Though Young Thug may be best known for his Auto-Tuned vocals, it's his unpredictable marble-mouthed delivery and improvised lyrics that make him one of hip-hop's most interesting (and frequently imitated) personalities. On his recent mixtape, Beautiful Thugger Girls, the Atlanta rapper strips away the trap stylings of his previous records and embraces a more subdued R&B vibe—including a track that might be the closest he'll ever come to writing an acoustic guitar ballad. Taking a short break from his daily routine of writing 10 songs, Young Thug will kick off Red Bull Sound Select's 30 Days in Chicago concert series with an intimate show at Metro.
November is already a great month for concerts in Chicago, but Red Bull Sound Select's 30 Days in Chicago festival is bringing even more fantastic acts to the city just before winter sets in. The month-long fest hosts a concert or event every day of the month (except for Thanksgiving, obviously), featuring a lineup packed with notable local talent (Noname, Kweku Collins, Whitney) and some prominent national acts (Kehlani, Migos, Parquet Courts). There's hip-hop, R&B, electronica and rock represented among the 29 events—all of which are $15 or less to attend. If you missed out on tickets, keep an eye on the Sound Select social channels and arrive early to snag extras at the door.
