Without much anticipation or advertising, Future and Young Thug released “Super Slimey” on Oct. 20, their new collab tape with 13 unique tracks that accurately sum up both artists style without one overpowering the other. Instead, they complement each other’s flows while still staying true to their own style. Thug stays autotuned and sporadic while Future stays deeper yet not quite mellow or wild.

Because of their two distinct styles, there’s a variety of song types throughout the album ranging from a hyped up party vibe to a more chill activity type vibe. These two styles balance each other out perfectly for a more general sound that anyone can appreciate.

While the album didn’t have much hype behind it, the fan bases of both Future and Thugger remain so strong that hyping up the release wasn’t needed. Fans and even those who have just heard of either rapper jumped on their music outlets to listen the second it dropped. In only 13 days, the bootleg tape on Soundcloud gained over twenty-thousand likes.

Killed Before” shows the more vocal side. It’s more singing than rapping and the song really tests their vocal abilities. It’s a cute song, kind of bubbly and upbeat. It was completely unexpected for Future and Thug to have made together.

Their song “Patek Water” featuring the artist Offset is one of my favorite songs. It’s one of my favorites partially due to the feature but also because it is purely a slap. It incorporates Thug’s high pitched auto tune muses with the classic trap sound, making the song an instant hit and Offset adds the culture to top it off.

The cover art and name of the album are representative of both artists brands. However, the album represents more of Thug’s style with slime in the title and the snake on the cover. Future appears in the grainy background and the slight purple tint on the snake’s body. The art accurately depicts both of the artist’s influence on the album. 

Even though I had an idea I needed more Future x Thug tracks in my future, I never would’ve expected that this would be the tape I needed to get me out of a depressive mode. We should all be thankful for the unforeseen music culture drops like “Super Slimey” and appreciate the artists who give us such good slaps. Re2pect.
