There’s good news and bad news: The bad news is Young Thug still hasn’t kept his promise to drop a new “singing” album executive produced by Drake, the good news is he randomly released a new track that’s so many flame emojis it’s enough to forgive him for the time being. Thug and one of his go-to producers Wheezy dropped “Free Blac Youngsta” suddenly on Twitter today and it’s the exact type of melodic, woozy banger his fans have been salivating for recently.
The title may be a little controversial, as Blac Youngsta is currently incarcerated and being charged with six counts of discharging a weapon into occupied property and felony conspiracy for allegedly shooting Young Dolph, a rapper with whom Thug has collaborated with in the past.
Not that Thug is any stranger to controversy, as he’s been known to shout “Free The Goat” in reference to his friend, Jimmy “PeeWee Roscoe” Winfrey, the man who pled guilty to shooting Lil Wayne’s tour bus in Atlanta back in 2015. I guess Thug wants his friends freed no matter who it offends. Either way, the song is dope, and worth a listen and you can check out what is apparently the rough version below before Thug’s famed engineer Alex Tumay gets his hands on it and makes it even better.
