Young Thug has taken a rather unique marketing approach to promoting his Slime Language album over these past couple of weeks, which included sending real live snakes to the offices of various media publications. However despite the cool promotion tactic, Thugger remained tight lipped about the project’s release date. We were hopeful that the project was dropping last Friday following hints from Gunna, Alex Tumay and even YSL Records for that matter who teased the words “this week” on social media, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. Instead, Thugger shared its featured guests and cover art, before reassuring fans a couple days ago that the project was finally dropping on his birthday (8/16). And now that August 16th is upon us, or was anyways, so is Slime Language finally.
The follow up to last year’s Hear No Evil EP contains 12 tracks in total and serves more of a compilation project from his YSL Records, featuring guest appearances from the likes of Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert, Gunna, Duke, Tracy T, Jacquees, and even his girlfriend Karlae, who appears on the song “U Aint Slime Enough” with Duke, among others. Meanwhile production is handled by Wheezy, Southside, TM88, & others. As for the cover art, it features 3 sign language hands that spell out “Young Stoner Life,” the name of Thugger’s record label under 300.
