I got 14/20 on my first try


#131

only song I didn’t like was RiRi, his barking “earn earn earn earn it” is too much for me.


#132

I really like the song, but I laugh whenever the hook is on. Its way too much.


#133

bet

I listened to this and SS3 back to back and think SS3 is better.


#134

ss3 more accessible to general public and jeffery is way more experimental with flows even though thug always trying something different every song


#135

The 8.5 review for Jeffery is well deserved.


#136

Rihanna sleeping on hits

I love Young Thug, but I feel like he’s definitely not going to be really remembered in 10 years. The problem is that he’s both too mainstream and not mainstream enough.

On the one hand, his production is definitely mainstream. This is an asset to him now, because he can get fans who like the production. In ten years, though, it’s going to sound incredibly dated. On the other hand, his delivery is weird as fuck. It’s interesting enough that he could be remembered for it - if his production wasn’t so mainstream. The problem is that his delivery is too weird to get big mainstream success. He’s never going to get the sort of success that he could be remembered for alone, but he’s not weird enough to be timeless.

(His lyricism is better off not being mentioned. Lyricism is a good way to get longevity, because good lyrics will almost always remain good lyrics. Not so with production or delivery.)

Does anybody else here agree or disagree with this?

hot take: i don’t think the dude should spend more time on a release. his improvisational style has led to some crazy experiments. even on the shorter releases from 2016 there was a bunch of filler. i think the reason why he had such a great 2015 was because of the sheer number of songs he dropped. the first two slime seasons were probably his best projects (barter 6 and tha tour are close though) even though they were pretty uneven their highlights are high as hell. lyor should just let the guy drop whatever the hell he wants, especially migosthuggin’ and hitunes. either way he’s one of the most distinct artists of his era. weird, unique, captivating, call it what you want, but i think he’s got a lot of great stuff under his belt.

I realised today that Tony Hawks Underground can be an acronymed as T.H.U.G. I was just wondering if any of you thought Young Thug had anything to do with this?


#141

JEFFERY>Barter 6>EBBTG>SS>SS3>SS2>1017 Thug>I’m Up>Rich Gang tha tour>ICFN2>>>1017 Thug 2>1017 Thug 3>ICFN>ICFN3. not including collab tapes, I think I’ve listened to it all.

Lol I started with 1017 Thug 2 so it holds a special place for me I guess.
