Endlessly inventive MC Young Thug is nothing short of high-powered. The Atlanta native exploded in 2014 with the potent, unhinged ‘Danny Glover’ and the sticky, triumphant ‘Lifestyle’ that made more seasoned rappers look old-fashioned. Never one to pronounce a syllable the same way twice, listening to Thug is like watching someone invent a new language in real time. His 2015 album, the Wayne-riffing ‘Barter 6’is a visceral effort and possibly the most defining release in recent mainstream club-rap.
