EP Review | Young Thug – On the Rvn

This EP was released on September 24th this year. Young Thug’s actually released a lot of music this year. That Slime Language compilation that came out a few weeks ago was pretty weak, but this is a shorter project, so I’m hoping it’s more focused. I don’t know though. Young Martha is still the only project he’s released that I thought was good. I’m hoping I like at least one song. I won’t be surprised if I end up hating this to be honest though.

The first song is actually not bad. I like the production, and Young Thug’s vocals are kinda catchy. It just feels kinda… Um… I don’t know. I wouldn’t ever listen to it again. The melody gets old pretty quickly, and all the lyrics go in one ear and out the other. The song really didn’t need to be over 4 minutes. You can predict what the entire track sounds like after the first 30 seconds. It’s an okay track. It just lacks replay value for me. I like the beat on Icey a lot. The hook’s kinda catchy too, but once again I feel like it’s not good enough to make me come back. It’s decent on the first listen, but it’s just not good enough to warrant any repeat listens. I’m not really feelin’ the first verse. Honestly the only aspect of the song that I really like is the production, which isn’t even that great. It’s a decent song, but I’m never gonna listen to it again. His high pitched vocals on the hook of Climax are honestly terrible. The beat’s really fuckin’ cool though, and 6LACK sounds good on the first verse. The melody of the hook is actually kinda cool. I clearly wasn’t feelin’ it at first, but it’s kinda growing on me. Honestly, it’s the best song on the project so far. I like the way the acoustic guitar comes in during the chorus. It’s kind of a good song. It’s weird how I went from hating the hook to enjoying it so fast. I like Young Thug’s lower pitched delivery on the hook of Sin. Honestly, it’s not a bad song. I didn’t mind Jaden Smith’s parts. I think the way Young Thug comes in right behind him sounds pretty good. Sin is another solid song that I won’t be listening to again. Real in My Veins is definitely the most lackluster song on the project so far. I’m not impressed by the production at all, and I can’t say I enjoyed the singing from Young Thug. The fast paced flow on the first verse was a good way to switch things up, but as a whole the song is mediocre to me. High is a weird ass song. It’s basically Young Thug’s version of Rocket Man by Elton John, which is super random. I can’t really say I enjoyed the song. It wasn’t bad though. I just think it’s decent. I won’t ever listen to it again.


This EP is okay. There weren’t any songs that stood out as being really bad, but there’s really only one track that I can see myself coming back to, and it’s not even that great. If you’ve heard any other project from him you should know what to expect from this. It’s really just more of the same. I don’t think it’s bad, but you’re not missing out on anything if you decide to skip it.
