Early this month, Young Thug got us all excited after he announced he would be dropping an album "in 2 days." After 48 hours had successfully passed by without receiving the project, it had become clear that we would have to wait a little longer. A new release date was not announced after Thugger found himself locked behind bars and sample clearance issues appeared to plague the artist's go-to engineer, Alex Tumay. When he made his way out of prison, hope was restored and alas, On The Rvn has finally arrived. First impressions have been pretty solid and while some tweaking and tuning have already been announced by the Slime God, one song is emerging as an early standout.
At this point, it's difficult to decide which songs will be the clear favorites in a few weeks time but "Climax" with 6LACK has that certain je ne sais quoi about it. The song has been previewed in the last few days as Thug begins, singing about somebody that freshly walked out of his life. After going through his hook for a full run-around, the Shiloh Dynasty sample comes in as Thugger is perhaps paying tribute to the late XXXTentacion who often sampled Shiloh in his work.
6LACK takes care of the first verse and Jeffery delivers yet another solid hook here. Let us know your favorite song from the new project in the comments.
You said no interest
Said you found a better climax
You said he's swagged out, you leave
It's like a shot to the back
Don't know why you think you're better for you don't want to go
But leave, like it's nothing
