Slime Language 2 includes twenty-three songs and features from some of the rap world's biggest names, including Drake, Big Sean, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, and more. Of course, Thugger's frequent collaborator Future also clocked in some studio time for the album, contributing vocals to "Superstar." While fans were excited to hear the new record, upon pressing play, those same people were instantly disappointed about the outcome.

"Future baby your lungs not made for all that singing on Superstar," said one fan on Twitter about the track. "Future for real auditioning for the Backyardigans on Superstar," joked another. Sifting through the comments, it's clear that there are not many fans of the song-- or at least, not many of the people who like the record are being vocal about it. The top comments are all negative, clowning Future for thinking he could extend his range this far.

In a new Friday interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1’s New Music Daily, both Thug and Gunna dropped gems on their collab “Ski,” why YSL has managed to be successful for a decade, and the importance of friendships in hip-hop. During the chat, Lowe asked Thug about affiliations and bringing in collaborators who aren’t neccessarily part of YSL, to which Thug added that while not everybody is a direct part of the label, they’re still “all part of the Slime.”

“I’m ready to die about Future,” Thug said. “I’m ready to die by a Lil Baby, Durk And Uzi. I’m ready to die by these people. You know what I’m saying? If it ever comes down to it, this sh-t ain’t got nothing to do with no music. They was a part of the whole situation. There was a part of the whole thing. I always anybody who I had encountered. You know what I’m saying? I always turn them to family. We don’t look at them like a rappers. We all look at each other like brothers and sisters. Bro, we really argue every day, bro.”

At one point in the conversation, Thug elaborated on the creative process behind the new record, which dropped Friday with additional features from Drake, Travis Scott and Kid Cudi, comparing the process to playing a show. 

“It seemed like a show,” Thug said. “It seemed like a Lollapalooza, Coachella. It just seemed like a show. Every moment was performing. Those was more a performance. You got to show up. You know what I’m saying? Everybody’s watching there. Everybody here. Everybody in your shit. Everybody in your face, you got to show up. It just felt like that. Every moment.”

Talking on the success of YSL after a decade since its formation, Thugger attributed the collective’s rise to doing “god work.”

“I don’t care about failing,” he shared. “I don’t care about passing. Like I’m just on with it. When I’m with it. I’m with it. And I feel like that’s the most, I think that’s what keep us successful. Like the fact that it’s all a risk. You know what I’m saying? And I don’t care about the risks. I don’t even think about the risks. When it comes down to family. When it comes down to this Record Label. No none of this – this shit can go down the drain. Like long as I wake up everyday and become a brother, I’m happy with this.”

Boasting new features such as Drake, Future, Travis Scott, Coi Leray, Big Sean as well as the entire Young Stoner Lifer artist roster, Young Thug’s new music baby in Slime Language 2 is an event by every definition of the word.

According to Thugga himself, the recording sessions of the 23-track album played out like one all the same. 

“It seemed like a show,” Young Thug told Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s New Music Daily. “It seemed like a Lollapalooza, Coachella. It just seemed like a show. Every moment was performing. Those was more a performance. You got to show up. You know what I’m saying?

“Everybody’s watching there. Everybody here. Everybody in your shit. Everybody in your face, you got to show up. It just felt like that. Every moment.”

The gold-selling Gunna was also on hand for the interview and he expressed just how much Young Thug’s tutelage has impacted his career for the better. The superstar rappers are known to trade lavish gifts come birthdays but the relationship has a more solid foundation than materialism.

“Ain’t nobody gave me more loyalty than just him from day one,” Gunna revealed. “He showed them more loyalty than I knew. To I learned from. You see what I’m saying? It was taught to me like okay, this is right. Cause I know it right in the feel right. To where it’s like, man, there done been people who I know he knew before me.

“And I don’t get into it with him when and his Cancer form. For me like, Hey bro, no it’s alive. And when you get somebody to do that, you done that. You got to give it back. If you like me, you’re going to give it back. He the same way. He a Leo. They big on loyalty. You know what I’m saying? They want you to scratch their back.”

Boasting production from 2019 HipHopDX Producer Of The Year Wheezy, Southside, Turbo, OZ, Dot Da Genius and many more, Slime Language 2 goes the distance in attempting to provide music for stadium-sized moments once the COVID-19 pandemic is tapered.

Such a compilation requires a lot of sacrifices and Young Thug being the biggest star on the label (“It’s not about me anymore” he openly admits) as he hopes to propel the careers of Lil Keed, Dolly White, HiDoraah, Yak Gotti and Lil Duke into platinum-selling territory.

“We like this organization, you know what I’m saying … It’s founded,” Young Thug emphasized. “Gotta focus on a lot of people, but it’s easy. You know what I’m saying? To do this with a breeze, that’s easy at this point. I’ve been doing it my whole life. So it’s not work for me. It’s another day at the gym, basically. You’re going to get a lot from me to though. Every year I’m trying to go at least top 10, 20 times a year. At least 20 times a year. I’m trying to do this for the rest of my life 20 times a year.”

Thugga concluded, “I’m trying to make sure Gunna and my whole organization do the same thing every year. I’m trying to make them. I’m trying to make sure everybody my dudes do the same thing every year. You know what I’m saying? So it was like my brain, no stop, bro. It really never stopped.”
