Hot – Young Thug Featuring Gunna | So Much Fun is more like a continuation of 2017’s tuneful and relatively understated Beautiful Thugger Girls.

Spin magazine said that sounds more like a tool calibrated to produce a particular effect than an experiment with unpredictable results. Still, those effects are often dazzling.

The multi-talented musician is not only comfortable at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the first time in his life with what he’s deemed his debut album So Much Fun, he’s also dominating the Hot 100 songs ranking.

This bevy of debuts now gives Thug a career total of 42 in the Hot 100, which puts him in a tie with some seriously big name acts, including: Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Snoop Dogg, and Johnny Cash. Additionally he’s done this in a relatively short period of time as his first charting song ever came in March 2014 with “Stoner,” which debuted at the No. 47 spot in that month of that year.

Jeffery Lamar Williams, known professionally as Young Thug, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Known for his eccentric vocal style and fashion, he first received attention for his collaborations with rappers Rich Homie Quan, Birdman, and Gucci Mane. Young Thug initially released a series of independent mixtapes beginning in 2011 with I Came from Nothing.

 

 

On ‘So Much Fun,’ Young Thug raps with a masterful sense of songcraft over the richest beats of his career, but he’s no longer inventing new styles with every passing bar.

On the album, Thug takes some time to pat himself on the back, aware of his own widespread influence. With guests on most songs, each of his Atlanta rap sons get some swings in, but Thug makes sure to show them they’ve still got a ways to go. On “Hot,” he educates Gunna on how to expertly flex one’s jewelry over triumphant Wheezy-produced horns. His most accomplished pupil, Lil Baby, makes him proud on “Bad Bad Bad,” as his unrelatable boasts about real estate and foreign whips are on par with Thug.

Young Thug Gets His Due, but Is It Too Late?

 

September 7, 2019

Last month, the Atlanta rapper Young Thug, who has been releasing mind-bending and style-bending music since 2011, had his first No. 1 album on the Billboard chart, “So Much Fun.” It was a triumph for one of the most innovative — and most emulated — hip-hop artists of the 2010s.

The new 14-track album serves as the group’s third full-length and their first release on a major label, arriving via J.Cole’s Dreamville Records/Interscope. It features a range of guest artists including Young Thug, T-Pain, Kehlani, and more.

On the 19-track record, Thug shows us what he’s learnt over the years. On the melodic, Pi’erre Bourne-produced ‘I’m Scared’, which comes with features from 21 Savage and Doeboy, Young Thug creates a mellow vibe, whilst also managing to reinstate his authority in the streets. The trio relentlessly rap about trapping and dodging the cops but, due to their wealth, it’s at an elite level: “Runnin’ from the cops in a goddamn Rolls”.

Young Thug scored another entry on the Billboard Hot 100 when “Hot,” featuring Gunna — from his Billboard 200-topping album So Much Fun — hit the chart.

Hot – Young Thug Featuring Gunna

[Intro: Gunna]
Wheezy outta here
Hot, hot, hot, hot
Hot, hot, hot, hot
Hot, hot, hot, hot
Hot, hot, hot, hot

[Chorus: Gunna]
Everything litty, I love when it’s hot
Turned up the city, I broke off the notch
Got some more millis, I keep me a knot
I created history and made me a lot
He tried to diss me and ended on Fox
We call them chopsticks ’cause they gonna chop
Took her out of Follies ’cause her pussy pop
I run it like Nike, we got it on lock

[Verse 1: Gunna]
Cartier eye
I’m the bossman in a suit but no tie
I can’t be sober, I gotta stay high
Pour me some syrup in a Canada Dry
Ridin’ in the spaceship like Bonnie and Clyde
Don’t worry, baby, I keep me some fire
Shenenehs and Birkins, she cannot decide
The latest Mercedes her go-to surprise
Don’t sleep on miss lady, her pussy a prize
Dick in her back while I’m grippin’ her sides
Bigger Maybach, this ain’t regular size
We really fly, we like pelican glide
Bitch, you ain’t slick, I can tell the disguise
Upgraded my wrist, put baguettes in that Sky
She sing, I might sign her and change her whole life
I told her to gargle and work on her highs

[Chorus: Gunna]
Everything litty, I love when it’s hot
Turned up the city, I broke off the notch
Got some more millis, I keep me a knot
I created history and made me a lot
He tried to diss me and ended on Fox
We call them chopsticks ’cause they gonna chop
Took her out of Follies ’cause her pussy pop
I run it like Nike, we got it on lock

[Interlude: Young Thug]
Cash, money, checks, cash
Addy, Birkin, brand new extendos
I just wanna fuck the bitch by myself
I just passed her to the dawg like my Sprite

[Verse 2: Young Thug]
I took the Bentley coupe back, then I hopped in a Cayenne (Skrrt)
I put the bitch in the front of the Bentley, in front of the driver (Skrrt)
Haven’t had a sip, that that weed you can’t smoke in the Rolls Royce, woah, woah (Yeah, yeah)
I’m strapped up, I’m cupped up, I’m drinkin’, I shoot off your tires, huh (Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo)
I’m in the coupe by myself
I had to kick a door when I was 5
Keep the old ones on the shelf
Whole sixteen round in the fire
I’m sick and tired of these young niggas act like they firin’, they tellin’ these lies
Actin’ like they the ones created this and they get all the drip from my guys
Yeah, Cartier eyes
Cartier coat, Cartiers the watch
Cartier love, Cartier the thot
Cartier spread, buffalo on the side
Princess cut diamonds, they Cartier, yeah
Cartier bag for the Cartier thot
Sky Wrangler coupe with two hundred the dash
Cartier jeans, ain’t no way I can sag
No way I’ma ever gon’ go out bad
I can’t go out, no way I’ma go out
I just grip on her ass and I show out
I sit like a champ and I wait on a hold-out
I just whip up a new Chanel Patek
I whip with the wrist and I don’t break the door out
Turn the whole top floor to a whorehouse
Hundreds racks in ones, dude brought the flood out

[Outro: Gunna]
Hot, hot, hot, hot
Hot, hot, hot, hot
Hot, hot, hot, damn
Hot, hot, hot, hot
