2 Chainz first announced his new album Rap Or Go To The League, the follow-up to 2017’s Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, over a year ago. He did it in grand 2 Chainz fashion, by riding around in a giant blimp with the album title painted on it. Since then, he … More »
J. Cole really tried it. A week and a half ago, J. Cole was at the NBA Slam-Dunk Contest to serve as a human prop — like Dwight Howard’s Superman cape, or Blake Griffin’s Kia, or Donovan Mitchell’s Kevin Hart. The runner-up in this year’s Dunk Contest was Knicks guard Dennis Smith, Jr. More »
2019 might be some kind of cosmic turning point in the history of the Grammys: The first show where the conversation was more about who didn’t perform than who did. Ariana Grande’s fuck-this-shit refusal to play ball with the notorious Grammy-production dumbfucks revealed just how completely this was a show in … More »

2015’s Creed is a perfect movie, a movie that I might rewatch at least once a year for the rest of my life. The brand-new Creed II is not a perfect movie; it’s clumsier and looser and more formulaic than its predecessor. Creed II is, however, a very good movie. I spent something like 30% … More »

There was this rap-video cliché in the late ’90s. The rapper would jump out a window, with police chasing him. Or he’d be in a boat, with DEA chasing him. Or he’d be face-to-face with the sworn enemy that we met four minutes earlier. And these words would flash across the screen: “To be continued…” … More »
Back in 2014, when world-conquering trap star T.I. was entering his veteran phase and visionary freak Young Thug was the most exciting force in rap, the two Atlanta natives teamed up for one of the best songs of their respective careers, “About The Money.” Rather than clashing, their respective energies brought out the … More »
Young Thug‘s released the highly anticipated On the Rvn EP.
Despite its fair share of setbacks and Thugger’s arrest earlier this year, the rapper’s managed to nab a who’s-who of artists for the work, creating an experimental roster that spans generations and genres while putting diehard fans at ease.
This is Thugger for the radio. With features from 6LACK and Jaden Smith and even a starry-eyed Elton John appearance on the project’s final track “High” — Thugger’s own homage to John’s seminal Honky Château hit “Rocket Man — the EP’s Thugger’s most left-of-field pop star self-positioning to date.
He seamlessly transitions from rapping and singing on the terrifically terrible, and yet beautiful ambient crooning of the EP’s standout “High.” And although the Elton John track initially leaked in August, fans are finally invited to absorb Young Thug’s imperfectly autotuned “I’m a rocket man” croons in full. The rapper’s somewhere out in the stratosphere on “High,” channeling a level of brevity and experimentation that feels grounded solely in its nonexistence, and it’s a theme that runs the entire work.
