On Monday night, the Atlanta rapper hit up Instagram with a preview of one of the album’s tracks. The video shows Thug sitting inside a car, jamming out to the song, which features acoustic guitars and a country-tinged flow. Social media wasn’t mad about it. In fact, many fans applauded the sound.
There aren’t many details about E.B.B.T.G., but what we do is pretty interesting. Thug announced it would be a singing album executive produced by Drake. Engineer Alex Tumay later confirmed the project was dedicated to Thug’s fiancée, Jerrika Karlae, and reassured fans it was not a joke. Tumay also said he and Thug have recorded and scrapped about a dozen songs, one of which features the rapper delivering a 24-bar verse that “sounded like Kendrick [Lamar].”
We just have one question now: When will E.B.B.T.G. finally drop?
Thugger promised fans the album would roll out weeks ago; however, we’re still waiting on an official release date. While you wait for more details to trickle in, you can check out the latest preview above.
