Mixtape Review | Young Thug – Slime Season 3

This mixtape came out on March 25th this year. It’s the third & final installment in Young Thug’s “Slime Season” trilogy. You’re probably wondering why I’m listening to this since the last time I reviewed a Young Thug project, it ended up getting a 38. I actually kinda like Young Thug now tho… Don’t get it twisted, I still know that he’s fucking God awful, but when he makes a song that isn’t complete dog shit, I can’t stop myself from listening to it. I still listen to songs like With That & Old English all the time. I like Young Thug for the same reasons that I like Gucci Mane; his lyrics are so bad that I like listening to his shit just to make fun of it, and he actually does have a knack for coming up with catchy melodies. I’m expecting this shit to be really wack, but I’m kind of excited for the songs that aren’t wack. After The Barter VI, Young Thug released Slime Season 1, Slime Season 2, and I’m Up. I obviously didn’t get around to checking any of those tapes out, but they’re ALL on my schedule, so it’ll happen eventually. It probably won’t be anytime soon, but it’s on the way. Also, when the hell is that Metro Thuggin’ project comin’ out? Is that still happening? Anyway, he did the same bullshit that he did with The Barter VI again; he’s charging people money for this mixtape. I guess he has to get paid somehow. He should call it an EP instead tho. This is only 8 tracks long. It could pass for an EP. Whatever. It doesn’t really matter. I think this is supposed to be the last project that he releases before Hy!£UN35. What? You don’t know what Hy!£UN35 is? Where have you been? Hy!£UN35 is the highly anticipated debut album from Young Thug. That’s right. His real album title is Hy!£UN35. That’s not some weird typo that I keep making. That’s how you spell his upcoming album. Apparently, in English the album is called HiTunes. Don’t ask me why the fuck he didn’t just call it that in the first place.

Track 1: With Them (Prod. Mike WiLL Made It & Resource)

This song was premiered at Kanye’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show. I had “SHE SUCK ON DA DICK ON DA PLANE AND I JUH CALL HER AIRHEEEEAAAADD” stuck in my head for about two weeks after I heard this song the first time. This beat is dope. The primary loop isn’t that interesting, but the beat still sounds pretty good when the bass comes in. The first verse obviously wasn’t anything special. There weren’t even really any lines that stood out for being super dumb. It was just an average verse. Honestly, I probably wouldn’t like this song if he didn’t have that Airhead line. It’s dope tho. Well, it really isn’t, but I enjoyed it. Well, I enjoyed the hook. I don’t think I can call this a good song since I only really fuck with the hook, but I’m not gonna delete it. The hook is dope. The song as a whole is just okay tho. 3/5

Track 2: Memo (Prod. London On Tha Track)

This beat is dope af. This hook is great too. I was a little worried at first because it seemed like he was using the same flow & melody that he used on Check, but once the beat dropped it got better. Fuck, man. Honestly, London On Tha Track is a lot better than Metro Boomin’. Maybe I’m just getting tired of Metro Boomin’s production. Oh God… Okay, the first verse was goin’ really well at first; the lyrics weren’t good, but he had a melodic delivery, and it was real catchy, but the way he ended it made me really uncomfortable… “Bitches see us and smile like what it do.” There’s nothing wrong with the lyrics, but the way he said it just sounded really slimy and creepy. It’s really not… Oh shit. I guess it’s possible that he did that on purpose… “Slimy” was the first word that came to my head when I was trying to describe the way he sounded. I’m pretty sure that’s a coincidence tho. There’s no way he’s smart enough to actually make his music correlate with the project’s title in any way. It was only one line anyway. It’s not that big of a deal. The second verse was fine. I fuck with this song. His voice sounded a little too squeeky at times, but for the most part I like this shit. The hook & beat are both dope af. This song is dope. 4/5

Track 3: Drippin’ (Prod. Allen Ritter)

What the fuck is happening right now? I’m a little bit passed the halfway point of this song, and I’m not really feelin’ it… The beat’s kinda cool, but that’s pretty much all I can say for this one. I didn’t like his flow on the first verse, and his vocals sounded pretty terrible too. The hook is wack af. Especially at the end where he just yells “nigguuuuuuuuuuuuuaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!” I don’t know what the fuck he thought he was doing when he recorded that hook. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t even saying real words on the first half of the second verse. Of course the only thing I could understand was “nigga.” Holy motherfuck. This second verse is absolutely terrible. Okay, the song just ended. That shit was wack af. This song is really, really bad. It starts out okay, but it just gets worse and worse as the track progresses. The first verse was bad enough, but the second verse took it to another level. I can’t fuck with this shit. This shit is wack af. 1/5

