EDITORS’ NOTES

If Slime Language—the compilation album showcasing Young Thug’s Young Stoner Life label roster—tells us anything about the rapper, it’s that his “Family Don’t Matter” declaration from 2017’s BEAUTIFUL THUGGER GIRLS was a fallacy. Features on Slime Language include Thug’s longtime romantic partner, Karlae, as well as his sisters, HiDoraah and Dolly. Indeed, a majority of the names that appear on Slime Language are likely familiar only to diehards, but the album loses nothing in effectiveness for it. YSL affiliates such as Duke, Lil Keed, and Strick (to name a few) hold their own alongside the album’s constant, Thugger, a man who happens to be one of the most influential rappers of the post-Lil Wayne era. Thug himself is gleeful throughout, his tone-shifting squawk sounding outright euphoric, particularly when riding the trunk-rattling low end of standouts “Goin Up” and “Chains Choking Me.”

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Well-done

Even though Thug is incomprehensible at times, he uses the inflections and pace of his voice to match the variability of the music. I find this to be a great strength. Some rappers rap at the same pace and tone regardless of the music track--Thug does an excellent job in mixing things up.
