Young Thug Drops Sophomore Album 'PUNK'
Young Thug has released his highly-anticipated sophomore album PUNK. Out from 300 Entertainment and Young Stoner Life Records, the project is the rapper’s second major release of 2021, following Slime Language 2.
The 20-track LP packs in a lineup of major features, with bars from Gunna, J. Cole, Future, Drake, Travis Scott, Doja Cat, Nate Ruess, and more. The project also includes guest appearances from the late Mac Miller and Juice WRLD.
The Atlanta rapper began to roll out the album this past summer, performing four of the tracks NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert with a full rock band. This past Wednesday, October 13, Thug threw a party to celebrate the upcoming release where he destroyed a brand new Rolls-Royce alongside Gunna and Metro Boomin. The crew spray-painted the word "Punk" on the sides of the car and smashed its windshield.
Young Thug then celebrated the album's release by making his solo debut as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live. On the iconic stage, Thug performed "Tick Tock" — his most recent single prior to the album release — as well as "Love You More," which is listed on the new record. For the performances, the rapper shared the stage with album collaborators Gunna and Nate Ruess along with Blink-182’s Travis Barker who went off on the drums and Jeff Bhasker who played the piano.
