and he now appears to consider himself as a rocker . Paradoxically, an album called Punk looks like the foremost retrograde thing that Young Thug could do, especially since it looks like Travis Barker are going to be involved.
In a remake of NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts series, Thug has debuted four of the songs which will reportedly appear on Punk. within the video, he performs during a beautifully manicured l. a. back yard. He’s protected by Damnage Gooods, a live band that appears to be comprised entirely of los angeles studio musicians. The video opens with Thug telling a harrowing story of family strife. But the four songs that follow — “Die
Slow,” “Droppin Jewels,” “Hate the sport ,” and “Tick Tock” — are all fairly generic by Thug’s own standards.

But it’s the top of the video that’s most concerning. With Travis Barker sitting in, Thug does a flavorless rock version of “Ski,” one that appeared on his recent label compilation Slime Language 2. It sucks really bad, and it suggests that Thug could be well on his thanks to making his own version of Lil Wayne’s notoriously garbage 2010 rap-rock album Rebirth. If you wish , you'll experience the entire Tiny Desk situation below.
