Freeband Gang's FBG Wookie kicked off the new year with his fresh mixtape The Beginning, featuring Young Thug and Freebandz founder Future. The 14-track project boasts production from ATL Jacob, 808 Mafia, iLLyOnTheBeat, PyrexTurnMeUp, and more.

"All My Dogs Kings" featuring Future is streaming up top; hear the Futch-assisted "Devotion" below:

The entire DJ Jay Rock–hosted tape is available for free thanks to LiveMixtapes. Stream and/or download all 14 tracks below:

The Beginning follows Future's song-stealing appearance on N*E*R*D's "1000," an indisputable standout from the trio's seven-years-in-the-making NO_ONE EVER REALLY DIES.

Meanwhile, Young Thug already has a nearly full slate for 2018. The long-rumored Thugger x TM88 project, now featuring Southside, has been completed. Thug has also been spending time in the studio with Blink-182's Travis Barker.

I'd be remiss if I closed out this article without reminding everyone that Thugger had one of the best goddamn songs of 2017 with his Beautiful Thugger Girls centerpiece "Family Don't Matter," featuring Millie Go Lightly. In a perfect world, Thugger would hire Blink to back him for a "Family Don't Matter" remix at the 90th Academy Awards ceremony, despite the fact that the song has no relationship to any of this year's possible nominees.
