Introducing: Young Thug

A day after sharing his "No Fuck" record in January, Atlanta rapper Young Thug released a collaborative mixtape, Black Portland, with Bloody Jay. The project includes 11 songs, and features his menacing song "Danny Glover," which Drake and Kanye West have both been seen dancing to. In a recent interview with Complex, Thug states that "I went to Kanye's house and we did a couple of songs. The fact that I was [making songs] so fast amazed him too, because he doesn’t see a lot of people who rap like that." Stay tuned for more on the 21 year-old rapper, as he has some mixtape plans with Rich Homie Quan, known for his track "Type of Way."
