The 10 Best Mixtapes of February


Young Thug, 1017 Thug

Gucci Mane’s newest signee to his 1017 imprint has a distinctive style: Young Thug came from the creative melting pot of Atlanta, where his I Came from Nothing mixtape series was favorable among music fans. Obvious influences in Lil Wayne’s cadence or Future’s auto-tune melodic bending are found all over his newest tape, 1017 Thug. It’s thick with features—Gucci Mane, Young Scooter, PeeWee Longway—and also manages to establish him a soon-to-be cult favorite with tracks like “F*ck With It” and “Condo Music.” Young Thug has a promising future ahead of him.
