First, “Memo” and now Young Thug be droppin’ hits like pick up sticks.
Young Thug has been certainly extremely active in the past year. From performing live, to featuring on major songs like Chance the Rapper’s “Mixtape” and Usher’s “No Limit,” showing up in various interviews and releasing his own mixtape Slime Season 3, this artist has been sure to keep his fans engaged.
Just last week, the Thugger shared the visual to his single “Memo,” which also featured the recently released-from bail rapper Gucci Mane. But did you think that this hip hop artist was done for the summer? Nah, bruh. This Atlanta-native is just getting started to load up a whole new project for everyone. For the past week, Thugger has been posting videos on Instagram and Twitter to showcase snippets of new songs that are going to be on this upcoming album entitled Jeffrey. In each post, he raps the tracks in various settings, making it casual for the audience, but definitely adding in the hype of when the anticipated album will drop.
This wasn’t the first time we heard the name of the project though. Earlier last month, Young Thug made an announcement about his to-be solo-studio record, so a lot of us, who heard about this creation, have been patiently waiting for the product. We don’t know the names of any of the songs that he broadcasts via socials, stealthily masking all of them under the caption “JEFFREY,” but from what we are given a glimpse of, they sound like the makings of a dope, well-constructed studio album! (And he shows off a lot of shiny bling, money, and clean feet to go with them.) He let fans know through the captions that the music would be delivered shortly: “‘JEFFERY” THE MIXTAPE OTW…..” But no exact date has been reported. You can see the series of Instagram posts previewing the songs below. What do you think of the music? Do you think the expectations are high, and will be met? Stay tuned.
