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.
