Young Thug has been waiting to put out his latest collaboration with his mentor Gucci Mane for a long while, previewing the track as far back as May. Now, on his birthday, he finally gets the chance to drop his LaFlare assisted single, “Again.” Fittingly, the clip was filmed at the Gucci Mane “Trap God” exhibit by Cam Kirk, which helps to fill in the hole left by Gucci’s absence.
Where the track ends up is anybody’s guess. Back in July when Thugger was set to drop his collaborative mixtape with London On Da Track, Slime Season, he teased the track again, only to balk on both the song and the tape on July 4th weekend. While it seems Thug’s legal troubles may have gotten in the way of his plans to release the song and tape over the past month, Thug and London both reassured fans on Twitter that Slime Season is still “Boming” soon.
With Thug’s album, Hy!£UN35 set to drop next month as well as his fall tour kicking off it would make sense to drop a tape beforehand to get the buzz kickstarted. Just don’t expect that tape to be the long-awaited Metro Thuggin with producer Metro Boomin, because apparently Thug’s label isn’t letting that one fly.
The lead-up to a busy and lucrative fall season for Young Thug is officially underway, and with “Again,” it’s off to a great start.
