In case you hadn't heard, Young Thug's Slime Season is out, and it's just the game-changer we expected it to be, showcasing an even more confident and experimental Thugger than we heard on Barter 6. The HNHH community, and the rest of those listeners whom had been weary of Thug's flamboyant style and bizarre viral antics, is starting to come around. To be fair, early in his career, when he was at his most prolific, Thug wasn't nearly as consistent as he is now. Slime Season now proves, however, that rap's most bewildering personality has found a sound that he's comfortable with -- and a close knit group of producers who understand the type of mood and space that he needs to properly be himself on a track.

The effect of the producers on Slime Season, and throughout Thugger's entire come-up, cannot be understated. A hot beat is a hot beat, and the beats on Slime Season are undeniable. Some credit, though, goes back to Thugga, as you likely haven't heard beats like this because no other rapper can navigate them so seamlessly.
