Young Thug is not letting his legal troubles stop him from releasing new music. The Atlanta rapper, who is currently facing RICO charges and awaiting trial, surprised his fans with his new album “Business Is Business“, which arrived on June 23rd.
“Business Is Business” is Thug’s third studio album and his first solo project since 2021’s “Punk“, which earned him his first Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album. Fans of the artist have been eagearly awaiting Thug’s next move musically, so when the album hit streaming services, it was met with much hype.
The album features 15 tracks and boasts an dope lineup of guest appearances, including Drake, Future, 21 Savage, and Travis Scott. The album was executive produced by Metro Boomin, who also handled most of the production along with other hitmakers like London On Da Track and Dr. Luke.
“Business Is Business” showcases Thug’s versatility and creativity as he switches between different flows, melodies and genres which he has mastered. The album includes some new bangers like “Oh U Went” with Drake, which has a video that can be seen above and “Wit Da Racks” with 21 Savage, Travis Scott and Yak Gotti. As a fan of Young Thugs, I can honestly say that the album is far from his best work. With his current circumstances, I guess we should be happy to at least get what we got. For Thug who we know can churn out hits, I really don’t see much replay value on this record. Metro Boomin’ even decided to go back and switch the tacklising order 4 days after the original release and drop off the “Business Is Business” (Metro Version)”. A few new songs were added, even the new track “Money” featuring Nicki Minaj and Juice Wrld couldn’t add much wow factor to this album. This is no shade toward Thugger who is currently fighting for freedom, but we are ready for you to come home and give us that heat. But until then…. FREE Thugger!
