Young Thug’s newest project, On The Rvn, shows some musical maturity for an artist who’s no long running.
Young Thug is currently out on bail and will most likely have to serve time for drug and gun possession charges (#freethugger), but in the meantime, he’s remixing Elton John’s “Rocket Man” and turning it into a Hip-Hop ballad for the ages. The followup to Slime Language, which was released just last month, is, as a whole, one of Young Thug’s strongest projects and includes some of the most groundbreaking songs for Thugger since Beautiful Thugger Girls. The EP also features Jaden Smith and 6LACK, who just released his own album the other week, but If you do anything today, just listen to “High”, the “Rocket Man” remix. Even if you don’t like Young Thug or autotuned vocals in general, this song will put you in a mood. You can find “High” from Young Thug featuring Elton John on our Tasty! Jams playlists for September.
