Young Thug gifts his fans with more music after dropping his collaborative mixtape with Gucci Mane called Thugga Mane La Flare. Back in March, Birdman premiered his new V-log “A Day In The Life Of Birdman” where he stated that Thug’s “Eww” single would be releasing in the near future. While this seems to be an uncompleted version (Drake is rumored to appear on the completed one), the track surfaces online just featuring Thug’s vocals. On the Southside-produced cut, Thug’s unique style stands out. Don’t be surprised if you see celebrities turning up to this.
