    Slime Language is a 6/10 for me, not garbage but nothing really special minus a couple songs and a few moments

    But can Thug be judged off a compilation label album? Or s---, even his three song EP from earlier this year? His 2018 output has definitely been hit or miss but this has also been his most quiet year yet and there have been moments of absolute brilliance (see MLK, On Me, etc)

    What are your thoughts on Thug today? Has he peaked and we're witnessing a decline of sorts? Do you think he can top BTG or any of his past projects in the future?

    I would like him to start working with different producers, not that I don't mind Wheezy or more London leaks but just something that can help expand his already remarkable range.

    Spaghetti was 2014, i think it was an early version of Travis Scott's Skyfall. Pacifier was 2015

    Amen. But that goes for future as well.

    Songs like For Yall, Pacifier etc are examples of when he drops that generic sound production wise (not that it isn't good but still)
