A look at some of Young Nudy's most underrated joints.
Laced with production from legends in the making Pi’erre Bourne and Metro Boomin, Slaughter Gang and 21 Savage affiliate, Young Nudy, has seen a meteoric rise in notoriety over the past year. And he’s effectively capitalized on this spike in fame, fortune and opportunity by remaining as consistent now as he was pre-limelight. Since the first Slimeball, Nudy has refused to take his foot off the gas. And since the first Slimeball, his raps have gotten tighter, his flow more experimental, and his delivery more captivating.
When Nudy raps, it often feels like you're listening in on an off-the-cuff conversation between friends. But more often than not, it’s Nudy arguing with his own psyche. At times it’s entertaining - Nudy has a sharp sense of comedic timing. And at times it’s dark, gritty and bleak - everything we’ve come to expect from the most authentic Atlanta artists.
Scattered across his past three full length projects are brand new Atlantan anthems, newly discovered flows (which in and of itself seemed like an impossible task in a post-Young Thug world) and, most importantly, all the signs of a great rapper in the making. Slimeball’s “Real Right” and “Rough Life” are stellar; as are tracks like “Blessings,” “Smoke” and Yep Yep” from the sequel. His newest release, Nudy Land (stream here if you missed it before/as/after diving into these) might just be his strongest offering to date.
Since these projects are readily available on all major streaming platforms, we wanted to place the emphasis on the slew of street singles Nudy has left in his wake. Are you ready for Young Nudy fandom? Trudge forward.
