Young Thug has released his new album, Punk. Despite the album title and the fact that Young Thug recently did an NPR Tiny Desk Concert with Travis Barker on drums, this isn't Thugger embracing the whole pop punk/emo/rap thing; it's actually a very somber album, with several songs fueled by soft, arpeggiated guitars and no drums. It's loaded with impressive guests -- Drake, Future, A$AP Rocky, Post Malone, Travis Scott, J. Cole, Gunna, Doja Cat, Nate Ruess, the late Juice WRLD and Mac Miller, and more -- and the star-studded cast does not disappoint. Like a lot of recent mainstream rap albums, it's a little long (20 songs in about 63 minutes), but there's a lot to like about it. Listen below...
