What the Hell is Young Thug Saying

I have to be honest, I listen to rap and hip hop but I wouldn’t consider myself an avid fan. As a white boy hailing from the streets of Orange County, CA I am obviously cultured but more of an indie guy at heart. Nevertheless, I do listen to rap but find myself puzzled when trying to desipher the lyrics. Throughout college, I would often listen to Young Thug and even saw him in concert once. My favorite song, Drippin, is far and away a fan favorite amongst my friend group.

The only issue with Drippin is the fact that I can only understand about 20% of the song. If you take the time to listen above, I suggest scrolling to the 1:30 mark of the song. If you can guess more than three words in that verse I will personally Venmo you $50 for your skills. Aside from the fact that Young Thugs sounds like he is rapping with half a jar of peanut butter stuck to the roof of his mouth I think this is a lyrical masterpiece. Did the producers in the studio understand anything he said while recording? Or did they just say fuck it and publish it. Who knows man.

I highly suggest playing this at any party or kickback with friends. Not only is this a phenomenal conversation starter but it is perfect for formal events because no-one can understand the profanity. I would suggest also playing this at a baptism, wedding or funeral to lighten the mood and remind people to kick back and have fun. This song coupled with any dance floor will create the electric atmosphere that any party host seeks to provide.

I rank this song 8.7/10.
