REVIEW OF SUPER SLIMEY BY YOUNG THUG AND FUTURE
Super Slimey is a surprise collab mixtape dropped a couple nights ago by superstar trap artists Young Thug and Future. I’ve never really been a fan of Future’s music, but Young Thug has been really impressing me ever since his 2016 mixtape Jeffery. Combining these two actually resulted in a pretty dope project. The production throughout is amazing, and Future and Thug really have great chemistry. In spite of my feelings on Future’s solo music, I actually really enjoyed what he did on Super Slimey. His style complimented Thugger so well I was actually kinda shocked. He legit spazzed on some tracks, giving us some dope, catchy flows. His delivery was still kinda annoying at times, but I enjoyed what he did for the most part. Young Thug sounded good on this as well, although I wish he had used less auto tune. It’s one thing for Future, because that’s the style he’s known for, but Young Thug has consistently proven himself to be able to sound great without it, considering his fun delivery and unique voice. Thugger still sounded good for the most part, but he definitely did not do as much as I feel he could have delivery-wise. That’s really the only major problem i have with this project though. I could talk about the traditional criticisms of these two artists: the lack of lyricism/subject matter, or the fact that you can barely understand them at some points, but honestly that’s kind of redundant at this point. You know what you’re getting into when you put on this mixtape, and overall Future and Thug really do their thing and do it well. There are definitely some skipable tracks, but overall it’s an extremely fun, enjoyable listen with lots of bangers throughout.
Best tracks: Three, Killed Before, No Cap, All da Smoke, Patek Water, Mink Flow
Worst tracks: 4 Da Gang, Group Home
What are your thoughts on the project?
Aight so I heard Raw Footage by Ice Cube a couple days ago. This is his 8th album and was released 2008. I really fuck with this. The reason being is that looking at the album there weren't any major features except Jeezy, The Game and WC from WestSide Connection. When I take a first look at a project features are the first thing I look for. So going into this I didn't know what to expect. Either way he didn't disappoint. He had a bunch of those head bopping west coast sound beats that really bump in the whip. I didn't have a single complaint for this album. Every track is a banger except one. Stand Tall, the 2nd last track is a bit soulful I guess u could call it? It's a slower song about black people and standing up against oppression and making it in the world. I loved it cuz it was unexpected and he still nailed it. Then he closed out the album with one last banger. I really recommend this album if u fuck with gangsta rap give this a listen. Many west coast rappers who aren't lyricists really on their beats to catch attention. But I felt like Cube has an amazing ear for beats but his lyrics don't lack either. One of the most criminally underrated rappers of all time imo.
Favorite tracks: Tomorrow, Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It

Mine is probably juke jam right now. It's not his best song but it's very smooth and dope to listen to when you're chillin at night

Music overall. Yes Eminem will be posted from time to time when i chose so but until then welcome❤ and ti everyone else, yall know me lol so let's build this page up!
For day 9 of @hiphopheadmike’s challenge my favorite collaboration would be the incredible posse cut Really Doe by Danny Brown, Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, and Earl Sweatshirt. This is basically a dream collaboration for me, with the top 3 current rappers in Kenny, Earl, and Danny and a criminally underrated rapper in Ab-Soul. Even though it’s my least favorite verse, Danny Brown kills his part in the beginning. Ab-Soul surprised me so much with his verse. I hadn’t listened to any of his albums before I heard his verse but it instantly made me check them out. He has the best part on the track. Kendrick obviously has an outstanding verse and a good chorus. While Earl’s section is somewhat overrated in the community, he still spits some 🔥 and had a pretty memorable last line. Overall an incredible song, and one I definitely recommend if you haven’t already heard it.
