For this week's Throwback Thursday, revisit this standout cut from Young Thug's magnificent "Jeffery."


The weather is changing and summer will soon be upon us. It's hard not to look up at the sun and dream, ever-wistful, of nights to come. Naturally, the backyard barbecues and pool parties will remain on the docket as per usual. And with activities of that nature, it's only appropriate that the finest summer smashes are front and center on your playlist.

Basically, if you don't have Young Thug and Wyclef Jean's magnificent "Kanye West," you're lacking. Not only did this banger give us the immortal "Jeffery" ad-lib, but it's stood triumphant as one of Thugger's most refined and infectious melodic cuts. With lush, tropical production, "Kanye West" encapsulates everything that made Jeffery such a triumph.

The drums are sure to please even the most ardent reggae fan, and even those adverse to Thugger's unconventional style will no doubt find something to love. Throughout the verses, Thug's sexually charged lyrics shine as he employs masterful control over his cadence; half coherent, half mumble, all passion. 

True, the chorus is essentially a glorification of the old 'finger-in-the-bum' a la Euron from Game Of Thrones, but there's something inherently innocent about the carefree melody. By the time Wyclef slides in with a veteran's poise, the song has already solidified itself as a quintessential summer banger. Jeffffffffery.

Quotable Lyrics

Jeffery be easy
After sex she gon' wanna get married
Seen many men on Maury
Claimin' "the kid ain't my baby"
But taste the cake, I gotta have her
Shower to the big red sofa chair
Play truth or dare
Jumpin' in the pool with no swim wear gear
