Having just yesterday released Gangster Shit, his first solo track since he put out Slime Season 3 two months ago, Young Thug is back in our ears once again. This time, he is alongside Ty Dolla $ign on Friend Of Scotty. The keen Thug fans among us might recognise the track among the tonne of his songs that leaked late last year. Producer Dun Deal, who’s also worked with Future, Drake and Gucci Mane, and who’s sound-bite you’ll no doubt have heard, has graced the internet with the full version of the track via his Soundcloud.
Ty Dolla $ign’s verse is the only addition since the leak, but it’s all the better for it. Dun Deal’s beat is punchy. Real simple when it needs to be – full of bells, whistles and bass hits during verses – and extravagant in the chorus – with brass and strings perfectly executed among some San Andreas sounding guitar chords. Ty’s raspy voice works well over the instrumental, and compliments the high range of Thug on this track really well. Thug is as he always is, consistent, addictive to listen to, and sometimes hard to understand.
While he’s released a tonne of mixtapes – just last month announcing I Came From Nothing 4 – we’re still waiting on that Young Thug debut album. Hy!£UN35 (or Hitunes) was meant to drop back in August of last year, but is as far as we know, still in the works. With Thug making so many tunes though, no doubt he’s saving only the best.
