Despite just releasing SO MUCH FUN, which is set to debut No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Young Thug is already gearing up to drop another album.
In his cover story for The FADER, Thugger speaks on a myriad of topics–including plans to release a project called PUNK in the near future.
“It’s most definitely touching music,” Thug says. “It’s music that the world is going to embrace. Punk means brave, not self centered, conscious. Very, very neglected, very misunderstood. Very patient, very authentic.”
Continuing on, Thugger goes to reveal his idea of bring “real rap” back.
“[Real rap is] letting people in, letting people know what you go through. Let them know that you the same,” he said. “I just want to open up. Let people know that I’m not just a rapper, I’m a human being. Let people know whatever they go through, I done been through or somebody done been through it. Those are the things that make people grow. People that want to commit suicide, you might give them another chance.”
As far as when PUNK will arrive, Thug said he’d like to drop within “two months.” Considering the interview is from July, we could be getting it as soon as next month. Until then, we’ll just keeping having SO MUCH FUN.
