Young Thug has finally released the music video for “Family Don’t Matter,” one of my favorite tracks from Beautiful Thugger Girls. The country-inspired tune is both a fun and memorable listen that features wonderful vocals from Millie Go Lightly. The music video turned out to be what I hoped it to be, which takes place on a farm and has Thugger riding a horse and spending quality time with a lover. Check it out below.
King Krule’s second studio album The Ooz is truly a wonderful and absorbing experience. The record has various musical styles with jazz-like guitar chords proving to be the driving force behind many tracks. The album is both melancholy and introspective which makes it a perfect record for the fall season. Every track is noteworthy in itself and trying to decide what are the best ones is a hard chore.
However, there are some tracks that I have been listening to over and over again including “Czech One.” This track is somber and features Archy Marshall singing in a whispery subdued voice. Check it out below.

Whenever Lil Yachty and Young Thug come together, they seem to produce some of their best work. “On Me” is one of the new tracks from the upcoming Quality Control album. One of the memorable lines from the song includes “Any models/that like to swallow/like gobble gobble.” Check it out below.

Big K.R.I.T.’s Cadillactica is southern hip hop at its finest. The album has a sound that is equal parts Outkast and UGK. Every song is as eclectic as the other especially “Third Eye.” It is a laidback track with a head-thumping beat that has K.R.I.T. rapping about a woman who has completely grabbed his attention.
