Young Thug has announced that a sequel to his Slime Language compilation is on the way. Taking to Twitter, Thug revealed the Aug. 16 release date, which coincides with his birthday.
“#Slimelanguage2 8-16,” he wrote in the since-deleted tweet.
It’s unclear why the tweet was deleted, but the release date supports previous comments from Thug’s sister Alexis “Dolly” Grier, who said her brother has a “surprise” on the way. “My brudda got a birthday coming up,” she told her followers. “He has a surprise coming up…big surprise.”
