After delaying the weekend release of his new mixtape Slime Season, Young Thug promised a new single called "Again." That didn't happen, but the rapper indicated a video for "Paradise" would drop tonight at 7:30. There's still time on the west coast, but in case that doesn't happen, for now we can enjoy a snippet of "First Up" uploaded to Thugger's YouTube page, and a leak of "Calling Your Name, both produced by Goose.
It's likely only a snippet of "First Up," as it's just one Young Thug verse and three minutes of instrumental, but "Calling Your Name" is the real thing. Because of Thugger's propensity for mind-boggling lines turned up to 11- to say nothing of his auto-tuned attempts to harmonize with the pitched-up vocal samples - it's a sweet serenade like no other. I'm certain he's the only rapper who could make "booty fat like she eat asses" sound romantic.
UPDATE: Another new track has been added to the fray: "Like", featuring Trae Tha Truth and Skeme.
