Founder of Young Stoner Life, Young Thug recently put the music world on high alert. Out of nowhere, he dropped an album cover and release date on his social media platforms, and now Slime Language 2 is officially here. With plenty of features for this compilation album, the likes of Big Sean, NAV, Yung Bleu, Meek Mill, and many other great artists show up and show out. The album starts strong with excellent songs such as ‘Slatty’ & ‘Ski’ where the vibes and top-tier production are undeniable.
Then comes a string of massive collabs with Travis Scott, Drake, Rowdy Rebel, Lil Baby, and Lil Uzi. ‘Diamonds Dancing’ featuring Travis Scott & Gunna has a fun bounce to it. You can’t help but constantly bop your head while all the artists do their thing on the track. The mood is then changed as Drake helps slow things down on ‘Solid’. When Drake gets into his slow-rapping, deep thinking bag, there are very few artists in the game that can mess with him. Thug and Gunna follow suit and also provide soothing, good verses.
The production across ‘Slime Language 2’ is extraordinary. You hear many different sounds that make a lot of the songs stand out from each other. However, after the mid-way point of the album, when you look down and see there are still 11 plus songs left it’s a little daunting. Having 23 songs on one project makes it a little difficult to digest in its entirety. You find yourself going back to all the songs you loved, skipping a few you aren’t crazy about, then trying to hear certain previous features that you liked the best. Before you know it you’ve been sitting there for an hour and a half, and you still haven’t finished the album. There are many good songs on Slime Language 2, but there are also a few songs that could have been left off the album too. This would have allowed it to be more concise and therefore make the listening experience even better.
Overall, Slime Language 2 is a good compilation album. Many new artists mix in nicely with a few seasoned ones, and there are lots of melodic, fun songs to listen to. There are also slow vibes to switch up the sound and make you zone out and forget about all your problems in life. Yes, there are probably five songs too many on it, but at the end of the day, Thug is using this project to showcase all of the talents he has on his label, so it’s completely understandable.
There are many songs on Slime Language 2 that you may want to grab and put into lots of your different playlists. That alone shows that Thugger is definitely doing something right. So make sure you check out Slime Language 2 here below at Pass The Aux.
