Young Thug – “Friend Of Scotty” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign)

OK, now this is more like it. A month without hearing something from Young Thug and you might want to start plastering his face on milk cartons, but now we’ve gotten two tracks within 21 hours of each other, with yesterday’s “Gangster Shit” and the latest, “Friend Of Scotty” featuring Ty Dolla $ign. Ty leads off the festivities with some lightweight storytelling about how he feels out of favor with a lady, and Thugger sing-song raps in his signature cadence with some free-associative wordplay and stories of his own about how irresistible his charisma is. DunDeal’s beat is a balance between menacing and playful with deep horns, quick-hitting drums, bell tings, and xylophone hits. Thugger’s back like he never left. Listen.
