Young Thug drops off a surprising new track called “Raw,” which finds him shifting sharply towards melodic indie pop. The gorgeous beat consists of looping synth melodies over clanging woodblock percussion and m0an!ng vocal samples—it’s simple,beautiful, and couldn’t sound farther from a lot of the heard-hitting beats on recent Thug projects like Slime Season. Thug’s lyrics are as inscrutable as ever. “A wise man told me nothing,” he croons.
There’s no word yet on where this stunning track will end up, but
Thug has his Hy!£UN35 album and Slime Season 2 mixtape forthcoming.
