It was going to be an epic showdown: Lil Wayne’s Free Weezy and Young Thug’s Slime Season were due out on the same day: tomorrow, July 4th. The two rappers have been trading shots all year, and now it seemed like there would be a head-to-head match-up where the two releases could be compared with sales or downloads. Old-fashioned, to be sure, but still fun.
It turns out that’s not going to happen. Yesterday, Thug tweeted, “I got good news and bad news which 1 yall want first?” He waited more than 18 hours—presumably he was actively counting Twitter votes during that time—before following that with an announcement that Slime Season “will not come out tomorrow.” He will, however, put out one song, the London On Da Track-produced “Again.”
