Onderscheidingen Pitchfork: Best New Music
“All of the songs are like fucking parade music. It ain’t no storylines to it. This shit is all about fun. If you're not having fun or in a fun mood, don’t even play this album” Young Thug warned. And since he’s having a party, he has invited all his friends from the rap scene to join him on this XXL album which boasts 13 featurings among the 19 tracks! Opening the album, we find the Atlanta rapper alone on Just How It Is, accompanied by just a folk guitar, a bass line and a minimalist beat to supplement his melodious flow. We then go straight to the main course with Sup Mate, which features his fellow American hip-hop superstar Future, who’s not as scathing as usual on this haunting production by ATL Jacob (Future’s loyal producer) and DY Krazy (808 Mafia). Some of the album’s highlights include the hit-worthy Surf, featuring Gumma, Lil Duke’s performance on I Bought Her, the catchy chorus of Bad Bad Bad (feat. Lil Baby), and the single The London, the album’s finale that features the two heavyweights Travis Scott and J. Cole, the latter supervising the record’s production. When he goes solo, Young Thug is just as ruthless as ever, as he demonstrates on Jumped out the Window over a jittery piano, or on Pussy, where he takes on Tenor Saw’s timbre from the reggae dancehall classic Ring The Alarm. That should be enough to occupy the top of the charts for a while. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Considering how much the Atlanta rapper has been dominating the scene for the past few years, it might seem crazy that So Much Fun, released in the summer of 2019 to great fanfare, is Young Thug’s first official studio album. A spiritual son of Lil Wayne, who has himself inspired a big number of disciples and been one of the pioneers of so-called ‘mumble rap’, made J. Cole the executive producer of the album and invited all the elites to the party (Travis Scott, Future, 21 Savage, Juice Wrld…). No surprise then that upon release, the album shot to the top of the charts and the press was lyrical in its praise: Thug had not yet shown such expertise and firepower. The balance between certified hits (Hot, The London, Bad Bad Bad) and Thug oddities is impeccable. This deluxe version features five new tracks and does more than just satisfy our greed for new music. Travis Scott appears on a fiery remix of Hot (it’s easy to become obsessed with that flute sample) and the triumphant Hop Off a Jet. The frenzied Millions and Die Today, a tribute to Juice Wrld who died eight days before the release of the album make way for Diamonds featuring apprentice Gunna and the brilliant Pi’erre Bourne on production who perfectly rounds off the ante with his catchy ad libs. © Damien Besançon/Qobuz