Track 4: Slime Shit Feat. Yak Gotti, MPA Duke & Peewee Roscoe (Prod. Ricky Racks)

This beat is great. The hook isn’t that bad, but it’s not really good either. It’s average. I’d say slightly below average actually. Yak Gotti’s on the first verse. Eh… It was alright. It’s average for a Trap verse. There’s a line in the hook about “Lighting up your tacos.” I’m not really sure what that’s supposed to mean. Duke’s on the second verse. It’s pretty terrible. He just sounds like Young Thug with a deeper voice. This hook is actually pretty annoying. Peewee Roscoe had the wackest verse out of all of them. It’s over. Young Thug didn’t have a verse. Normally that’d be a good thing, but a verse from him probably would’ve been more entertaining than any of these other inarticulate fucks. Wow. That sounded really mean… Anyway, I’m not feelin’ this shit. The beat was dope af, but pretty much everything else about this track is bad. This is wack to me. 2/5

Track 5: Digits (Prod. London On Tha Track)

I kinda fuck with this hook, but not really. I think I’d have to be in the right mood to enjoy this track. I’d have to be with my friends, and I’d have to be dangerously drunk. I don’t drink tho, so that’d never happen. Hahaha. He’s in denial that he farted. “My racks are squeaking, I’m not farting.” A lot of people have been saying that this track is hard af, but it’s honestly not that good to me. The beat’s kinda cool, but nothing else really stands out about this track. The hook is just another average Young Thug hook. Actually, the beat isn’t really even that good either. It just sounds like every other average London On Tha Track beat. There’s apparently a version of this song with Meek Mill. I might update this review when that shit drops, but I doubt I’ll like it much more than this shit. This isn’t even that bad tho. It’s just not good to me. It’s alright. 3/5

Track 6: Worth It (Prod. London On Tha Track)

nfzh2p0

I know I’ve heard this track before because I watched the music video. I didn’t really like the song, but I guess I can give it another shot. Huh… This hook is actually kinda dope. The lyrics weren’t good, but the melody is kinda catchy. The first verse is starting now. Oh God… I remember this shit. “That pussy look just like a cut; a soakin’ cut, lil nigga.” I’ve never been so turned off by a description of a vagina before. This is a love song, and y’all know I don’t like songs about relationships and shit like that, so I guess it makes sense that I don’t like this bullshit. The lyrics are pretty terrible. I don’t know. The hook has a dope melody, but other than that this shit is wack. The music video is really bad… It starts out with Young Thug’s fiancée sending nudes to him. Well, she isn’t completely nude, but you know what I mean. In my review of The Barter VI, I’m pretty sure I said that his fiancée was “bad af.” I was mistaken. I mean, she isn’t fugly or anything. She’s just not as attractive as I remember her being… I think this music video made her look really unattractive to me tho. Sorry, I’m getting off topic. So, she was sending him nudes, then it shows her yelling at him in the middle of a park or something. She looked really fuckin’ pissed, but his goofy ass was just standing there awkwardly smiling at her. What the fuck is this guy wearing? Shit looks like somebody tried to turn an extra large black T-shirt into a poncho. I’m not really sure why that scene with his fiancée yelling at him was included. It’s not really ever addressed. Next it shows him walking into the hotel room where she’s staying. It must’ve been some kinda luxury suite or somethin’ because that’s the biggest hotel room I’ve ever seen in my life. Actually, it might not be a hotel room. I don’t know what the hell that is. Anyway, he walks into the place where she’s staying, and he’s looking around for her I guess. He enters the bathroom, and the mirror is covered in steam because she’s taking a shower, so he writes “Thug was here” on it with his finger. Then he enters the bedroom and starts gettin’ nude. Then it shows her getting out of the shower and overreacting to the message on the mirror. Then the music kinda fades out, and all you hear is thunder as she walks to the bed while dropping her clothes. The music comes back on as soon as this scene ends. It’s some of the dumbest shit I’ve ever seen. Then you get to see Young Thug’s freakishly skinny body rolling around in the sheets with his fiancée. There’s a part where she bites his arm in slow motion, and for some reason I laughed so hard when I saw that. It just looks so stupid. It would’ve been funnier if she was biting into a sandwich or something tho. So after the cringe worthy sex scene, Young Thug surprises her with keys to a new car or something, and she looks really excited, but she immediately runs to the refrigerator. Why the fuck did she do that? Was he not letting her eat or something? Did he put a lock on the refrigerator? She was like “YES. THANK YOU! I CAN’T WAIT TO DRIVE IT! I’m really hungry tho, so I’m gonna heat up some of that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving first.” Oh her name is Rika I guess. Okay, well it shows Rika painting a wall yellow and red. This bitch can’t paint to save her goddamn life. It’s just yellow and red splattered all over the wall. There are subtitles, so it shows her saying “Can you help me paint?” He just stares at her for a couple seconds, and then smiles and says, “I’m busy.” He’s lying down on a counter, staring at his phone. Then she goes over to him and paints his shirt red. Then he walks over to the paint buckets and paints Rika’s shirt red. Then he paints a red heart around the words “RIKA Thug RiKA SLIME” on the wall. Oh, it looks like there’s a little bit of green on that bitch too… Okay, well after the painting scene, it shows Rika yelling at Young Thug while holding a phone in his face. He just smiles at her awkwardly again, and then grabs the phone and throws it in a hot tub or something. That’s it. That’s the whole music video. It’s so bad. I mean, it isn’t that bad, but I fucking hate it. It’s so sappy. Why were they painting the fucking wall? Whatever, it doesn’t matter. I can’t tell if the song made me dislike the music video, or if the music video made me dislike the song. Either way, I can’t fuck with this shit. It’s wack to me. 2/5

