Young Thug Readies New Album for Early 2020

  /  12.16.2019

Young Thug is coming back with more heat in 2020.

The prolific rapper has revealed that his next album will drop early next year. During an interview at the premiere of Uncut Gems, Thugger shared the timeline.

“I’m dropping an album in January, February,” he told “HipHollywood.”

He wouldn’t say much more, but earlier this year, he announced that his next album would be titled Punk. The project, which he has called his “best album,” will take a more introspective tone than his most recent album So Much Fun.

“The difference from that and Punk is Punk is me letting them in on my real life,” Thug told Rolling Stone. “Me letting them know all the situations I’ve been through. Opening up, letting the fans in, I feel like I never let ’em. I feel like I was always quit about certain things, because of people.”

He credits Tupac with inspiring Punk. “My best album would probably be Punk, because it’s more like real life. It’s more like Tupac,” he said. “Tupac could be one of the biggest rappers in the world, because he rapped what he rapped about. I had conversations with JAY-Z and he told me, ‘We gotta learn how to continue what Pac had going. Pac was a teacher. Pac teaches.”

In August, Thug released So Much Fun, which became his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The YSL Records boss is also working on a sequel to 2017’s Super Slimey with Future, Lil Baby, and Gunna.
