"Hy!£UN35" is out on August 28th.
You thought we were gonna get through this Young Thug album drop without a bona fide "WTF" moment? Think again. According to an email from 300 president Lyor Cohen, acquired by Pigeons & Planes, Barter 6 is a mixtape, and Thugger's impenetrably-titled, actual debut album will be out in August.

The collection, which marks the rapper’s first solo outing in more than two years, is available now at all digital retailers.
