Young Thug 'So Much Fun' Album Review
Not trying to toot my own horn, but I'm money when it comes to predicting rap's next superstars -- ask my patnas, exes, whoever. Call me Bobstradamous or That's So Bobby — whichever you prefer. Jeffery Lamar Williams, aka Young Thug, happens to be my favorite gem unearthed. In 2011, my sophomore year at Lehigh University, College Park Georgia’s very own Rack$et Marley introduced me to Hip Hop's messiah. For months, we argued if a gender-ambiguous rapper by the name of Young Thug could fly further than Atlanta’s Cleveland Ave. Shit, rap is a genre in which masculinity and bravado mean just as much if not more than the content. Despite the countless attacks on his sexual orientation, style and sound, Sex morphed into one of the most influential and innovative artists of this generation with cosigns from the likes of Elton John and Andre 3000. Last week, he dropped his debut album, a 19-track project titled "So Much Fun," which is a culmination of everything from the "I Came From Nothing" series until now. After our ears cooled, we watched Thug garner the success he's deserved -- scored his first No. 1 album and sold 131k records first week-- and reviewed the album. Instead of words, we chose to do so the millennial way -- Gifs.
I think Young Thug has a chance to make a nice lil mainstream run— Bobby Ziti (@4MPBobby) February 2, 2012
