Young Thug: 11 Of His Best Songs Ranked
Young Thug, born Jefferey Lamar Williams, has made a name for himself with his distinct voice and contributions to trap music. Thug began to get mainstream success with his single 2014 singles “Stoner” and “Danny Glover.” He later amassed more critical acclaim with the release of his 2015 mixtape Barter 6 and two installments of his Slime Season series. In 2019, he won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for his contributions to Childish Gambino’s “This Is America.” Young Thug released its debut studio album, So Much Fun in 2019. The album debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 and included the Billboard Hot 100 top-twenty singles “The London” and “Hot.” Under the rapper’s label YSL (Young Stoner Life) collective, he has also elevated the next generation of hip-hop in acts in rappers such as Gunna, Lil Duke, the late Lil Keed, and previously signed artist Lil Baby.
Take a look at 11 of Young Thug’s best songs:
"Halftime" shows Young Thug's unique style, especially the eleven-second long "skrrt" ad-lib. The track is produced by Thug’s DJ Kip Hilson and is found on his 2015 project 'Barter 6.'
Young Thug tapped in fellow ATL rapper Future for "Relationship" off of his 2017 album 'Beautiful Thugger Girls.' In the song, the two ATL natives rap about how they treat women when they are in a relationship. The music video for the track was inspired by the adult entertainment franchise 'Girls Gone Wild.'
Young Thug and Gunna recorded "Solid" for the second compilation album 'Slime Language 2' under their label YSL Records. The track supports a feature from frequent collaborator Drake. The rapper's originally recorded "Solid" for Drake's 'Certified Lover Boy' but since Drizzy had to delay his album due to a knee injury, they decided to put it on 'Slime Language 2' instead.
Young Thug and Gunna recorded this track for the Young Stoner Life collective 'Slime Language 2.' The compilation project 23 tracks with multiple tracks by Thug, Gunna, and other YSL signees. The song became very popular on TikTok when the two rapper's created the "Ski" dance challenge.
Young Thug and Chris Brown recorded "Go Crazy" for their joint album 'Slime & B' which dropped in 2021. The track samples The Showboys' 1986 single, “Drag Rap (Triggerman)."The official remix features Future, Lil Durk, and Latto. The song stayed on top of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart for 28 weeks, a record. The record was previously held by Chris and Drake's "No Guidance" collaboration which stayed at the top for 27 weeks.
"Check" was the lead single to Young Thug's breakout commercial mixtape 'Barter 6.' London on da Track produced the record. Thug spoke to Clique on how the song came together: "‘Cause at any given time I could learn something and I really want to express it right when I learn it, like, 'Oh wow, pull the beat up.’ I got a check, like, I just got a check: 650,000. I’m in the studio, she bring me the check. I’m like, ‘What the f---.’ I’m like, ‘Got a check I got a check,’ and just made a song."
On "Hot" Young Thug and Gunna trade verses back and forth. However, the making of this song had a lot of leg work for Thug's labelmate since he fell asleep during the session. “Gunna actually recorded it by himself. I fell asleep,” Young Thug said per Genius. "He played it when I woke up. I knew it was that type of song. He don’t usually even remind me of songs because we got so much music… So that’s when I knew like it must be that type of song cause he aint never gon' be like, ‘Listen to what I did last night.’ That was one of the first times he did that." "Hot" debuted at No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 and later peaked at No. 11 on the chart. The song was later supported by a Travis Scott-assisted remix. Two months after the remix release, the three friends made a music video.
"The London" dropped in 2016 on Thug's album 'So Much Fun.' The track features J. Cole and Travis Scott in addition to Thug's contribution. The song is named after a luxury hotel located in Midtown Manhattan. This was the first time Cole worked with Thug and Scott. Thug and Scott previously worked together on "Hot," "Pick Up The Phone," "Out West," and several more. The record received a nomination for "Best Rap Sung/Performance" at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
Young Thug is the featured artist, along with Quavo, on Travis Scott's "Pick Up The Phone." The track was released in 2016 on Scott's album 'Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.' "Pick Up The Phone" marked Thug and Scott's fifth collaboration together following 'Days Before Rodeo's' "Skyfall," "Mamacita," 'Rodeo's' "Maria I'm Drunk" and the non-album cut "Nothing But Net."
Although there was legal drama after the release of "Best Friend," this track is arguably Young Thug's best song to date. According to Complex, Louisiana rapper and Vine star Tokyo Vanity threatened to sue the Atlanta rapper for copyright infringement after she felt as though he ripped off the hook of her cut "That's My Best Friend." The director of the music video, Be El Be, was interviewed by The Fader at the time and spoke on how the track oozes self-confidence. "If [Young Thug is] his own butler, if he’s catching himself with himself, making love to himself, if he’s in the bathroom getting changed and it’s just him and him—it’s showing his best friend is himself," he said. "That self-esteem! He’s a very stylish young man, so I would say that the inside meaning of that is that he is his own best friend."
