It only took 12 days longer than expected, but Young Thug’s latest EP On the Rvn has finally been released. Thug confirmed its arrival on Instagram Sunday with the caption "#OnTheRvn midnight" accompanied by a trailer showing what he has been going through these last few days.
Thug previously announced on Sept. 9 that he would be releasing On the Rvn in two days.
One day later, DeKalb County in Georgia put out an arrest warrant for him in light of the eight felony charges he was facing from a September 2017 incident. Thugger was being charged with possession and intent to distribute meth, marijuana, and hydrocodone, as well as charges for possession of Alprazolam, amphetamine, codeine, and a firearm.
On Sept. 11—the same day that On the Rvn was expected to be released—Thug turned himself into authorities. Thugger's go-to engineer Alex Tumay shed some light on the album's delay shortly after that, stating that even though the Atlanta native submitted all the final mixes before going to the police, "Clearances take time."
Just two days later, Thug's girlfriend Jerrika Karlae revealed he was released from jail on bond. His arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 8. All of these moments and more are captured on video in the trailer above.
