New Atlanta is a term thrown around in hip-hop to describe the growing talent in the city. Rappers like Trinidad James, Spree Wilson, Go Dreamer and more are part of the movement that brings back the culture and flavor into their sounds. 1017 Bricksquad’s Young Thug has been offering his youthful exuberance to the roster and playing the role as rap weirdo.
Young Thug started to grab people’s attentions with his I Came From Nothing series first released in 2011. He was also the standout guest appearance in Gucci Mane’s Trap God 2 and Waka Flocka Flame’s DuFlocka Rant 2. Now, it seems his buzz is set for 1017 Thug, a new project that Gucci has been tweeting about long before its release.
There are many elements of former successful trap rappers like Future, Chief Keef, Lil Wayne and even his labelmates. Young Thug’s charisma, unhinged flow and hooks make his music intriguing. Some highlights on the 20-track effort include “2 Cups Stuffed,” “Picacho,” F*** With It” and “Condo Music.”
