Young Thug may be just a few days removed from his debut studio album, So Much Fun, but the notoriously prolific rapper and second-time FADER cover star has another LP on the way. As our own Jordan Darville reports in his story on the rapper for The FADER issue 118, Thug hopes to release a new project called Punk in the next couple of months.

“It's most definitely touching music,” he says of the album. “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.” Thug also says that he wants Punk to reintroduce what he calls “real rap” to the world: “[Real rap is] letting people in, letting people know what you go through. Let them know that you the same.”
