Young Thug‘s latest music video features him putting together a collection of his power moves in the form of a newspaper. What’s a “newspaper,” you ask? Good question. Young Thug has stepped in to save the antiquated platform with his video for “Memo,” directed by Be EL Be. The visual for the London on da Track-produced Slime Season 3 cut sees Young Thug looking back on his most recent accomplishments through the perspective of the fictional Slime Times newspaper, hitting on everything from his Calvin Klein ad to the blockbuster success of “Best Friend.”
Slime Season 3 gave Young Thug a strong top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 when it hit stores in March. The album, Young Thug’s fourth in less than a year, featured production from Isaac Flame, Mike WiLL Made-It, Ricky Racks, and more. This year alone, the Atlanta star has also released I’m Up and is set to drop the Jeffery mixtape soon.
“In my world, of course, it don’t matter,” Young Thug said in a recent video for Calvin Klein’s Fall 2016 campaign, which is referenced in the “Memo” visual. “You can be a gangsta with a dress or you can be a gangsta with baggy pants. I feel like there’s no such thing as gender.”
What’s next for Young Thug? In addition to Jeffery, Thugger fans are still waiting on a multitude of other projects. I Came From Nothing 4 is expected at some point in 2016, as is his debut album, HiTunes. Thankfully, HiTunes is referenced in the “Memo” visual, meaning its release could be coming very soon. But when you’re as undeniably prolific as Young Thug, who’s really complaining about release dates?
