“Even if yo’ b*tch by you, Yeah, I can make her do me…”

I’ve been having a playful, back-and-forth argument with a few of the Crew about Thugger. No question he gets blessed with beats that are borderline bonkers. But he can be unintelligible as hell when he rhymes, which lowers my enjoyment as a result. I listened to the Rich Gang mixtape after hearing good responses to it. Thug isn’t the I-don’t-know-what-he’s-talking-about in the Ghostface way. He just mumbles and makes noises. The more he does it, the less enjoyable the song ends up being.

But, when Young Stoner Life takes the time to hit every word like he does on “Speed Racer” with constant comprandre Metro Boomin’, he’s good money with me. What he lacks in depth, he manages to make up for with his pinball flow and quirkiness.

Metro and Thugger will be hittin’ the road with Travi$ Scott for the recently announced Rodeo tour.
