Two years after the release of his last full-length solo project, Beautiful Thugger Girls, Young Thug's new project has arrived. After a few title changes, he settled on So Much Fun, because the project is full of "fucking parade music." Or at least that's what he told No Jumper last month. "It ain't no storylines to it," he added. "This shit is all about fun. If you're not having fun or in a fun mood, don't even play this album." So, did Thug deliver a project full of songs perfect for the end of summer? Is it his biggest and best project yet? After an initial spin on Friday, we gathered our thoughts and wrote down our first impressions. These are the biggest takeaways from a first listen of Young Thug's new project, So Much Fun.
Young Thug is still a genius at naming songs
“What's the Move” with Lil Uzi Vert is a work of art
He avoided the temptation to make a bunch of big pop radio songs
He’s putting on for YSL
He answers the ‘question of the century’
The project lives up to its title, and it's inspiring memes
Fans are going nuts over So Much Fun, and to commemorate the project, they've been flooding timelines with hilarious memes. The majority of the meme love has been reserved for the project’s features, specifically "Sup Mate" with Future and "What’s the Move?" featuring Lil Uzi Vert. Most of the memes display images of Uzi or a comparison of Pluto and Slime to other dynamic duos in pop culture. Thug told fans that this project was meant for listeners to have fun, and they've obliged. We're here for it. —Jessica McKinney