Track 7: Tattoos (Prod. London On Tha Track)

This beat is kinda cool. This hook is pretty catchy. The song just ended. I don’t know. The hook’s not terrible, but it gets pretty annoying after a while. The verses obviously weren’t very good. I kinda liked it, but at the same time I don’t think I’d ever wanna hear this again. I mean, I might come back to it, but… Well, no… I don’t think I will. It’s just not that good. I kinda liked the hook, and the beat was dope, but it just doesn’t stand out that much. The lyrics are pretty goddamn terrible too. It’s a boring song. I’m not feelin’ it. 2/5

Track 8: Problem (Prod. Isaac Flame & MariiBeatz)

Ah shit… This beat is dope af. The hook is definitely too long, but I kinda like it. I guess. The first verse isn’t good. Oh my God. I’m sitting in my mama’s room right now, and it’s hotter than Satan’s bowels in here. I don’t know. I like the hook, and the beat, but… For almost every song on this project, I feel like I’ll be enjoying it at first, but as soon as the second recital of the hook starts I just get really bored. I don’t think this song is as bad as the previous track, but I’m just not really enjoying it that much. It’s boring to me. It’s not terrible tho. I kinda fuck with it. It just doesn’t have much replay value for me. It’s okay. 3/5

Final Thoughts:

This isn’t a good mixtape. It’s just not. I think it’s better than The Barter VI, but that’s only because it’s five songs shorter. The production was pretty good throughout, and I think there’s a handful of entertaining hooks on here, but that’s it. Young Thug isn’t a good rapper, but you don’t need me to tell you that. I really don’t see how anyone can argue that he’s a good rapper. He can come up with entertaining hooks. You don’t need to be a good rapper to do that. His lyrics range from funny to offensively stupid. His flows are pretty generic. None of the features are good. The beats and hooks were nice. That’s really the only nice thing I can say about this tape. That doesn’t even apply to every track tho. I think for Young Thug, this is okay. It’s a step up from the last project I heard from him. That isn’t saying much, since the only other project I’ve heard from him is The Barter VI. I can’t tell you how this compares to the other two Slime Season mixtapes, but hopefully this is the weakest in the series. I wasn’t really feelin’ this tape, but I think Young Thug fans will be okay with it. I got a few tracks out of this too. I didn’t hate it as much as I expected to. I only really hated one track. If you’re a fan of Young Thug, you should probably give this a listen. There really haven’t been that many other big Trap releases lately have there? None of them had as much of a buzz as this one did. I guess Young Thug fans will like this… I really don’t know. I’m not gonna try to get inside the mind of a Young Thug fan. I’d be stuck here for days. Anyway, this isn’t a good mixtape by any means, but I didn’t hate it. It’s okay. I guess.
